Detroit Red Wings vs. Colorado Avalanche, 9:30PM ET (View Matchup)

Colorado is 7-2 in their last 9 games against opponents from the Central Division and 15-5 in their last 20 games on a Monday. Detroit has a lot of injuries piling up and Colorado needs the win Monday night. With this being a rivalry, look for the Avs to play inspired against a depleted Red Wings team. My pick is with Colorado.
