The Avs have been rolling lately. They’re 6-3-1 in their last 10 games and 4-1 in their last 5 games. They have won those 4 games by a combined score of 22-3! Their offense has been dominant all year. Their 239 goals scored leads the entire NHL. Only the Dallas Stars have gotten to 230, which just shows how well Colorado has played offensively. They’ve also been great at home all year. They’re 25-6 at Ball Arena this year. A big reason for that is their scoring prowess at home. They’re averaging a whopping 4.35 goals per game at home! The Avs are also coming into this game with a signficant rest advantage. The Avs were off yesterday and have only played one game since the 4th. The Wild, meanwhile, played last night. The Wild have given up a lot of goals this year. They’re giving up 3.33 goals per game on average. They’ve also been squarely average on the road this year, coming into this game with a 15-15-2 road record. There’s just too much aligned for the Avs tonight. The key tonight will be Avs goalie Alexandar Georgiev. He’s been great at home this year, giving up 2.51 goals per game on average. If he can play like that tonight, the Avs should have no issue scoring against a tired Wild defense.
