The Boston Bruins head into Mile High looking for a big victory as they face off against the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday.
The Bruins look for their sixth win in their last eight games as they head into Denver to face off with the Avalanche on Sunday and they will likely turn to Zane McIntyre in the pipes who is slated to match up against Semyon Varlamov in what should be an exciting show down between two playoff hopefuls. The B’s are led by Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and Zdeno Chara and should be in the mix in the Atlantic division all season long but they have struggled to win games in the back end of a double header and after a win last night they will be out for an encore but will need to be sharp against an Avalanche side that often gets over looked as a threat in the Western Conference.
The Avalanche meanwhile look to continue their strong play against quality opponents as they are 4-1 in their last five games against a team with a winning record but at just 6-13 in their last 19 overall they aren’t finding enough consistency in their game and must do a better job of that if they’re going to make some noise in the Western Conference. The Avs do have a flurry of offense and should be able to keep pace with the Bruins in that respect tonight but this game should come down to goaltending as both teams have a good net minder but who will show up and make the difference tonight is the big question.
The B’s are 5-2 in their last seven overall and 0-4 in their last four Sunday games while the Avalanche are 1-6 in their last seven Sunday games and 3-8 in their last 11 home games. Colorado is a good team that doesn’t get a ton of credit and they face a back up goaltender here who has struggled in his limited appearances. I am taking Colorado.
