Home & Away Play
There’s no question that the Colorado Avalanche are better at home than on the road — a lot better. Their home record is 6-1-1. Their only regulation loss came at the hands of the St. Louis Blues. Their overtime loss came at the hands of the Ottawa Senators, though this was in Sweden.
Colorado’s away record is much more modest — 4-7-0. Their four road wins came against the New York Rangers, Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers (shootout) and Detroit Red Wings (overtime.)
The Colorado Avalanche have seen three games go into extra hockey. They won the one OT game against the Wings and lost the OT game to the Senators. Only one game went to the shootout, which was a winner for the Avs.
Here’s a random stat — since the Avs New Age began in the golden 2013-14 season, Colorado is tied for first place with two other teams with 10 shootout wins. In that time, Nathan MacKinnon is #2 for scoring 10 shootout goals for the team — I don’t think it’ll be a big surprise to find out Matt Duchene was #1 with 11 shootout goals in that time period.
