The Colorado Avalanche try to bring the series even in Game 6 after digging a 3-1 hole against the Dallas Stars. Can they continue the comeback?

The Colorado Avalanche came out of the gates firing. Scoring 5 total goals in the 1st period against 2 different goalies. They scored 4 of those goals in just 2:36, just 1 second shy of the NHL all-time playoff record that was set by the 1944 Montreal Canadiens. Ben Bishop came off the Injured List just in time to start the game. Something tells me he wishes he could have sat at least another night. He lasted a total of 13:43 TOI, to be replaced by Anton Kudobin who gave up the 5th and final goal of the period on the first shot he faced.

The Colorado Avalanche on the other hand got exactly what they needed from their 3rd goalie of the series, mid-season acquisition Michael Hutchinson. Michael has been a journeyman back-up goaltender for the majority of his career and had never made a playoff start. That all changed Monday night where he stopped 31 of 34 shots(17 in the 3rd-period) for a save% of .912. I seem to remember someone mentioning the number 90 before? Oh well, what’s more important

Thanks to Hutchinson holding Dallas to less than 4 goals for the first time in the series. Andre Burakovsky’s 2 goal, 3 pt. game, and a defense that racked up an insane 24 blocked shots. The Colorado Avalanche lived to play another day. This is where I will find the most positive part of this win for the Avalanche, they can be so much better.

The Colorado Avalanche had to have left a 6-3, seemingly dominating win with a air of contriteness as the final score could have been much more lopsided. They went 0-9 on the power play, that’s right, all 6 goals were at even strength. Plus, don’t forget all but one of those goals came in the 1st period. They gave Jared Bednar plenty to coach up and make sure they don’t forget, there is no longer a tomorrow if they don’t win.

This is exactly why I am going with this Moneyline bet at DraftKings:

The immovable object has officially fallen. The Over stays undefeated for the Colorado Avalanche:

JT Compher is constantly around the puck, so sign me up for this line at DraftKings for him to score a Point:

Nathan MacKinnon has already smashed the Colorado Avalanche playoff scoring-streak. He now looks to take on the NHL record, and will do it with at least 1 goal. DraftKings comes through here as well:

In my humble opinion, the Mile High City gets to enjoy yet another thrilling 7-game series after the 2nd-seeded Avalanche unbury themselves from a self-made 3-1 hole.
