Return to Under Normalcy

Vegas Golden Knights @ Colorado Avalanche – 9:00 p.m. ET

Tied at two apiece headed back to Denver, this series has largely lived up to expectations after the Game 1 blowout implied Colorado might run away with it. Though Game 4 in Vegas turned into an explosive affair for the home team, there’s reason to believe the defense tightens up in Game 5.

The Avs defense has allowed 39.7 shots per game over the last three contests, an anomaly considering it allowed a league-low 25.4 per game in the regular season. Philipp Grubauer has looked great outside of Game 4’s hiccup, and he should bounce back regardless of if his blueliners lock it down. 

Marc-Andre Fleury and his defense has largely been very stout this postseason, so expect them to keep it together in this pivotal game. 

Pick: Under 5.5 (-120)*

DFS Value Play: Marc-Andre Fleury ($7500)
