April 1: Anaheim Ducks, Away

All-Time Record: 39-34-9-7(ties)
Record This Season: 2-0-0

The Colorado Avalanche have beaten the Anaheim Ducks in regulation with a score of 3-1 both times the teams have met this season. Of course, both games were at the Pepsi Center, so home games for Colorado.

Unfortunately, the Ducks’s playoff push has mirrored Colorado’s — they’re both 6-3-1 in the last 10. If you look at overall record, the Avs are better with 41-27-8 vs 39-24-13. Unfortunately, the Ducks have capitalized on the overtime loser points. They’ve been leapfrogging with the LA Kings for the third seed in the Pacific for weeks now.

Anaheim plays a heavy, physical game. Colorado was able to skate around them enough at home to win both games, but now the action is in Anaheim. In fact, this game marks the kick-off of the Avalanche’s all-important final road game of the year.

Best Case Scenario: Avs win in regulation, gain two points
Prediction: Avs tie, win in OT, gain two points
