“37 Stitches”–Drowning Pool. Here we go heading down the home stretch only two games remaining and the battered, bruised, beaten, and broken Avs soon enough will be able to rest and look toward next season. Before they can relax the boys have the second half of the Texas two step back to back games with our old foe the Dallas Stars. The Avalanche must win their final two games to eclipse the point total they put up in their abysmal 2008-2009 campaign or else they will officially put up the worst season in franchise history. Of course they won’t walk away empty handed as they will have a top 3 pick in this coming June’s NHL Draft.
This is the 4th meeting between the clubs– Colorado holds a 2-1 series lead.
11/6 Dallas 0 Colorado 5
11/20 Colorado 4 Dallas 3 (SO)
4/7 Colorado 2 Dallas 4
