The Stanley Cup playoffs are right around the corner, and the Colorado Avalanche are playing like it’s training camp. What’s going on?
They needed a win last night to keep from falling to FIFTH in the Western Conference. Luckily, they pulled out a 2-1 victory over the LA Kings. Their road record, even after this terrible slump, is 20-8-7-4 while their home record is only 19-14-6-1. Maybe it’s just as well that they’ll lose home ice after the first round. And how did they manage to win a big game at home at all?
Every other team in the league wins in Denver, so the Avs figured they could, too.
