Nazem Kadri scored the only shootout goal that helped Colorado avoid the turmoil by defeating Arizona in Denver. According to several sportsbooks, Avalanche has been the biggest favorite of NHL games in almost 20 years, ending around minus 700.

Andre Brakovsky scored goals and assists, Mikko Rantanen and Tyson Jost also scored, and Devon Taves gave Avalanche two assists to his 13th straight home win. The team will play again in Arizona on Saturday night.

Sergei Bobrovsky made 29 saves and improved his record to 18-3-3. The Panthers have the NHL’s best home record at 20-3-0, scoring at least four goals in 19 of those 23 games.

Jonathan Yuberdeau, who led the Panthers with 51 points and was nominated for the second All-Star team this week, added three assists. Roope Hintz scored in Dallas’ third period, ruining Bobrovsky’s first shutout attempt.
