Bruins vs. Avalanche NHL Betting Odds

Like most NHL teams, Colorado has been a handful for the Bruins as of late, with wins in seven of their last 10 versus Boston, while averaging 3.4 goals per outing.

It’s been a high scoring year for the Avalanche, as 13 of Colorado’s 21 home games have gone over and they are 25-11-4 to the over this season. Boston is 10-5-1 on the road in 2021–22, last playing on the road on January 10.

This is the first of two regular season bouts between these clubs — they meet again on February 21 in Boston.

Boston Bruins

Boston last took the ice on Monday, falling to Anaheim 5-3. The loss was Boston’s second of a seven-game homestand they just wrapped up. Tuukka Rask stopped 22 of 27 shots, bringing his save percentage to .844 and his goals against average to 4.28 in four starts this year.

On the plus side, David Pastrnak potted his team-leading 20th goal of the season and 12th in the month of January. Pastrnak’s 37 points this season ranks second on the Bruins, while Brad Marchand leads the team with 45.

Forward Nick Foligno exited the loss with an upper-body injury suffered during a fight, and will not travel with the Bruins on their upcoming road trip. Foligno has one goal in 26 games.

Colorado Avalanche

The scary thing about the Avalanche is while they lead the NHL in scoring, they’ve allowed just three total goals in their last four wins, and nine goals throughout their current seven-game win streak. Both goalies have gotten it done for the Avs during this run; Pavel Francouz has posted back-to-back shutouts in his last two starts, while Darcy Kuemper has averaged two goals-against per start in nine games this month. Combined, Francouz and Kuemper have a .916 save percentage and 25-6-1 record.

Nazem Kadri scored his 16th goal of the season in Colorado’s most recent outing, a 2-0 win versus Chicago. Kadri’s 52 points in 37 games leads the team.
