The injury bug has hit the Avalanche hard but right now they are just trying to maintain until some of those offensive stars can return.
Can the Stars take advantage of the beaten up Avs squad? Dallas comes into this game red hot and continues to climb their way up the Central standings.
The freefall continues for Colorado. The Avalanche have now dropped 4 straight coming into Tuesday’s game and have fallen to 3rd in the Central when they once held not only 1st place, but by a comfortable margin.
It’s hard to blame coach Jared Bednar for the Avalanches descent. Not many teams could survive the loss of 2 of their top 3 scorers as the Avs have had to do with Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog out of the lineup.
Both players continue to be out indefinitely and even the great Nathan Mackinnon cannot carry this team on his own. Mackinnon has scored in 3 of 4, but the Avs have lost all 4 of those games.
One thing that also became evident about Colorado’s hot start was that they were winning all their games while scoring 4+ goals. That means goaltending and defense could have been a liability all along, but was masked.
Philipp Grubauer did match up with Dallas in his last start on November 1st. He gave up just 2 goals on 29 shots, but the offense provided no support in a 2-1 Stars win. Grubauer is 1-2-1 over his last 4.
Dallas is a -135 favorite on Tuesday coming into the game as one of the hottest teams in the league. The Stars have rattled off 3 straight wins and have been victorious in 5 of their last 6.
The Stars have been getting great defense and goaltending during their 6 game run. Opponents have been held to 1 goal or less in 5 of the last 7.
Ben Bishop aims to continue that trend of strong play on the defensive end of the ice. Bishop has allowed 2 goals or less in 5 straight appearances. Colorado has scored 2 or less in 3 of 5.
Bishop didn’t play in the November 1st win over Colorado as Dallas was on the front end of a back-to-back. The Stars should have momentum knowing they have taken 6 of the last 8 from the Avs at the American Airlines Center though.
The total for Tuesday’s game is 5.5. That’s looking like a solid play towards the under not only because of Bishop’s effectiveness, but also because the Stars offense has scored 2 or less in 4 of 6.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Avalanche are 32-74 last 106 as road underdog
- Avalanche are 4-10 last 14 on 2 days rest
- Stars are 6-1 last 7 overall
- Stars are 4-1 last 5 as a favorite
- Avalanche are 2-6 last 8 in Dallas
Free Dallas Stars vs. Colorado Avalanche NHL Prediction:
6 of the last 7 Stars games have gone under the total. Bishop gets to face a depleted Avs offense but Colorado has had 2 nights off and their defense should be able to contain Dallas in their own rights.
