Colorado Avalanche vs Washington Capitals prediction

The Colorado Avalanche are going through their struggles as of late, but they're still comfortably the better team in this matchup, and they've outscored the Caps 13-4 in the last three meetings. The Washington Capitals just can't get their offense going, as they've been held to 3 or fewer goals in 7 of their last 8 games. While on the road, this feels like a good matchup for the Avalanche to get back on track. I have no use for the Capitals in most spots these days. Give me the Avs on the road and the reasonable price.
