If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Tuesday when the Colorado Avalanche and the Nashville Predators meet at Bridgestone Arena.

ABOUT THE AVALANCHE (4-2-0): Rookie Tyson Jost practiced Monday wearing a normal jersey, meaning he could return Tuesday after missing two games because of a knee injury. Defenseman Tyson Barrie, who slumped to seven goals and a minus-34 rating last season, has recorded two tallies – both game-winners – three assists and a plus-1 this campaign. Nathan MacKinnon (four assists this season) played Saturday – a day after leaving a 3-1 victory over Anaheim in the first period, when he took an errant stick in the eye.

ABOUT THE PREDATORS (2-2-1): Nashville has been thin defensively as Ryan Ellis (knee) probably is out until around Christmas while Yannick Weber and Roman Josi have not been in the lineup. Josi practiced Monday after missing the last three games with a lower-body injury while Weber (upper body) did not play against Chicago or participate in Monday’s practice. Filip Forsberg is off to a fast start with a team-leading five goals while Scott Hartnell has recorded three in his first season back with the Predators after spending the first six years of his career with them but is a minus-4.

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

The Nashville Predators are starting to show glimpses of the club that reached the 2017 Stanley Cup Final as they try for their seventh straight victory over the visiting Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday. Nashville has recovered from an 0-2-0 start by going 2-0-1 in its last three games following Saturday’s 2-1 overtime loss at Chicago on Saturday.

“Certainly trending in the right direction,” the Predators’ Colton Sissons told reporters. “A lot of work to do, but we’re definitely feeling better about ourselves and we can continue to build off the way we did (Saturday).” Colorado is coming off a 3-1 loss at Dallas on Saturday in which a lackluster first two periods left it trailing 2-0. “It’s a good learning lesson for this group,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar told reporters. “It’s a different group than last year, but now it is the first time we’ve realized that we didn’t leave it all on the line for 60 minutes, and that’s something we need to do every night.” Matt Duchene, who wants to be traded, is improving his value with a renewed work ethic and by sharing the team lead in goals (three) with Sven Andrighetto and Nail Yakupov, and points (six) with Andrighetto while posting a plus-5 rating.

The Predators were a 2-1 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Blackhawks. That made winners of bettors who got Chicago at -138 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Last time out for Colorado, they were a 3-1 loser as they battled the Stars on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Stars at -201 were rewarded, while the 4 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
