Carolina couldn’t head to the Mile High City with better momentum than they will have after dominating the Oilers on Thursday night. The Canes scored three goals in both the second and third period to run over the red hot Oilers before hopping on the plane to Denver.
Andrei Svechnikov was the star of the night in the 7-2 win, outshining Connor McDavid with a hat trick in the win. Svechnikov has 11 goals and 17 points in 14 games and is worth a look as an anytime goalscorer prop bet.
Antti Raanta is the probable starting goaltender for the Canes on Saturday night. The veteran netminder is off to a strong start to the season, holding a 3-1-1 record with a .915 save percentage.
Heading to Finland appeared to be the answer to the defending cup champions early season woes as the Avs suddenly are on a three game winning streak. Playing the lowly Blue Jackets back to back in Finland helped the Avs build a winning streak before taking care of business on Thursday night in their return home against the Nashville Predators.
The Avs are back to winning games but are still leaking goals. Colorado has conceded three or more goals in three of their last four games and are now missing Bowen Byram on the blueline for an undisclosed period.
The Avs are missing a ton of bodies but help is reportedly on the way for their clash with the Canes. Colorado is hopeful that defenseman Sam Girard can return against the Hurricanes after being listed as day to day.
Alexandar Georgiev is expected to start for the Avs and has been outstanding in his first couple of months in Colorado. Georgiev has an impressive 7-1-1 record and a sparkling .924 save percentage in nine starts. The Avs problems come when Georgiev is taking a rest day so their confidence should be high knowing their top goalie is between the pipes to take on Carolina’s dangerous snipers.
