Canadiens vs Avalanche prediction

Give the Habs credit for upsetting the Kraken in the underdog role, but they haven't won back to back games since mid-January, so let's pump the brakes a bit. The Avalanche haven't lost a game since March 2, and they're 28-6-0 at home this season. The Avalanche have also won 7 of the last 9 games against the Canadiens. This is just two teams in completely different zip codes right now. The Habs are counting down the days until the offseason while the Avs are heating up with the playoffs quickly approaching. There's only one way to go in this game. Give me the Avs and the PL for max betting value.
