Avalanche try to keep alive playoff hopes

Apr 7, 2007 - 5:41 PM Nashville (50-23-8) at Colorado (43-30-7) 9:00 pm EDT

DENVER (Ticker) -- Trying to keep alive their playoff hopes, the Colorado Avalanche host the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

Looking to avoid missing the playoffs for the first time since 1994 when they were known as the Quebec Nordiques, the Avalanche trail Calgary (43-27-10) by three points for the Western Conference's final playoff spot.

Colorado hosts Calgary on Sunday night. But before then, Calgary hosts Edmonton on Saturday, needing a point to eliminate Colorado.

The Predators snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over St. Louis on Thursday. A victory over Colorado will lock up the fourth spot in the Western Conference and home-ice advantage in the first round for Nashville.

The Avalanche have won two of three over Nashville this season.
