The Colorado Avalanche is 4-2-0 in the 2014-18 season of the NHL so far. They have 8 points, one of the top scores in NHL right now. The Nashville Predators, on the other hand, are in a worse position. Their score so far is 2-2-1. They are currently having 5 points, looking forward to another win to scale their score further.
Sven Andrighetto leads the team in points and goals, albeit with not so brilliant scores of 6 and 3. Further, Nathan MacKinnon leads the team in assists with a 4.
Colorado’s offense is better than that of the Predators but only slightly. For example, the overall goals for the Avalanche are 3.17 against Nashville’s 2.80. As for shots, they lead with 31.50 against Nashville’s 31.00. Surely, no team can be said to have the edge. Nashville leads 29.17-13.79 when it comes to PP/PK percentage.
Patrik Nemeth is out after he had to leave the last game. Tyson Jost, however, is in better condition and moved to the Probable section for the game against Nashville.
The Nashville Predators are a solid team. They are yet to be on a decent win streak. Filip Forsberg leads the team in points and goals. He leads with better scores than the Colorado Avalanche’s foreman, Andrighetto. Forsberg’s scores so far are 7 and 5 for points and goals, respectively. P.K. Subban leads the Predators in assists with a 6.
Nashville is a strong team that can give any good team a run for its money. They can prove to be rightfully challenging, especially because they are playing this game at home.
Colorado surely has a better score in NHL this season so far, but Nashville has what it takes to surpass that score.
Nich Bonino’s availability for the game remains to be a question mark. Undisclosed so far.
