The Colorado Avalanche play the sixth game of a seven-game home stand when they entertain the Ottawa Senators at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

A fine start to the season has somewhat masked the indifferent play of the Avalanche over the past month as Colorado ended December with a 5-9 record. Now 3-2 on their home stand after Monday’s loss to the Calgary Flames, the Avalanche still remain firmly in the post season picture in the Western Conference despite slipping to sixth overall.

Colorado areĀ 15.00 to win the Stanley Cup and the Senators can be backed at 36.00.

The Los Angeles Kings moved a point ahead of Colorado in the Western Conference after picking up a regulation point on Tuesday at the Staples Center in LA. Nino Niederreiter scored the only goal in the shootout for the visiting Minnesota Wild who secured a 2-1 victory that keeps the Wild in the mix for a playoff place.

Over in the Central Division the St. Louis Blues closed to within a couple of points of the Chicago Blackhawks with a 5-2 defeat of the Oilers at the Rexall Place in Edmonton. Chris Stewart, Maxim Lapierre, David Backes, Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrik Berglund all lit the lamp for the visitors who won for the sixth consecutive game and move on to play the Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Thursday.

Chicago meanwhile welcomes in the New York Rangers to the United Center in one of three games on the NHL slate. The defending Stanley Cup champions were edged in a shootout by the San Jose Sharks last time out and will head to Montreal to play the Canadiens over the weekend.
