The Toronto Maple Leafs are looking for their sixth straight win after beating the Phoenix Coyotes 4-2 in Glendale last night. To do it, they’ll have to overcome the rolling Colorado Avalanche.
The Avs have won four straight games and eight of their last 10. Those wins are against some pretty tough Western Conference teams like the Chicago Blackhawks, San Jose Sharks and Minnesota Wild. Led by young stars Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan O’Reilly and Nathan MacKinnon, the Avs are a tough out for anybody.
