Nashville (28-22-9) has beaten Colorado (16-39-3) four times this season and will look for a season sweep on Thursday evening. The Preds are 11-3-1 in their last 15 home games versus the Avalanche, and in their recent string of five-straight victories over them (dating back to last season), Nashville has averaged 4.2 goals per game.
