The Colorado Avalanche lost four preseason games out of five. They were defeated away by Minnesota (1:3) and Dallas (1:3) and crushed by Vegas at home (4:7). The Avalanche conceded a total of 13 goals in three games.
However, some key players were missing from the Avalanche's squad. For instance, Nazem Kadri, Nathan MacKinnon, and Valeri Nichushkin did not appear in the game against the Stars.
The Dallas Stars lost three games in a row at the start of the preseason. After that, they mounted a winning streak of three games at home. The Stars defeated Arizona (6: 3), St. Louis (3: 1), and Colorado. Denis Gurianov is looking amazing in the preseason. He scored two goals and gave two assists.
The Stars come to this game in full strength. Anton Khudobin will most likely tend the goal.
Colorado scored in the third period in their last 2 games.
In 4 games out of 5, Dallas scored fewer than 4 goals.
Colorado will certainly try to get another victory before the start of the regular season. The Avalanche will play in the optimal lineup; at the moment they look more interesting than Dallas. The Stars play well at home, but they have always experienced difficulties at the Ball Arena.
Our prediction - Colorado to win
Colorado have a powerful line of attack with such players as Kadri and MacKinnon. We suggest betting on the individual total of the hosts.
Second bet - Colorado IT over 2.5 goals
