Avs shut down Jets

Colorado earned a 4-0 win Tuesday night at Winnipeg to improve to 11-5-2 on the season. Cale Makar gave the Avalanche a 1-0 advantage with 59 seconds remaining in the first period off assists from Nathan MacKinnon and Ian Cole. Colorado added to its lead 18 seconds into the third period on a MacKinnon goal assisted by Matt Calvert and Joonas Donskoi. MacKinnon scored again seven minutes later to make it 3-0 off assists by Donskoi and Calvert. Donskoi scored on the power play with 6:47 remaining with assists going to Nazem Kadri and MacKinnon. Adam Werner earned a shared shutout in an emergency appearance as he stopped all 40 shots sent his way to win his NHL debut.

Oilers doubled up by Sharks

Edmonton fell 6-3 Tuesday night at San Jose to drop to 12-6-2 on the season. The Oilers fell into a 4-0 hole early in the second period before Leon Draisaitl put the visitors on the board midway through the second off assists from Sam Gagner and Ethan Bear. The Sharks pushed their advantage back to four goals later in the second. Zack Kassian pulled Edmonton within 5-2 at the 10:52 mark of the third period off assists from Draisaitl and Connor McDavid. After San Jose extended their lead back to four goals shortly thereafter, the Oilers completed the scoring on a Gagner goal with 7:42 remaining off assists by Patrick Russell and Joakim Nygard. Mike Smith surrendered six goals on 25 shots in the losing effort.

NHL Betting Trends


The Avalanche are 12-2 in their last 14 Thursday games. Colorado is 5-2 in its last seven games versus a team with a winning record.


The Oilers are 5-2 in their last seven games as a home favorite. Edmonton is 1-12 in its last 13 games versus the Central Division.


I feel like this is a nice price on an Avalanche squad that won impressively two nights ago at Winnipeg despite having to turn to an emergency goalie. No. 1 goaltender Philipp Grubauer will be back between the pipes tonight and I trust him more than Smith, who was unsteady in the loss at San Jose. This is always a fun matchup because of the star power in MacKinnon and McDavid. I'm betting on MacKinnon getting the best of the matchup tonight after he was excellent in the win at Winnipeg.
