Avs look to exorcise demons vs. Preds

Just as the Colorado Avalanche are back on a roll, they'll face their toughest rival of recent years when they visit the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Colorado is just 3-15-1 against the Predators since April 2016, including a six-game loss to Nashville in the first round of last season's Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Avalanche did earn a 3-2 victory in their previous visit to Nashville on Nov. 27, but the Predators won the other two meetings between the two clubs this season.

The Avalanche will also be coming into Nashville on short rest after playing in Chicago on Friday night, though Colorado will at least have the momentum of a 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.
