Colorado Avalanche vs Minnesota Wild: NHL Goal Total Prediction

Colorado Avalanche vs Minnesota Wild: NHL Goal Total Prediction
National Hockey League action is our focus as the Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche meet in Mile High Country tonight. With a day off in between, these teams are playing the second game of a home-and-home series after the Wild shutout the Avalanche 3-0 at home on Saturday. This NHL Western Conference Central Division duel is slated for 9:00 PM ET on December 7, 2015, at the Pepsi Center in Denver, CO. Expect both teams to light the lamp at least twice here.

Minnesota Wild: Shooting for a season high winning streak 

Apart from the last two weeks of November, Minnesota closed last month on a 1-4-2 skid, the Wild have been one of the better teams during the first third of the 2015-16 NHL campaign. Riding their third three-game winning streak this year, Minnesota aims to win four games in a row for the first time since March 27, 2014. The Wild lost 2-1 (OT) versus Los Angeles and 3-2 (OT) to Dallas in this dynamic during their previous two tries this season. Goaltender Devan Dubnyk (groin injury) left the game during the second period on Saturday and Darcy Kuemper stopped all nine shots he faced to earn the win. Minnesota won back-to-back games vs Colorado to open their season last year.

Colorado Avalanche: Have slid to within one point of occupying the NHL basement

Difficult to figure out, on a game-to-game basis, Colorado is sporting an 11-15-1 record and their 23 points is one up on the Calgary Flames who currently have sole possession of the NHL basement. Following a 4-9-1 season start, it looked as though the Avalanche might turn things around as they won three straight road games. During their mini hot streak, Colorado beat Philadelphia, Boston and Montreal by a 13-3 margin. Since then though, the Avalanche have slumped as they are 4-6-0 during their last ten matches. Semyon Varlamov stopped 41 of 43 shots but was a hard-luck loser two nights ago. Colorado swept the home-and-home regular season series two years ago.

Minnesota vs Colorado NHL Call: During his last two starts, which are few and far between when Dubnyk is healthy, Kuemper gave up four goals during a 4-3 (OT) loss to Dallas and he was pulled after allowing four goals on 18 shots during a 5-4 loss in Winnipeg. Varlamov was shaky at the end of November as he allowed ten goals on 70 shots during three starts. He’s been better during two outings this month as he’s allowed three goals while facing 68 shots. The Wild have won six of the last seven meetings by a combined 30-8 final count and they have blanked Colorado four times during that run. Not fully trusting either netminder here, we are backing the OVER +4.5 with a 500 unit wager on the alternate goal total odds posted on the NHL betting board at SportsInteraction.
