Game Day Song: Blackhawks @ Avalanche


The Avalanche are finally getting a home game after five straight on the road, in which they came away with five victories. Tonight is a good challenge for the streaking Avs to see if they may be the real deal as the Chicago Blackhawks come to town for the first of a home and home with the Avalanche. Today’s Game Day Song comes from the new album of Five Finger Death Punch, whose lead singer is a Denver native. Saturday’s GDS will come from on of the many great bands from Chicago.

Last season the Avalanche and Chicago played each other four times and the results were:

  • 10/07/10: Chicago 3 Colorado 4 (OT)
  • 12/13/10: Chicago 5 Colorado 7
  • 12/15/10: Colorado 4 Chicago 3
  • 01/12/11: Colorado 0 Chicago 4
The Avalanche swept the Blackhawks last season in a home and home in which the first game was played in Colorado. In four games against the Blackhawks last year Matt Duchene posted 3 goals and 4 assist for 7 points.
