Here’s a head scratcher: Their power play can not score, they are without one of their top defenseman, and they’re using a third-string goalie, but somehow the Colorado Avalanche have still managed to win back-to-back games.
They have now to tied their series with the Dallas Stars and were able to force a Game 7.
The Avalanche are the only one’s with question marks at goal. The Dallas Stars lost starting goalie Ben Bishop to injury early in the playoffs, in his return he was shelled for four goals on 19 shots in just under 14 minutes of play.
Backup, Anton Khudobin has earned a .911 save percentage and a GAA of 2.86 throughout this playoff run. But still no word if the Stars will continue with Khudobin or give Bishop another go.
Still, either way, on paper The Stars have better goaltending, plus whomever’s in net is playing behind a much stronger defence.
The Stars offense is their weak spot, but against a team that can be as porous as the Avs, victory in Game 7 should be theirs.
Why is Colorado even still in this series? Their goalie, Micheal Hutchinson was so bad during the regular season in Toronto that the Maple Leafs couldn’t even use him as a backup.
But somehow, In this series, he has stopped 61 out of the 65 shots he has faced (that’s a .938 save percentage vs. his regular season .888 percentage).
Sometimes goalies just stand on their heads and find a way to win, does it last a game, series? No one can predict it, and that’s what’s so difficult about predicting this game.
So, let’s look at what we do know: Centre Nathan MacKinnon is the first player since Wayne Gretzky in 1993 to record at least 25 points in 14 playoff games or fewer. He has a point in every Avalanche game so far this postseason.
That, plus along with MacKinnon, other Avs are riding their own respective point streaks, Mikko Rantanen (eight games), Cale Makar(four games), Burakovsky (three games) and Nazem Kadri (three games).
That’s to say, while their defence is weak, and goaltending remains a question mark, the Avs are a powerhouse at forward. They have no D man to quarter back the power play, but never mind, they’re deadly at full strength.
Free Colorado Avalanche vs. Dallas Stars NHL Prediction:
What does this all mean, Avs or Stars? I think Hutchinson still has another bravura performance within him. A third stringer keeping this team in the playoffs, better believe his confidence is through the roof.
That’s going to affect the locker room, and with Colorado’s aforementioned strength at forward, they’ll be coming for the Stars.
