The Western Conference semifinals get underway on Saturday when Dallas and Colorado meet up. The Avalanche would have been the 2 seed and Dallas the 4th in the regular season so this one should be close.
The Stars needed six games, but were finally able to distinguish the Calgary Flames on Thursday. Colorado is clicking after a 4-1 series win over Arizona in the quarterfinals.
Every game in this series has a chance to be a shootout as Dallas has scored 5+ in 3 of the last 5 against Calgary and Colorado boasts the #4 scoring offense in the league during the regular season.
The Stars especially found their offense in the series clinching 7-3 win over Calgary on Thursday. The Flames got out to a 3-0 lead in that game but a 4-point night from Miro Heiskanen helped the Stars move on.
Anton Khubodin will have his hands full in net against the potent Colorado offense. Ben Bishop picked up the game two win over Calgary, but has been deemed ‘unfit to play’ ever since. Khubodin has allowed 8 goals the last 3 – all wins.
The Avs look like one of the teams to beat in the Western Conference after plowing through Arizona in round one. The Coyotes were one of the last squads to make the postseason, but Colorado outscored them 22-8 in 5 games.
Colorado’s Nathan Mackinnon is the difference maker in this series with 7 points in the Coyotes series. Mikko Rantanen had goals in 3 of 5 and Gabriel Landeskog had 6 points vs. Arizona for arguably the best scoring threesome in the playoffs.
Philipp Grubauer has also shown that the Avs can win lower scoring games. The Colorado goaltender allowed 4 goals total in the four games he played against Arizona.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Stars are 9-4 last 13 Saturday games
- Avs are 21-8 last 29 games as a favorite
