The NHL is back in action as the Dallas Stars will clash with the Colorado Avalanche and this game is on to the semifinal round of the NHL playoffs in the Western Conference. This is game one of this best-of-seven series from Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.
Dallas Stars Form
The Stars managed to get three wins in a row to take the series 4-2 while scoring 14 goals in the final three games against the Flames. And those wins came as a surprise as they looked like they will be eliminated as the Flames were dominant in the first 3 games. However, they are facing a strong Colorado team and they will need to improve their offensive game. On a positive side, Denis Gurianov scored goals, which now gives him six in the postseason.
On the offensive side of the game, the Stars score an average of 2.58 goals per game. And that is enough for the 26th spot in the league in scoring.
On the defensive side of the game, they are placed on the 2nd spot in the league as they concede an average of 2.52 goals per game.
Colorado Avalanche Form
The Avalanche are one of the better teams in the NHL this season. Colorado just took four of the five games against the Coyotes to move on to this round and they have now won 23 of their last 32 games, dating back to the regular season. Moreover, this is a team that has been dominant in the league since the start as they outscored their NHL opponents 82-55 in their last 28 games. Therefore, the winning momentum is on their side heading into this game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Avalanche score an average of 3.37 goals per game which is the 4th best offensive record in the NHL.
On the defensive side of the ice, the Avalanche is conceding an average of 1.96 goals per game in their last 28 NHL games.
The Stars won their last three games against the Flames. And that showed that they have the potential for more this season. Yet, the reality is that the Avalanche is probably the best teams in the Western Conference. Their offensive is top class. And their game on the blue line is even better. Therefore, take the Avalanche to win this one.
