The Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars meet Wednesday in NHL West Qualifying round robin action at the Rogers Place.

The Colorado Avalanche look fo another victory after beating the St. Louis Blues in their bubble opener. The Colorado Avalanche are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on 20 percent of their power play opportunities. Nazem Kadri leads Colorado with one goal, Gabriel Landeskog has one assist and Nathan MacKinnon has five shots on goal. Defensively, the Colorado Avalanche are allowing one goal per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponents power plays. Philipp Grubauer has allowed one goal on 32 shots faced.

The Dallas Stars could use a bounce back victory after getting rocked by the Las Vegas Golden Knights in their bubble opener. The Dallas Stars are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 100 percent of their power play opportunities. Corey Perry leads Dallas with one goal, Miro Heiskanen has three assists and Esa Lindell has four shots on goal. Defensively, the Dallas Stars are allowing five goals per game and are killing 100 percent of their opponents power plays. Ben Bishop has given up four goals on 32 shots faced.

The Avalanche are 7-1 in their last 8 Wednesday games, 11-3 in their last 14 games following a win and 10-3 in their last 13 overall. The Stars are 10-2 in their last 12 Wednesday games, 0-4 in their last 4 games as an underdog and 0-7 in their last 7 overall. The under is 16-5 in Avalanche last 21 overall. The under is 5-2 in Stars last 7 vs. Central. The Avalanche are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Dallas and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.

The Dallas Stars didn't look good their last time out and have now lost seven straight games, but I have confidence in their goaltending and their defense overall that they can bounce back. The Stars have also won four straight meetings against the Colorado Avalanche and five of the last six meetings overall. The Avalanche have been held to two or less goals in five of the last six games against the Stars. I'll take my chances with the Stars and the plus money in this contest.
