Analysis

5% COLORADO. Knowing that they can ill afford a third straight loss, I expect the Avalanche to be at their best on Monday. The Avs actually played better than the score suggests on Saturday. In fact, they dominated the first period before Dallas got a late goal. It easily could have gone their way. 

Colorado center Nathan MacKinnon said: “We did a lot of great things, had a lot of chances, a lot of good looks, just Oettinger was great and we made a couple of big errors that cost us.” 

Colorado coach Jared Bednar commented: "…I felt like we carried long stretches of the game for the first 40 minutes. We've got to make it a little bit tougher on Oettinger, getting traffic there."

The Avs are still 33-10 (33-9-1) at home. They're also a perfect 4-0 since February, when off b2b losses. They won those games by scores of 5-1 (against Dallas), 7-4, 5-2 and 5-1. That's a combined score of 22-8. Look for MacKinnon and co. to dig deep and improve on those stats Monday. *good at 5% up to -150
