The Avs can’t continue to get outplayed and win. Colorado has struck an unsustainable balance by putting up subpar metrics and still finding ways to win games. The Hawks have been buoyed by above-average goaltending, and that will be key to facilitating the Avs’ regression.
This line should move further in the Avalanche’s favor, so you may be better served waiting till closer to puck drop, but we’ll be on the Hawks when it does.
