Carolina Hurricanes vs. Colorado Avalanche Preview & Prediction (12/19/19)

The Carolina Hurricanes will be on the road Thursday taking the ice against the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center in Denver. Carolina will be looking for a third win in a row following a 3-6 win against the Jets in Winnipeg on Tuesday. The Avalanche will be looking for back-to-back wins following a 4-1 win against the Blackhawks in Chicago Wednesday night.

Carolina Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes come into this one sitting at 21-11-2 on the season following a 6-3 win against the Jets in Winnipeg. The Hurricanes were outshot 28-33 in the game while winning 38 of 67 faceoffs. Carolina was able to score a goal on both of their power-play opportunities while defending the net one of the two times they were forced to skate with a man in the box. They had 10 blocked shots and nine takeaways in the game.

The Hurricanes have been good for an average of 3.26 goals per game this season while giving up 2.62 to their opponents. They have been able to fire 33.4 shots per game while allowing 29.0 on the defensive end of the ice. Carolina has scored 26 power-play goals for a 24.3 conversion rate to go with an 86.0 penalty kill percentage.

Colorado Avalanche

Colorado will get this one started at 22-9-3 following a 4-1 win against the Blackhawks in Chicago. Colorado was able to outshoot the Blackhawks 36-32 with both teams winning 30 faceoffs. The Avalanche were unable to score a goal on either of their power-play opportunities while defending the net each of the three times they were forced to skate with a man in the box. They had 19 blocked shots and nine takeaways in the game.

Colorado has been able to find the back of the net for an average of 3.61 goals per game for the season while giving up 2.76 to their opponents.

Betting Prediction

The Avalanche will take the ice in this one as -123 favorites with Carolina skating in at 103 underdogs. The total is sitting at six on the game. I like Carolina winning on the road in this one. The Hurricanes give up a lower number of goals and they have higher percentages on both the power-play and the penalty kill. The Av’s are spending over 300 minutes per game in the penalty box and I think a power-play is part of the difference, here. My money’s on Carolina on the road.

Carolina is 24-7 in their previous 31 games vs. the Western Conference.

Carolina is 20-8 in their previous 28 games vs. the Central division.

Carolina is 7-3 in their previous 10 games vs. a team with a winning record.

Carolina is 8-3 in their previous 11 games on the road.
