The Colorado Avalanche have been the best team in the NHL this season as they have yet to lose a game in regulation, and they should have no problem winning on the road against the defending Stanley Cup champions as they have struggled. The Avalanche have a ton of talent as they have two guys who have at least 11 points, but their best part thus far has been their goaltending. The Avalanche have two goaltenders who are holding opponents under 3 goals per game, and that will play into Colorado’s hands as the Blues don’t have a single guy in double-digit points this season.
