Colorado Avalanche vs Vegas Golden Knights 02/16/2022 Betting Odds:
Colorado suffered a hiccup at home as the Stars denied them a win before packing their things for a four-game road trip. Despite the loss, the Avalanche continue to hold the best record in the league with 72 points in 47 games. But while they know they have the capability to recover from a setback, the team is not discounting the challenge of having to play on a second night of a back-to-back away from home. The tools are present to take down the Golden Knights, but more than that, the Avalanche need to be tougher mentally as they begin a grueling stretch outside Colorado.
Players to watch: N. Kadri C (G 20, A 42, PTS 62), M. Rantanen RW (G 24, A 31, PTS 55), G. Landeskog LW (G 22, A 26, PTS 48).
Vegas Golden Knights
Disaster. It is just one of the words to describe Vegas’ loss to the Calgary Flames more than a week ago. The extended break is much-needed after the horrendous defeat. Not only did it snap a previous three-game surge, but the loss also threw a blow on the team’s confidence at a time where it is making a significant push for a decent playoff spot. The Flames continue to wreak havoc on their competition, allowing the Golden Knights to surrender the top spot in the Pacific. But the team sees it as just a slight setback in their process. And with their next opponent being the No.1 team in the NHL, the Golden Knights are looking forward to exploiting the chance to pull off an upset.
Players to watch: C. Stephenson C (G 12, A 26, PTS 38), J. Marchessault C (G 20, A 13, PTS 33), R. Smith RW (G 13, A 19, PTS 32).

Avalanche vs Golden Knights Betting Picks
The Avalanche absorbed a rare loss last time around, but the Golden Knights had a worse outcome. The visitors will not allow a second straight defeat, and that means bad news for the hosting Vegas squad. As predicted by top betting sites for NHL, the Avalanche will bounce back. And indeed they will, and it will be an impressive performance.
Score Prediction: Avalanche 6, Golden Knights 3.
