Tampa Bay at Colorado
Saturday 06/18 08:15 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Colorado -147 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.52) RESULT: WIN
Colorado hadn't played in nine days, but it didn't matter as its powerful offense and home ice resulted in a 4-3 overtime victory with Andre Burakovsky scoring the winning goal 1:23 into the extra period. It was the sixth win in a row for the Avalanche and unlike the Florida Panthers and New York Rangers can score and score often giving Tampa Bay tougher competition than it faced in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Andrei Vasilevskiy is one of the best goalies in the league, but Darcy Kuemper is not far back and he stopped 20 of 23 shots on Wednesday. Colorado now has won all three meetings this season and it is 58-13 its past 71 home games and 39-17 overall versus Eastern Conference teams. Also, the Avalanche are 43-13 following a win and they have won 10 of their past 11 games playing with two days rest. Take the Avalanche.
