Shane’s Free Pick
The Ducks offense has been awful all season and it’s going to get even worse in this game on the second night of a back to back. The Ducks are averaging only 2.47 goals and they are going to struggle to get to even two goals here. The Avalanche will run up the score, and Colorado will win this game on the puck line.
