We backed the boys in Black and Gold for FlashPicks on Monday night. It didn’t work out, but if you watched: you know we were on the right side. Boston vastly outplayed Vegas; they just ran out of time. That’s the beauty of sports. Any team can win any given night. Unfortunately for the reigning Stanley Cup champs, I’m not convinced they’ll be as lucky tonight.
Colorado had already been smacked with an avalanche of injuries; then they lost their best player, superstar Nathan MacKinnon, on Monday night. He’ll be out at least 1 month with an upper body injury.
Including that, the Avs’ latest injury report barely even fits on an iPhone screen…
This sets the stage for a massive uphill battle vs. the best team in the league by Points Percentage (85.4%) and Goal Differential (+39). Boston already trampled Colorado 5-1 just a few days ago with MacKinnon. Imagine how it might go without him?
