The Colorado Avalanche will hopefully be watching video and working on drills in practice to improve some of the problems that cost them games in Sweden.
The Colorado Avalanche have returned to Denver after their European trip. In fact, Colorado played four road games in two weeks and went 1-2-1. That’s not great, but considering one of those games saw a key player get traded mid-shift, you almost want to call the roadie 1-1-1.
In any case, the Avalanche did not play their very best hockey during the Global Series games in Sweden. They have three days before playing again, this time against the Washington Capitals. Yesterday was surely a rest day since they likely got back in the wee hours. Hopefully today and the next two days will be spent both on and off the ice improving what sent them astray during their overtime and regulation losses, especially in Sweden.
A slight infusion of fresh blood isn’t going to be enough to get the Avalanche back on the right track, though. Here are three areas I hope they’re working on for the next three days.
