Red Wings vs Avalanche Preview

Two desperate teams currently looking up at the standings face off as the Avalanche host the Red Wings in what promises to be an intense and close game. The Colorado Avalanche will look to continue their resurgence following a 7-goal performance while Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, and the rest of the forward unit have been showing great puck movement and control in recent games.

Conversely, the Red Wings are allowing over three goals per game – potentially creating openings for the Avalanche to exploit if they send plenty of offensive pressure towards Detroit’s defense. However, limiting Detroit’s offensive option is also necessary because they have proven that they can also put up 7-point games even on the road.

The Avalanche should win this game due to their home-field advantage, but look for both teams to compete hard for every point as they try to climb up in the standings.
