In a game from NHL, we will see Tampa Bay Lightning at Colorado Avalanche.
The Tampa Bay Lightning’s offense had tough time in the first two games but they have found themselves since then. If we exclude those two games, they are averaging 5 goals per game which shows their efficiency in front of the goal. They had 33 shots on the net in the second period at Chicago. This is a team that always shoots towards the goalie and that results in plenty of goals so far.
Avalanche, on the other side, are 6-1-2. Their offense may not be that explosive but they tend to get Ws at will. They are allowing just 2 goals per game and I believe that Tampa Bay will have harder time scoring against this side. Colorado conceded one loss at home and that came against Calgary after extra time by a single point. They were up 2-0 but 1 minute before the end of regular time, they conceded a goal that tied the game.
Even though Tampa Bay are playing very well at the moment, I can’t envisage them getting a win in Denver. I still believe that the game can get to overtime, so the more secure bet would be +1.5 Avalanche, however, I’m going for money line Avalanche.
