The Colorado Avalanche completed their season-high, seven-game road trip with a 4-3-0 record.

At the time of writing, the Colorado Avalanche players are literally en route back home after a monster two-week road trip that encompassed seven games. Counting the trip home, they crossed the Canadian border four times.

The results of the road trip, 4-3-0 or eight points, weren’t as good as we all hoped but maybe a bit better than we expected. (Personally, I was hoping for at least nine points, as head coach Patrick Roy recently remarked he looks for in any seven-game stretch.)

This roadie was an eventful one, and I feel we learned a lot about the team and even about ourselves as a fan base. So, let’s see what lessons we can take from a roadie that matched the longest in franchise history.
