Colorado Avalanche vs Vegas Golden Knights 06/10/2021 Betting Odds:
The Colorado Avalanche, winners of the Presidents’ Trophy this year, had looked invincible during the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, even extending until the first two games of the second round against the Vegas Golden Knights. In a sudden turn of events, however, the team seemed to have hit the snooze bar, and three games later, it found itself on the brink of elimination. The Avalanche did not see it coming, let alone the rest of the league and the fans. But it is the reality they have to face heading to Game 6 on the road. The odds are even stacked against them in Vegas, but these forecasts would hardly affect the Avalanche. The team will employ a one-game-at-a-time approach. Colorado recognizes that pulling off the upset against the Golden Knights in Game 6 would put them in a better position to steal the series in a potential Game 7.
Players to watch: N. MacKinnon C (G 8 A 5 PTS 13), G. Landeskog LW (G 4 A 8 PTS 12), M. Rantanen RW (G 4 A 8 PTS 12).
Vegas Golden Knights
Following a statement 5-1 win in Game 4 to tie the series, Vegas seized a closely-contested overtime win in the next game to put the team ahead of the series, 3-2. It was a shocker realizing that the Golden Knights were down 0-2 after a lackluster series start that included a 7-1 blowout loss in Game 1. Coach Peter DeBoer has nothing but nice words for his players, whose gallant fight placed the team on the verge of eliminating the Presidents’ Trophy winners. Vegas must be thrilled with the numbers that suggest that almost 79% of teams that win Game 5 in a series tied 2-2 eventually wins a best-of-seven Stanley Cup playoff series. Those stats must influence the Golden Knights’ confidence heading to Thursday’s game, but the team also knows that closing out a series is the toughest of them all.
Players to watch: W. Karlsson C (G 3 A 7 PTS 10), M. Stone RW (G 5 A 3 PTS 8), J. Marchessault C (G 6 A 2 PTS 8).
