Both Chicago and Colorado are in action on Friday night before meeting up in Denver on Saturday night.
The ‘Hawks are at home to take on the Predators, the team that eliminated them in four games in the Western Conference Playoffs earlier this year. Nashville has 10 points in nine games, while Chicago has 12 in 10. Corey Crawford is listed as probable.
Chicago has been off since Tuesday’s loss in Vegas. I had that one as a big win for Chicago on the road but the Knights just keep rolling and doubled up the Blackhawks, 4–2.
The Hawks are squarely in second place in the division with those 12 points and they have come against a difficult schedule. Patrick Kane leads the team with seven assists and 12 points, while Brandon Saad’s half dozen goals are tops.
The Aves are in Vegas on Friday night so while they have the shorter commute back home, their game will also begin later than Chicago’s on Friday. Vegas has still only lost one game and has 14 points in eight games.
The Avalanche did manage to snap a three game losing streak on Tuesday with a 5–3 win over the Dallas Stars in Denver. Matt Nieto notched his first ever hat-trick with an empty net goal in the final minute to secure the victory.
After losing two-thirds of their games at the Pepsi Center a season ago, the Avalanche is 3–1 at home to start this season.

Free Chicago Blackhawks vs. Colorado Avalanche Prediction: it goes over.
The second night of a back-to-back can work both ways but I’m banking on it opening the game up a little bit here. Neither defense is particularly steady to start the season so I think we see seven, eight, nine goals in this one.
