Anaheim Ducks vs Colorado Avalanche 03/16/2021 Betting Odds:
The Anaheim Ducks coming back from a two-goal deficit to upset the Avalanche more than a week ago was something most fans did not see coming. For a season marred by a series of struggles, defeating a team as Colorado came as an utter surprise. The turnout made Anaheim more determined to prove that it was anything but a fluke when they visit Denver anew on Tuesday. That type of motivation is commendable, but in reality, it would take the Ducks more than just luck in order to repeat what they pulled off last time around. At the moment, the squad is sitting on a three-game slide, including two lopsided losses, that buried them at the last place in the West with an 8-15-6 record. That’s tougher with the fact that they’re facing a Colorado team that is currently on a three-game winning streak.
Players to watch: R. Rakell C (G 6, A 13, PTS 19), M. Comtois LW (G 9, A 10, PTS 19), C. Fowler D (G 2, A 11, PTS 13).
The Avalanche has since moved on from the collapse they suffered on March 6. Though they would lose the next game again against Arizona, the team has exhibited great resolve that led them to three straight wins prior to facing the Ducks on Tuesday. The confidence is off the charts for the Avalanche after bulldozing their way against the Los Angeles Kings for a sweep of their recent two-game series: 2-0 on Friday and 4-1 on Sunday. It is noticeable that their present surge is built around three straight low scoring affairs.
Colorado’s defensive arsenal is in full display and they vow to sustain it as they try to avoid falling into another upset trap planted by the Ducks. The team is aiming to create more cushion in the West. At third place, the Avalanche is just a game short of No.2 Minnesota while having the same separation above fourth-placed St. Louis Blues.
Players to watch: M. Rantanen RW (G 13, A 15, PTS 28), N. MacKinnon C (G 7, A 17, PTS 24), N. Kadri C (G 7, A 13, PTS 20).
