Philipp Grubauer started all 4 games for the Avalanche, allowing just 1.75 goals per game and stopping .936 percent of the shots he faced.

Colorado is 22-4-2 at home this season, 25-31 ATS, and the under is 28-27.

Vegas is 19-9-0 on the road this season, 25-31 ATS, and the over is 28-26.

Despite Colorado averaging 5 goals in their first-round game, we should expect a low-scoring affair in this game. Colorado and Vegas have allowed the fewest shots per game among all playoff teams, and their goaltenders have allowed less than 2 goals per game each. In addition to their defensive prowess in the playoffs, the Avalanche allowed a league low 1.93 goals and 24.8 shots per game at home during the regular season. Vegas ranked 1st with 2.21 goals allowed per game on the road and 2nd with 26.1 shots per game. Take the under.
