Colorado Avalanche vs. Boston Bruins Prediction

The streaking Colorado Avalanche host the Boston Bruins in Denver tonight. Colorado comes into this game having won 7 in a row, and 11 of 12 since the COVID break. The Avs 29-8-3 record has them tied with the Panthers for the most points in the league at 61. Colorado is an offensive juggernaut this season, as they are 2nd in NHL in goal scoring at 164 goals. Nazem Kadri, who is in a contract year, leads the Avs in points (51) and assists (36). Defensemen Cale Makar has been electric this season with his 16 goals, many of the spectacular version is 2nd on the team.

After a slow start to the season, the Boston Bruins have turned it on recently. Since the COVID break, the Bruins are 10-3. This streak has propelled them back into playoff contention. The Bruins currently hold the final Wild Card spot in the East, with a record of 24-13-2 for 50 points. Boston is led by rink rat Brad Marchand, who leads the team in goals (20), assists (24), and points (44). Boston is beginning a quick 3 game trip that will have them visit Colorado, Arizona, and Dallas.

Both of these teams love scoring goals. The Bruins are averaging 3.10 goals per game, while allowing 2.72. The Avalanche are averaging a league-high 4.10 goals per game while allowing 2.95. Both teams have top 10 power plays as the Bruins rank 7th at 25.6% and the Avs rank 9th at 24.8%. Colorado also has scored 101 five on five goals (2nd) and the Bruins have scored 79 five on five goals (16th). Both teams also like to put pucks on net as Boston's 35.5 shots per game rank 2nd in the league, and Colorado's 34.9 shots per game rank 5th in the NHL. This game is loaded with superstar talent and I expect to see plenty of goals tonight.
