    Colorado vs Nashville: Avalanche and Predators Meet in Music City

    Colorado vs Nashville: Avalanche and Predators Meet in Music City

    Predators look to use humbling of the Hawks as a springboard

    Stumbling recently, after a stellar 11-3-3 season start, Nashville is aiming for back-to-back wins for first time since November 17. The Predators have been plodding along as the Cats are just 4-6-2 over their last twelve contests. The slump began during a five-game road trip as Nashville posted a 1-4-0 record and they were outscored 11-0 during the first three games. The Predators have been better in December as they’ve earned at least one point in four of their six contests (3-2-1) including a 5-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks at home on Thursday. That victory was a needed rebound after Nashville out-shot Chicago by a 37-24 margin but dropped a 4-1 decision in the Windy City two nights earlier. The Predators have posted a solid 9-3-2 record at home this season.

    Early season skid continues as the Avalanche are slowly sliding towards the NHL cellar

    Living up to their lowly preseason expectations, Colorado opened the year with a +6600 Stanley Cup Championship price, the Avalanche have been steadily sliding towards the NHL basement. Sitting with a 12-16-1 record, Colorado is occupying the Western Conference cellar and they are 21 points behind Dallas in the high-flying Central Division. After closing out November on a 2-5-0 skid, Colorado is 3-2-0 in December but they are looking to move past a 4-2 loss against Pittsburgh at home on Wednesday. Colorado’s last three wins, against the Devils, Rangers and Wild, were all by a 2-1 final count and they lost 3-0 during a home-and-home series versus Minnesota. The road has been a rocky path for Colorado as they are 4-7-1 during contests away from the Pepsi Center.

    Colorado vs Nashville NHL Call: Semyon Varlamov (7-8-1 GAA 2.90) is up against Pekka Rinne (12-7-5 GAA 2.40) in the netminding matchup here. After allowing three or more goals in eleven of his first 14 starts, Varlamov has kept Colorado in the game during his last three outings as he’s allowed just four goals on 86 shots. Rinne gave up eight goals on 59 shots in his previous two starts but he was brilliant during a 35 save performance against Chicago. These teams won both of their home games while splitting their series last year as Nashville won 4-3 and 5-2 in their own barn while Colorado posted 3-0 and 3-2 victories in Denver. The Avalanche will be without their third leading scorer for a second straight game as Gabriel Landeskog continues to battle back spasms. Side with Nashville and a 500 unit wager on the money line posted at SportsInteraction.
