Two of the top teams in the NHL will meet up Sunday night when the Florida Panthers visit the Colorado Avalanche.

Sure, the Panthers are atop the NHL standings and the Avs are outside of the top 10 — but Colorado is still the odds-on favorite (+600 per FanDuel) to win the Stanley Cup.

While Colorado did not get off to the start it had hoped at 4-5-1, the Avs have certainly turned things around.

The Avs come into Sunday night’s game against the Panthers winners of their past three games — scoring seven goals in each of them for the first time in franchise history.

The Panthers are now 4-3-4 away from Sunrise.

They’ll have a tough test in front of them on Sunday night.

Colorado has won its past six home games and has now moved into a playoff spot in the Central Division.

Florida will have Sergei Bobrovsky back in the net after his win on Friday.

But the team will be down three forwards — and will dress seven defenseman per coach Andrew Brunette.

Sasha Barkov and Maxim Mamin did not practice on Saturday at the University of Denver; Anthony Duclair did. But the three will not play on Sunday.
