The Colorado Avalanche and the Dallas Stars meet in NHL action from American Airlines Center on Friday night.
The Colorado Avalanche will look to build on a 5-2 win over Anaheim last time out. Nazem Kadri leads the Avs in scoring with 25 points including 7 goals and a team-high 18 assists while Gabriel Landeskog has 17 points with 11 assists and a team-best +11 plus/minus rating this season. Cale Maker has 16 points with a team-high 8 goals and 8 assists while Mikko Rantanen and Andrew Burakovsky each have 14 points with at least 6 goals this season. Darcy Kuemper has seen the bulk of the action in goal for Colorado, going 9-4 with a 2.81 GAA and a .905 save percentage this season.
The Dallas Stars will look to add to a 4-1 win over Edmonton last time out. Miro Heiskanen has a team-high 14 points with a team-high 11 assists while Jason Robertson, Joe Pavelski, Roope Hintz and Ruan Suter each have 10 points with Hintz posting a team-high 6 goals while Robertson and PAvelski each have 4 goals and Suter has 7 assists. Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Luke Glendening has 5 goals as well this season. Braden Holtby has started the bulk of the action in goal for Dallas, going 2-4-1 with a .918 save percentage while Anton Khudobin has 3-3-1 with a 3.73 GAA and an .873 save percentage this season.
Colorado is 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 42-17 in their last 59 games overall while the over is 5-0-1 in their last 6 games following a win. Dallas is 2-7 in their last 9 games as a home underdog and 8-20 in their last 28 games as an underdog while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 division games.
I get the case to be made for a home dog in most spots, but the Dallas Stars are back in my bad books after their recent run of road form. Colorado’s pummeled the lesser teams on their schedule as of late and I think that this spot will be no different. Give me the Avs here.
