The Los Angeles Kings go on the road to take on the Colorado Avalanche. Colorado has won all three games this season. The King's offense has scored three or more goals in seven of the last nine games. They rank 16th in goals per game and eighth in shots. On the defensive end, they rank 23rd in goals against and eighth in shots against per game. The Colorado offense has scored three or fewer goals in 10 straight games. They rank 25th in goals per game and sixth in shots. On the defensive end, they rank sixth in goals against and 16th in shots against per game.
The Avalanche are 9-1-0 in their last 10 meetings against the Kings. In the last 10 games, Colorado has put up 4.10 goals a game and allowed LA just 1.40 goals. This game will come down to goaltending and the Avs have a definite advantage betwee the pipes.
Play on Colorado.

The Colorado Avalanche are the defending Stanley Cup Champions and will be hosting the Philadelphia Flyers. Colorado snapped a four-game losing streak with a win over St. Louis. The Flyers haven't been much better, losing five of six with the win coming over Colorado. The Flyers have struggled on the offensive end, as they rank second to last in goals per game with 2.41 and are 5th worst in shots per game. On the defensive end, they are giving up 3.28 goals a game. Carter Hart has a 2.84 GAA and a .909 save percentage. The Avalanche are 16th with 3.08 goals per game and are 9th in shots. On the defensive end, they are giving up 2.81 goals. Alexander Georgiev has a 2.65 GAA and a .920 save percentage.
The Flyers have only averaged two goals a game in the last three gmes. , Colorado has an elite power play, and the Flyers are the 5th most penalized team in the league. The Avalanche are 8-1 in their last nine Tuesday games and have won 64 of their last 84 home games. The Flyers have won just 21 of their last 81 overall. I look for the Avs to get revenge in this one.
Play on Colorado.

The St. Louis Blues and the New York Islanders meet up in a non-conference matchup. The Blues are sixth in the Central Division and on the second leg of a back-to-back. The Islanders are fifth in the Metropolitan Division and are on a two-game losing streak. The Islanders will have a rest advantage and are the overall better team. The Islanders will also have a huge advantage in the net. Both of these offenses have been struggling as of late. The Blues are averaging 2.3 goals a game over their last three, while the Islanders are scoring 1.7 goals a game over the same period. The under has hit in each of the previous six games against one another in New York. I like the under inn a game between two sluggish offenses.
Play on the Under.

The Devils are coming into this game playing very well in their recent games as they have won their last 11 straight games now. They are coming off of a 3-2 win in OT against the Leafs the other night and they are not in a great spot here as this is the last game of a road trip for them. They are going up against a Senators team that has been playing well recently winning 2 of their last 3 games, and they have also been a lot better when playing at home this season. The Sens almost beat the Devils in New Jersey last week as they lost 4-3 in OT to them but this is going to be a revenge game for them and they will have the extra motivation of wanting to be the team that ends this long win streak for the Devils. The Devils streak will come to an end here as the Senators win this game at home.
