There was a lot of buzz about the Colorado Avalanche in the preseason, as plenty of pundits liked their chances of going all they way and although that outcome is not out of the question, it is tough to believe the Aves will be good enough to knock off the elite NHL teams with what we have seen out of them thus far this season.
The Coyotes did get the job done against this Avalanche team in their last game, but it is tough to say they really deserved it, as they only managed 14 shots and somehow managed to score three times on those limited opportunities.
The hero of that game was Antii Raanta who was on the bench until the 3rd period, as he was forced into action after starting goaltender Darcy Kuemper had to leave injured with the Finnish goalie eventually stopping all 16 shots fired his way in a pretty heroic effort.
In terms of offense this Arizona team is quite good and it is not like the offense is only coming from a few guys, as this Coyotes team have 6 players with 7 or more goals on the season which has led this team to having a pretty decent 2.64 goals per game with their power play being especially good hitting at 21.2%.
The issue all year for the Coyotes has been the defense, as they rank towards the bottom of the NHL allowing almost 3 goals pre-game and are only killing 82.4% of the oppositions power plays.
As previously stated, the Avalanche are by no means out of the Stanley Cup conversation just yet, but back to back losses against the likes of the Ducks and Coyotes certainly has some fans wondering just how for this team can go.
Now it has not all been the Colorado Avalanche’s fault, as they have suffered some serious injuries to their key stars with Cale Makar not being expected back in the near future, and Nathan Mackinnon also remaining out for this game.
That means the Aves probably need their goaltender Phillip Grubauer to have a good game here if this team is going to get over the line here and get back in the winners circle and he should be primed to do just that as the German sports solid numbers of .917% in terms of save percentage and a stellar 2.11 goals against average.

Free Arizona Coyotes vs. Colorado Avalanche NHL Prediction:
For me the Colorado Avalnche will just be too much here and although Antii Raanta was the hero for Arizona last time out, I do not believe he will be able to replicate that performance and I see the Avalanche being able to get the job done here.
