In a game from NHL, we will see Pittsburgh Penguins at Colorado Avalanche.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have a short road trip, including back-to-back games, respectively on Tuesday and Wednesday. They are coming off a win over Winnipeg on the road by 4-3. They also won against Columbus on Saturday and we can easily say that the Penguins are playing with a ton of confidence at the moment. The Penguins are averaging the solid 3.4 goals per game but they are also allowing 3.2 on the defensive end.
After starting 0-3-1 in November, the Colorado Avalanche have been nothing short of perfect after that, going 7-0-1 in the last 8 games. That includes a road win over Nashville last night and another win over Dallas on Saturday. Colorado is one of the best offensive teams in the league, averaging 3.7 goals per game while the Avalanche are also allowing 2.8 goals per game.
This will certainly be the most exciting game to watch on Wednesday and it is really tough to predict the outcome. Both teams have players that can decide any game. However, finishing a back-to-back stretch favors the Penguins who have the quality and the experience to perform equally well for two days in a row. It is high time the Avalanche lost a game and we might as well see it tonight. An interesting pick is the first goal to be scored before 9:30 minutes have passed. Prediction: the first goal to be scored before 9:30 minutes have passed and Pittsburgh to win
