New Jersey Devils vs. Colorado Avalanche Preview & Prediction (12/13/2019)

The New Jersey Devils  will be on the road Friday taking the ice against the Avalanche at the Pepsi Center in Denver. New Jersey will be looking to snap a nasty losing streak after being beat 2-0 in Dallas against the Stars on Tuesday. Colorado will be looking for back-to-back wins after beating the Philadelphia Flyers 3-1 at home their last time on the ice.

The New Jersey Devils come into this game 9-16-5 following a 2-0 loss against the Stars in Dallas. The Devils were outshot 26-35 in the game while winning just 20 of 60 faceoffs. New Jersey was unable to score a goal on any of their three power-play opportunities while defending the net each of the five times they were forced to skate shorthanded. They had 28 blocked shots and four takeaways in the game.

The Devils have been good for an average of 2.43 goals per game this season while giving up 3.57 to their opponents. They have been able to fire 30.8 shots per game while allowing 30.9 on the defensive end of the ice. New Jersey has scored 15 power-play goals for a 13.6 conversion rate to go with a 78.2 penalty kill percentage.

The Colorado Avalanche are now 20-8-2 on the season following a 3-1 win at home against the Philadelphia Flyers. Colorado was outshot 27-33 in the game while winning just 27 of 63 faceoffs. The Avalanche were unable to score a goal on either of their two power-play opportunities while defending the net both of the times they were forced to skate with a man in the box. They had 14 blocked shots and 13 takeaways in the game.

Colorado has been able to find the back of the net for an average of 3.68 goals per game for the season while giving up 2.74 to their opponents. They have been able to fire an average of 31.7 shots per game while allowing 32.6 on the defensive end of the ice. They have 21 power-play goals this season for an 18.4 conversion rate to go with a 79.0 penalty kill percentage.

The Av’s will take the ice as -235 favorites with New Jersey skating in as 195 underdogs. The total is sitting at six on the game. I’m liking the total going over in this one. The Devils are giving up over three and a half goals per game with Colorado giving up just under three. Both of these teams spend a ton of time in the penalty box and I think a couple of power-play goals plays a part in the total going over six.
