As with the Anaheim Ducks, the Avs have fared well against the San Jose Sharks, having taken both games. But, as with the Ducks, both games were at the Pepsi Center.

By the time the Avalanche arrive in San Jose for their only game in SAP Center this season, the Sharks are sure to have clinched a playoff berth. Colorado is probably still going to be dancing around between the two wild card spots — hopefully. We’re all hoping they won’t have dropped out of the bracket.

What makes San Jose so tough to beat is they’re consistently good across all four lines. They don’t have a single player who’s dominating, but nor do they have any passengers. And both their goalies are good.

I think the Colorado Avalanche are going to lose in regulation to the Kings. I think they’re going to bounce back and play well against San Jose. But the Avs will probably be lucky to get a point out of this game against a team that’s going to be gearing up for a deep playoff run.

Best Case Scenario: Avs win, gain two points
Prediction: Avs lose in overtime
