The Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche are ready for Game 7 of this series, the one where the winner takes all. It’s the first Game 7 we’ve seen this postseason, so it’s bound to be an exciting matchup for fans. It’ll be televised on NBCSN for those that want to tune in.
It was the Dallas Stars that got off to a commanding 3-1 series lead. They scored 5 goals in each of those three wins and were scoring at will. The Avalanche, on the other hand, managed to score 6 goals in their lone victory through the first four.
The past two games have been a different story, however, The Colorado Avalanche have outscored the Dallas Stars 10-4 in the final two elimination games and hold all the momentum heading into Game 7. Prepare for a back-and-forth battle between two teams that can light it up with ease.
Can the Dallas Stars Bounce Back After Two Straight Losses?
The Dallas Stars had this series in the bag two games ago, but they’ve stumbled to say the least. It hasn’t been an ideal last two games for this team, but they have one more game to prove they’re the better team. It won’t be easy.
What concerns me about the Stars was their last game. They only found the back of the net once, despite scoring 22 goals the previous five games. They need to get back to their offensive ways because the Avalanche clearly aren’t going to.
Will the Colorado Avalanche Complete the Comeback From Down 3-1?
What a performance it has been from the Colorado Avalanche the past two games. It’s unlikely for a team to come back all the way from 3-1 down in a series, but that’s the opportunity they have in front of them on Friday. It’ll be a game for the ages.
In their three wins, the Avalanche have scored 16 goals. In two of those games, they finished with 6 goals each. They’ve even found the back of the net 9 times during their losses, so that hasn’t been an issue. We’ll see if the goaltending remains hot for one more game here.

What’s Our Pick?
The Colorado Avalanche have turned it up a notch after a disappointing start to this series. It’s hard to do what they’re doing, but they’ve made the past two games look easy. It’s going to be hard for sports fans to bet against this team on Friday night.
With the momentum they’ve built and the way they’ve been consistent on offense, I think the Avalanche are going to complete their comeback and defeat the Dallas Stars on Friday. I think both teams will find the back of the net often, but it’ll be Colorado with the last laugh.
Final Score 5-4, Colorado Avalanche.
