Last game, Bruce Cassidy's team beat Ottawa on the road for the second time in eight days. This time in overtime. The Senators managed to level the score 4 minutes before the final siren, by David Pastrňák scored in overtime to give Boston a 3:2 win.
Even Boston had to beat Ottawa with their best effort. The Bears have a challenging time without Brad Marchand, serving his suspension again. However, Patrice Bergeron is back. Boston's captain's presence on the ice against Colorado should give them at least a fighting chance.
In their last game, the Avalanche defeated Buffalo on the road, conceding three goals in recent times (5:3). Colorado's relaxation is understandable. The team has just completed a crucial stretch. In games against Vegas, Dallas, and Tampa Bay, the club most likely wanted to see if they could take the Stanley Cup this season. The answer was yes. Colorado beat Dallas and Vegas, its two offenders in the previous two seasons, on the road without a loss. Then, they beat Tampa Bay at home. It looks like Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic will have to get Claude Giroux from Philadelphia as a third-string centre. Even without Giroux, though, Colorado would seem to be the main favourite not only in the West but in the league as a whole.

Boston is now only eighth in the East and has to score points at all costs and against all teams to stay in the playoff zone. Without Brad Marchand, the only thing they've been able to do so far is to defend. The Bruins beat Ottawa twice last week and held a 1:1 lead in regulation time against the Rangers, who lost in a penalty shot. Colorado isn't the Rangers, let alone Ottawa, but for the Avalanche, the regular season is almost over. The Avalanche are solidly in first place in the West and can solve their tactical or any other problems for the rest of the regular season. Even against an unmatched Colorado, Boston can hardly hold their own, but the Bears can keep the intrigue alive with a quality defence until the very end. In addition, the Avalanche pay more attention to their defensive play in the last month. Prediction: Total Under.
