Can Home Ice Help The Colorado Avalanche Turn Around The Playoffs?

The Nashville Predators received a big send-off Sunday from fans as they made their way to Denver, Colorado.

Game 3 is at Colorado on Monday. Subban had two assists for the Predators and was one of three Nashville players to record two points in the contest. It's probably safe to say he won't keep up this level of production going forward, but regardless he's helped the Predators get off to a very strong start in the postseason.

"They've got a lot of young skill over there that can make you pay", Johansen said.

The victor of the best-of-seven series will move on to the next round of the National Hockey League playoffs and get one step closer to a chance at the Stanley Cup.

Austin Watson gave the Predators a 4-2 lead at 7:16 of the third period on a wrist shot.

Gabriel Landeskog pulled Colorado back to within a goal scoring on the advantage and making the score 4-3.

"It shows us we're right there with them", Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. "There's no quit in them".

Bourque put Colorado up 1-0 on the Avs' first shot 2:34 into the game after a turnover in the defensive zone by Hartman.

Kevin Fiala returned the favor at 1:01 of the second period on the power play and the game was tied at 1-1. The goal was being announced when Comeau got a stick on Carl Soderberg's shot from the point to give Colorado a 2-1 lead at 4:51. "I got this lovely towel, catfish in the cooler, let's do this!" Jonathan Bernier made 28 for Colorado.

"We're in a tough spot right now", MacKinnon said. The Presidents' Trophy winners started slowly, giving up a goal on Colorado's first shot for a second straight game. "Two games at home". The team's an impressive 25-15 in games decided by one goal, while Colorado is 11-16 in such games.

Rinne's save on MacKinnon 9:48 into the second period.

"We handed them a couple of goals tonight".

"It was just one of those that come us up I guess when you skate, and it worked", Forsberg said. I think we've played well and we've had our chances, we just need to be a little better defensively.

The Avalanche scratched rookie defenseman Samuel Girard with an upper-body injury and replaced him with Duncan Siemens after coming into the series with defenseman Erik Johnson already missing with a knee injury. "You guys have all seen what he's done for us". The only concern is that Pekka Rinne has looked shaky at times in this series, but even then that has been nothing too egregious. Colton Sissons and Forsberg each scored twice, and backup goaltender Juuse Saros stopped 33 shots. He carried that play over into the postseason and Nashville is loving it.

That awesome move by Filip Forsberg had Twitter BUZZING!
