Colorado's Dreaming About the Playoffs
The Avalanche have a considerable margin of victory from ninth place in the conference. Colorado's main competitor for the Presidents' Cup, the best team in the East, Florida, is 3 points behind. However, it's hardly that important for the Avalanche to be the best team in the NHL at the end of the regular season. All the team's thoughts are indeed on the upcoming playoffs and the battle for the Stanley Cup.
Colorado confidently dealt with one of their major opponents Detroit on the road in the last game. The match confirmed the difference in class between the teams. Gabriel Landeskog scored a double: 5:2. Valeriy Nichushkin also scored. For the Russian, this was his 14th puck in the current championship.
Winnipeg's Still Dangerous
Despite a problematic championship, the Jets continue to be one of the strongest teams in the Western Conference. If Winnipeg manages to make the playoffs, they could surprise there. Their lead over the West's top 8 allows them to hope for a positive outcome - 6 points or three wins.
Last game, Winnipeg came close to breaking Dallas' resistance. They fell short when forward Denis Gurianov sent the game into overtime six minutes before the final buzzer, where the Texans proved more decisive. 2:3 was the Jets' third straight loss, albeit to an outstanding playing.
Expert Betting Tips
The Jets have improved in recent games, especially on defence. The matchup with Colorado is the most important for Winnipeg. Based on the game results with the main favourite of the season, the team can evaluate their true strength right now. If Connor Hellebuyck, who has also been partially showing his skills lately, pulls it off, Winnipeg may even have a chance to win. All the more so that Colorado has already checked their capabilities in the upcoming playoffs, and at the end of the regular season, they won't be too hungry for results in challenging games.
