The 2022 Stanley Cup champions are on the brink of being sent home from this season’s playoffs. Trailing the Dallas Stars 3-1 in the series, they face a must-win situation tonight on the road for Game 5 of the second round in their Western Conference series.

Failure to secure a victory would result in their elimination from the playoffs. After losing the first two games of this season’s playoffs, the Dallas Stars have rebounded impressively with a record of 7-2.

Colorado Avalanche vs. Dallas Stars

Wednesday, May 15, 2024 – 08:00 PM ET at American Airlines Center

Overtime Possible in Dallas

The first game of this series went to overtime and we have yet to see another in the next three games. With it being all on the line tonight and for the rest of the series, we believe tonight’s game has a good chance of going into overtime.

Both these teams are as strong as each other, the Avalanche just haven’t proved it yet. Colorado has only scored twice in the previous two games, so tonight, we expect them to come out swinging.

We were pleasantly surprised to see we could get odds as high as +350 for the tie tonight, we would happily bet this down to around +300.

In Stanley Cup futures, we look at the odds for teams as top contenders vie for hockey glory.

The Pick

Two of the previous three games between these teams in Dallas went to overtime, lets hope tonight’s decider goes right to the wire.
