Anton Khudobin will be between the pipes for Game 7 on Friday against Colorado. Khudobin is coming off a 4-1 loss to the Avalanche on Wednesday in Game 6 when he allowed three goals on 23 shots. He has a 2.88 goals-against average and .909 save percentage in 13 appearances this postseason. Ben Bishop (unfit to play) is not expected to be in the lineup.
Colorado Avalanche DFS Spin
Gabriel Landeskog and Colorado's other injured players are considered to be game-time decisions for Game 7 against Dallas on Friday. "We're probably not going to know until game-time tomorrow on any of those guys," coach Jared Bednar said Thursday. Landeskog and Conor Timmins joined Philipp Grubauer, Pavel Francouz, Matt Calvert, Joonas Donskoi and Erik Johnson on Colorado's injury list on Wednesday night after they were hurt in Game 6 on Wednesday. Bednar wasn't sure who would be available to play on Friday.
NHL Playoffs Second Round Prediction
This series has been an over-hitting machine, cashing the over in five of the six games. The only time the under hit was in Game 6, when the teams combined for five goals and fell just short of the total of six. Otherwise, this has been a high-scoring series and there’s no reason to believe that today won’t be high-scoring as well. Colorado’s speed has given Dallas’ blue-liners all sorts of trouble and the goaltending situation has been ever-changing on both sides. The over is also 5-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams, is 6-1 in the Stars’ last seven games overall and has hit in eight of the Avalanche’s last nine games. So sit back, enjoy what should be a fun Game 7 and watch the goals pour in.
