Avs Looking To End Curse Of The "Blueberries"

The Avalanche unveiled their third jerseys in the 2009-10 season and they were almost instantly named the “Blueberries”. Although often criticized for being quite the jinx these jerseys are quite the sellers, I myself own a Duchene, and since our home/away jerseys aren’t much to look at I welcome the 3rds. Unfortunately the jinx of the Blueberries lives in the numbers.

2009-10: 3-7-2, 8 of 24 possible points

2010-11: 3-6-3, 9 of 24 possible points

2011-12 3rd Jersey Schedule:

  • October 28th vs Edmonton
  • November 2nd vs Phoenix
  • November 23rd vs Vancouver
  • December 2nd vs St. Louis
  • December 13th vs San Jose
  • December 27th vs Winnipeg
  • January 18th vs Florida
  • February 2nd vs Minnesota
  • February 27th vs Anaheim
  • March 10th vs Edmonton
  • March 20th vs Calgary
  • April 5th vs Columbus

The Avalanche have posted awfully similar and just plain awful records with the 3rds over their first two years wearing them. Hopefully this year they turn it around.
