Calvin Pickard defending the post for the Avalanche Friday

The Colorado Avalanche are starting Calvin Pickard in goal on Friday as they face the St. Louis Blues.

What It Means:

Pickard has been in a miserable slide the past two weeks, losing all five of his starts. He owns a .864 save percentage with a 3.86 goals-against average since March 18. For the season, he's leading the NHL in losses while recording a 13-28-2 record.

numberFire's models project Pickard for 2.7 goals allowed, 26.5 saves and a 31.0 percent chance of earning the win. He's our third-worst fantasy goalie available on tonight's seven-game slate.
