Colorado Can Eliminate Edmonton Tonight

The Colorado Avalanche won Game 3 on the road, and honestly, the series feels over. After three wins, their number has dropped to 1.02. Edmonton, meanwhile, is currently at 19.00.

After a 4-2 win where Colorado survived losing Nazem Kadri, the Avalanche kept playing the significant points of the game far better than Edmonton. Part of it is the balance and the depth, but it is how Devon Toews and Cale Makar have helped turn defense into offense.

Like St. Louis, the Oilers are getting their scoring chances. High-danger chances at even strength were 14-3 (but just 3-1 in the third period). Colorado clamped down on the most wide-open opportunities over the third period's final 10 to 15 minutes. 

The scene figures to be one of apprehension for Edmonton fans and sports betting tonight. 

How does one approach this? Does the sense of urgency outweigh Evander Kane's absence tonight? Yes, Kadri is out for the series for Colorado. 

The Oilers have to convert on their opportunities. If they cannot, then this could spell curtains for them.

Tampa Bay and New York Head To The Sunshine State

The New York Rangers were up 2-0 again in Game 3 on Sunday afternoon. Then, the Lightning finally drew a few man-advantage opportunities of their own. 

Tampa Bay then scored twice on their power plays. The goals were from Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos. The third period felt like waiting for the inevitable third Tampa Bay goal.

That third goal came with mere seconds left in regulation. Ondrej Palat cashed in on a wide-open chance beating Igor Shesterkin on the 52nd shot of the afternoon. What had been an exercise in frustration for Tampa turned into instant elation. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 28 saves for Tampa Bay while Shesterkin turned aside 49. 

Tampa Bay enjoyed the advantage in chances and possession. Also, the Lightning fired 14 high-danger scoring chances. The Lightning dominated the third period. It may be the tip of the iceberg as the Rangers gave a Tampa team life. 

What happens next? It seems to be in Game 3 as New York became easy to play. If that continues, Tampa Bay will likely win Game 4 as well. Series numbers shifted again. It’s not above three anymore.
