Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Saturday when the Colorado Avalanche and the Dallas Stars meet at American Airlines Center.

ABOUT THE AVALANCHE (4-1-0): Colorado’s revamped defense has shined in the early going as veteran Erik Johnson boasts a plus-8 rating and Patrik Nemeth, who was claimed off waivers from Dallas just before the season, is plus-7 with three assists. Jonathan Bernier posted the win against Anaheim while Semyon Varlamov, who missed most of last season due to injury, is 3-0-0 with a .945 save percentage in his three starts. Sven Andrighetto, who was acquired from Montreal at the trade deadline last season and collected 16 points in 19 games, notched a pair of assists on Friday to take over the team lead with six points.

ABOUT THE STARS (1-3-0): Dallas has done a decent job limiting shots in the first four games with the defense-minded Hitchcock back at the helm, giving up 26.8 per contest, but could not hold down Nashville after scoring the first goal. All-Stars Tyler Seguin (two goals, team-high 29 shots) and captain Jamie Benn (one goal, one assist) have not broken out yet while big-ticket offseason acquisition Alexander Radulov is looking for his first goal. John Klingberg leads the team with five points (two goals, three assists) while fellow defenseman Dan Hamhuis (groin) could return to the lineup after missing the last two games.

Oddsmakers opened the Stars as -179-moneyline favorites versus the Avalanche, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Dallas Stars hope to begin finishing more of their abundant chances around the net when they host the improving Colorado Avalanche on Saturday. The Stars have managed just eight goals – four on the power play – in four contests to start the season despite being among the league leaders at 37.5 shots per game after registering 31 in a 4-1 loss at Nashville on Thursday.

“I’m concerned that we’re missing a number of glorious opportunities and we’re letting the other goalie outwork us,” Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters. “We’ve got three games now where we’ve made the (opposing) goalie the first star, and we need to figure that out quick.” The Stars begin a stretch during which they play three of four at home when they host the Avalanche, who are off to a promising start after recording the fewest amount of points in the league by a large margin last season. Colorado won for the fourth time in five games to start the campaign Friday, posting a 3-1 triumph against Anaheim, and Nathan MacKinnon – who left the game with an eye injury in the first period – is expected to be ready on Saturday. Defenseman Tyson Barrie has recorded two goals and two assists after scoring on Friday for the Avalanche, who have allowed just 10 goals in five contests.

In their last action, Dallas was a 4-1 loser on the road against the Predators. Bettors on Nashville at -119 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Colorado, they were a 3-1 winner as they battled the Ducks at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Avalanche at +104 were rewarded, while the 4 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
