Knights have momentum

The Golden Knights have all the momentum of this series towards Game 6. Vegas have won three straight games against Colorado after losing the series’ first two games, including a 3-2 OT win on Tuesday. Mark Stone was the hero of Game 5, only 50 seconds in the extra frame when he defeated Philipp Grubauer in a breakaway group.

Vegas continues to get big productions from its top strikers, which cannot be said for Colorado. Jonathan Marchessault has five goals and two assists in a five-game points streak while Linemate William Karlsson has one goal and four assists in his last three games.

Vegas goalkeeper Marc-Andre Fleury proves why he received a nomination for the Vezina Trophy with his excellent goalkeeping game against the Avalanche. The “flower” has blocked 45 of 48 shots in consecutive victories and has a save percentage of 0.925 this postseason. Fleury recovered well in Game 5 after allowing Brandon Saad a soft goal at the end of the first period.

Avs Choke Away game 5

If the Avalanche had played a more responsible game on Tuesday night, we’d probably be talking about how they could eliminate Vegas in game 6. Jared Bednar’s team took a 2-0 lead in Game 6, but some costly ball losses resulted in Vegas clawing their way back. Before Tuesday, Colorado were 34-1-1 ahead after two regular season and playoff periods.

Colorado arguably outperformed Vegas in game 5, controlling most of the game, and beating them 30-25. Not to mention, Natural Stat Trick logged the highly dangerous changes 12-6 in favor of Colorado at 5v5. This was the kind of bounce the Avalanche needed after being played for eight periods prior to Game 5.

Bednar also made some promising line-up moves that should exude confidence for Game 6. Logan O’Connor made his playoff debut on Tuesday and brought great energy while Alex Newhook was reinstated and impressed with a great assist. Saad has also been pushed to the top and is red-hot with seven goals in eight games.

Will the best Avs players show up?

Anyone who believes in the talent of Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Cale Makar should bet on Game 7 in Colorado. The best players in the Avs have to show up for this series and will go to great lengths on Thursday in the T-Mobile Arena.

Mackinnon and Landeskog have each received only one template in the last four games, while Makar has no points and is minus 3 for consecutive defeats.

There is no doubt about the Avalanche’s talent, as they won the Presidents’ Trophy for good reason. The problem is Fleury’s line setup and goalkeeping. Mark Stone’s line did an excellent job neutralizing the MacKinnon line. Bednar got the trio out against Marchassault’s line on Tuesday, but Pete DeBoer will have the matchup advantage in Game 6.

Game 6 Best Bet

While Vegas is tough to bet against in the T-Mobile arena, it’s very rare for the Avalanche to be available as a plus-money underdog. Aside from the brutal ball losses, their game 5 performance was promising considering how lifeless they appeared over the past couple of games. This is a series that was always intended for seven games.

MacKinnon is neutralized, but Colorado has other weapons that can reinforce if the superstar doesn’t find his game. This Avalanche team won two straight games against Dallas in the second round last year with their backs to the wall. Colorado showed enough positives in Game 5 to make it a good value bet to extend the streak with a win in Game 6 in Vegas.

Pick: Avalanche ML (+120)
