After a shocking 60 minute performance on Saturday night against Edmonton the Avalanche look to create a winning streak as they host the Dallas stars Monday night. The Avalanche made the slumping Stars look silly last time around so they must protect against the Stars fighting for revenge. The fifth game of the Avs eight game home stand Colorado looks to pull to 3-2 so far with three games remaining after Monday’s tilt. To do that the Avalanche will need to maintain the urgency and intensity they played with two nights prior.
Expect the same lineup we saw in Saturday’s 5-2 victory except Giguere may get the start since he shutout the Stars in the last matchup. Can the Avalanche get ignited to get back on their feet or was Saturday just another diamond in the rough performance?
