Gabriel Landeskog scored in the first period. Gabriel Landeskog has been solid this year with 13 total points. Nathan MacKinnon had a very offensively productive game with 1 goals and 1 assists.

We have Semyon Varlamov penciled in as the confirmed starter for the Colorado Avalanche. His team gave him a small workload in his last game, allowing 5 goals on 18 shots. In Semyon Varlamov's last 3 appearances, he has posted a 0.881 save percentage.
John Gibson will try to be a brick wall in net for the Anaheim Ducks. His team gave him a large workload in his last game, allowing 0 goals on 34 shots. When playing away from home last season he posted a 0-5-0 record with a 0.904 save percentage.
It would help if the defenseman of the Colorado Avalanche would move the puck up the ice more efficiently as they allow 28 shots per game. The Colorado Avalanche are 5-13-1 when playing at home this season. The Anaheim Ducks have been so-so when playing on the road with a 8-8-6 record.
