Colorado Avalanche Odds
The Colorado Avalanche aim to even their best-of-seven Western Conference second-round series against the Dallas Stars on Sunday when they play Game 4 in Edmonton.
Hart Trophy finalist Nathan MacKinnon extended his playoff point streak to a franchise-best 11 games (seven goals, 13 assists) on Wednesday by setting up a pair of goals in Colorado’s 6-4 victory over Dallas. MacKinnon’s 20 points in a single playoff year are the most by an Avalanche player since Peter Forsberg in 2002.
Captain Gabriel Landeskog carries a five-game point streak (two goals, six assists) into Sunday’s tilt. Calder Trophy finalist Cale Makar had three assists on Wednesday to become the 21st rookie defenseman to record a three-point performance in a playoff game.
Dallas Stars Odds
The Dallas Stars look to rebound from their first loss in more than two weeks on Sunday when they play Game 4 of their Western Conference second-round series against the Colorado Avalanche in Edmonton.
The Stars followed up five-goal performances in victories over the Avalanche in the first two contests of their best-of-seven series before seeing their five-game winning streak halted with a 6-4 setback on Wednesday.
Miro Heiskanen set up Tyler Seguin’s goal in the first period to boost his point total to a team-leading 15 (three goals, 12 assists), tying the franchise playoff record for a defenseman in a single postseason (Craig Hartsburg, 1981). Captain Jamie Benn scored and set up a goal on Wednesday to boost his point streak to three games (one goal, five assists).
