The Colorado Avalanche will be hoping to maintain their momentum as they come into this final game of the regular season. They will also be aware that only a victory will wrap up the Central Division title. The Avalanche comes into this final game in excellent form, as they have won eight of their last ten.
They have also impressed on the road throughout the season, as they have gone 27-11-3. In their most recent game, they picked up a 4-2 home win over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday. Evan Rodrigues, Denis Malgin, and Mikko Rantanen were among the scorers.
The Nashville Predators could yet end the season in ninth place in the standings, but their playoff dreams were ended earlier in the week. They mounted a strong late challenge after winning six of their last ten, which includes victories in each of their previous two.
The Preds have gone 22-14-4 at home this season, and they come into this showdown after a battling 4-3 overtime success at Bridgestone Arena against the Minnesota Wild on Thursday.
It could be a thrilling game between these sides on Friday. However, we expect the Avalanche to claim victory. We suspect that the additional period of overtime for the Predators could have left a mark on team fatigue.
