Shane’s Free Pick
The Avalanche’s defense has been lights out heading into this game, and overall Anaheim’s offense has really struggled to score. Look for Avalanche’s defense to lockdown here, and that is going to be the difference as Colorado is going to have no issue getting the job done. Back Colorado -1.5 to cash.
