At the quarter-season mark, the Colorado Avalanche are in good shape. They’re enjoying a winning record.
Can you believe the Colorado Avalanche have already played about a quarter of their games? Man, it seems like the offseason goes so slowly, and the season itself flies by.
The Avalanche have played 20 games as of the Anaheim Ducks match. As we know, that overtime victory constituted win number 1,000 since the team moved from Quebec.
Going into tomorrow’s game against the LA Kings, the Avalanche have a 10-6-4 record — a winning record. They’ve amassed 24 points, which is good for number four in the Central Division and the first wild card spot, for what that’s worth at this point in the season.
I’d just like to note that, at this time last season, Colorado had a 10-8-1 record for 21 points. That team had a +1 goal differential. This inception has a +12.
I love that the Avs are currently improving over last year, which was already a successful season. Well, that makes sense. The general makeup of the team is mostly the same. Last year, the Avalanche were one of the youngest teams in the NHL. This year, the kids have grown up a little.
At this quarter-season mark, with 20 games under their belt, the Colorado Avalanche are doing quite well. Let’s look into their play a little more in-depth.
