Blues vs. Avalanche Prediction
In what could be a playoff preview in Colorado on Tuesday night, the Avalanche will host the red-hot Blues at 9:30 p.m. ET in Denver. Will the Aves cover as a large home favorite or are the Blues the better value as the road dog?

Robert Thomas extended his point streak to 17 straight games on Sunday with an assist. Thomas has racked up eight goals and 21 helpers during his point spree. He tied Edmonton's Connor McDavid for the longest point streak in the NHL this season.
Colorado Avalanche DFS Spin
Darcy Kuemper surrendered four goals on 44 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets. Well that really escalated quickly. The game was scoreless well into the third period, before the teams combined for five goals down the stretch. Alas for the Avalanche faithful, four of those goals belonged to Winnipeg -- and all four came after Colorado had finally broken through to go up 1-0 on a J.T. Compher goal. Nothing comes easy these days. With this one in the books, Colorado has three games remaining on their regular-season schedule. They'll be home against St. Louis and Nashville on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively, before finishing up at Minnesota on Friday.
Blues vs. Avalanche Betting Prediction
The road team in this series is 4-0 in the last four meetings but the Blues are just 1-5 in their last six games in Colorado and 1-5 in their last six games versus the Aves overall. Colorado, meanwhile, is 51-10 in its last 61 home games, is 43-15 in its last 58 games overall and is 86-41 in its last 127 games when playing on one day of rest.
