The Avs have been in a bit of a rough patch, but face the Wild who they have had a recent dominance over in the past few games especially at the Xcel Energy Center. The Minnesota offence has really struggled against Colorado, scoring just 3 goals in their two losses against the Avalanche this season.

Alexandar Georgiev has had a .940 save percentage against Minnesota this season facing 51 shots with just 3 goals against.

Nathan MacKinnon is looking for his first Art Ross Trophy as the highest point scorer in the NHL and will want to put in a big performance against the Wild after Nikita Kucherov put in a 3-point performance yesterday against Toronto to take just a 3-point lead over the Avs assistant captain. 

Expect the Avalanche to get the win on the road while holding the Wild under 2 goals in the game.

  • Colorado has won 4 of their last 5 matches against Minnesota.
  • The Avalanche have won their past 3 games in Minnesota.
  • Minnesota has failed to score more than 2 goals in their past 4 matches against Colorado.

After a big 7-4 win against Nashville on Sunday where Nathan MacKinnon collected 4 points (2+2) the Avalanche failed to back that up with consecutive victories losing to Columbus 4-1 away from home.

The loss was Colorado’s third in 4 games and will need a swing in momentum heading into their playoff run, which they have already clinched.

Nathan MacKinnon is still in the race for the Art Ross Trophy, sitting in second on 127 points, 3 points behind leader Nikita Kucherov.

Valeri Nichushkin has missed the past 3 games due to a lower-body injury but could return against the Wild. 

Minnesota Wild Form


Minnesota came away with a 3-2 victory over Ottawa on Tuesday after giving up 2 power play goals to the Senators but Vinni Lettieri scored the go-ahead-goal with 7 minutes left in the period and the Wild were able to hang on. 

The win  was a welcomed one for Minnesota who are still clinging onto hope of pushing towards the playoffs, sitting 3 wins away from Los Angeles who currently holds onto the last wild card spot in the West.
