Vegas vs Colorado: will the Avalanche keep their winning streak?
Vegas Golden Knights
Vegas didn't demonstrate their best game in the opening matches of the quarterfinals. In the opening game, the team was defeated with a crushing score of 1:7. Goalie Lehner wasn't reliable and stopped only 81% of the shots. But the score was not entirely his fault: the poor defense of the Golden Knights allowed the opponent to create too many dangerous chances.
In the return game against the Avalanche, the Knights played much more confidently but still did not have what it takes to win. They ended up losing in overtime (2:3 OT). Vegas were a bit unlucky with their chances: there were plenty, but the Knights couldn't use them.
Before the start of the playoffs, Colorado developed a winning streak of five games, and that streak hasn't been interrupted yet. Now the team has 11 victories in a row, and almost all of them were scored in regulation time. In the first round of the Stanley Cup, the Avalanche left no chance of victory for St. Louis, winning four straight games.
In the quarterfinals, the Avalanche were matched against Vegas, and they opened the series with a landslide victory over the Knights (7:1). The best player was defender Makar, who gave three assists and also scored a goal himself. In the second game, Colorado earned another win, but with a more modest score (3: 2 OT).
In just one head-to-head game out of six, the teams didn't score in each period.
In two head-to-head games in a row, Colorado opened the scoring.
Colorado continue their winning streak and so far no one can stop the Avalanche. They approached the playoffs in excellent form and now have every chance to win the main trophy.

It is not worth waiting for many goals in this game, most likely, the teams will not risk playing openly. And in the head-to-head we haven't often seen high-scoring results, so we see it as an opportunity to bet on total under five goals.
Second prediction - total under 5.5 goals
