Colorado has recently reminded us how they won the Stanley Cup a year ago. The team from Denver once again dominates the ice, having one victory after another. The first half of the regular season did not work out for the Avalanches, but there were serious reasons for that. The lineup seriously changed. Now things are getting better for the Avalanche, they have not lost in six consecutive games, and in the last two meetings, they won Detroit and Chicago – 5:1 and 5:0. Now Colorado is fourth in the Western Conference standings.
Pittsburgh still has a lot of game problems, which is why they risk failing to reach the playoffs for the first time in many years. The Penguins still have a very experienced and proficient lineup, but all the key players are already very old. Therefore it is not possible to always show good results. There are some bursts of activity, but failures certainly follow them. Now the Pennsylvanians are in bad shape. They can't win four games in a row, which is unacceptable in their position. Because of this, Pittsburgh lowered to ninth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Colorado and Pittsburgh are skillful and experienced teams, but they will play the face–to–face game in entirely different forms. If the Avalanches scored an intelligent move and won in the last six matches, then the Penguins continue to have a crisis, so they cannot succeed in four games. Moreover, the Pennsylvanians have missed the playoff and cannot correct the situation even in battles with league outsiders.
Colorado is in such excellent shape that they have pucks to almost any opponent. In the last five meetings, Jared Bednar's wards scored 25 goals (5.00 on average per game), which is an impressive indicator. At the same time, the Penguins have enormous problems with defense, so in the last four meetings, they have missed 18 goals (4.50 on average per game).
