Avalanche Preview

The Avalanche come into this game with a 21-17-3 record overall and they have gone 10-8-3 at home. It has been a down season for Colorado but they are coming off quite the victory. The Avalanche’s offense put up seven goals against the Ottawa Senators. Arrturi Lehkonen and Alex Newhook both scored two goals to pace the Avs. Colorado is averaging 2.97 goals while their defense is giving up 2.83 goals per game. Mikko Rantanen has scored 29 goals and added 24 assists. 


The Red Wings are 5-21 in their last 26 games played on Monday. The over is 4-1 in the Avalanche’s last five home games. The under is 4-1 in the Avs last five games on Monday. The Red Wings are 1-5 in their last 6 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game. The under is 5-1 in the Red Wings last six games as an underdog. 


The Avs are coming off quite the win over the Senators, but overall this season they have struggled, and we don’t want an overreaction here. The Red Wings are averaging 3.09 goals and they have the offense to keep this game close. Detroit might not win this game, but they are going to over the puck line. Back Red Wings +1.5. It wouldn't shock me if Detroit pulled the upset.
