In a game from NHL, we will see Colorado Avalanche at Calgary Flames.
The Colorado Avalanche lost 8 of their last 10 games and they will certainly be looking for a victory in this one. They are averaging 3.4 goals per game offensively but the problems start with the defense which allowed 3 or more goals in 5 of the last 7 games they played. Semyon Varlamov has given up 67 goals on 759 shots faced and Philipp Grubauer has allowed 53 goals on 541 shots.
The Calgary Flames, on the other side, are looking to boost their confidence even more with another victory after winning 5 of their last 7 games. They are scoring 3.6 goals per game and they are also converting 21% of their power play opportunities. Defensively, the team is allowing 2.8 goals per game and their goalies have allowed 110 goals on 1262 shots combined.
The Colorado Avalanche is not a team that we can back at the moment. They are playing without any confidence and they are losing game after game. The Calgary Flames are the much better side and given the fact that they will be playing at home, I expect them to cruise past their opponents.
