Notes On The Colorado Avalanche For Game 3 Of The NHL Playoffs

After completely annihilating the Golden Knights in a Game 1 blowout, Colorado was expecting a much more competitive contest in Game 2 – and that’s exactly what they got. Despite an overwhelming number of shots from the Colorado Avalanche and dominating faceoff play, they won their tenth straight game on the strength of 39 saves from Philipp Grubauer and OT winner Mikko Rantanen.

Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer is expected to play critical roles in the next two games against Vegas. He posted a 4-2-1 record with 1.86 GAA and .935 save percentage in seven regular-season matchups, while few goals were scored on 66 shots he faced from Vegas so far during this series.

The Golden Knights were not happy about the game, because they played well against the Avalanche but then let them score a goal because Reilly Smith took away Rantanen’s stick on a faceoff. After the game, Golden Knights head coach Peter DeBoer didn’t mince words, labeling it “a soft call.”

However, the Avalanche strengthened their home-ice advantage by beating Vegas 3-2 in Game 2. The Golden Knights enter Game 3 of their NHL playoff series with the Colorado Avalanche with a 23-6-3 mark at home this season, including a 2-1-1 mark in their first round match up against Minnesota. That said, the Avalanche has won four out of its last six trips to Nevada.
