The Florida Panthers and the Colorado Avalanche will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Pepsi Center.

ABOUT THE PANTHERS (12-14-5): Forward Evgenii Dadonov (upper body) returned to the lineup Tuesday after a 2 1/2-week absence, well ahead of his estimated recovery timetable of four to six weeks. However, linemate Denis Malgin was knocked out of the game early in the first period after absorbing a hard hit and was termed day-to-day by coach Bob Boughner, who said there’s a chance he could be in the lineup Thursday. Goaltender James Reimer, who was dented for five goals by Colorado last week, will make his fifth consecutive start.

ABOUT THE AVALANCHE (14-14-2): Nathan MacKinnon leads the team in goals (11), assists (22) and points (33), providing the production expected from a player drafted No. 1 overall in 2013. “This is Nathan’s fifth year in the league — he’s still only 22 — but he’s taken the next step that Gabe (Landeskog) has, that EJ (Erik Johnson) has,” Sakic said. “We’ve got the guys who are leading and the other guys are following.” Rookie center Alex Kerfoot, who scored in the previous matchup versus Florida, is listed as day-to-day with a leg injury.

Oddsmakers opened the Avalanche as -115-moneyline favorites versus the Panthers, while the game’s total opened at 6.

The Colorado Avalanche erupted for a season-high goal total during their just-concluded four-game road trip and will face the team they victimized on Thursday night in the opener of a three-game homestand. Five days after rolling to a 7-3 rout of Florida in Miami, the Avalanche will take on the Panthers in a rematch at the Pepsi Center.

Despite ending the road trip with a 5-2 loss at Washington, Colorado general manager Joe Sakic was happy with the split, especially since it followed a horrendous 1-4-0 homestand. “Every team has a dip at some point,” Sakic said. “It’s how you bounce back, how you stop the losing streak, and I’ve thought we’ve done a pretty good job on this trip.” The Panthers will make the third stop on a five-game trek after getting trampled by the Avalanche, edging Detroit in overtime 2-1 before falling to Chicago 3-2 in OT. Aleksander Barkov, Florida’s third-leading scorer, sat out last week’s meeting versus Colorado, but he is riding a five-game point streak.

Last time out for Colorado, they were a 5-2 loser as they battled the Capitals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Capitals at -182 were rewarded, while the 7 combined goals moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Florida was a 3-2 loser on the road against the Blackhawks. Bettors on Chicago at -199 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
