Start Strong against Dallas
In any game, the Colorado Avalanche’s game plan is to start strong so they’re not chasing the play the rest of the game. Well, that’s how the Avs need to approach this home stand. They start with Dallas, and they want to start strong.
Unfortunately, Colorado’s back-to-back luck has run out. In their previous back-to-back series, the Avs have been facing a team that’s also coming off a back-to-back. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with the Stars.
Dallas played against the Sharks in San Jose on Thursday. That means they flew to Colorado right afterward and had all of Friday to rest and reset. Meanwhile, the Avalanche were in St. Louis — they had to fly home after their game.
So, the key to the Dallas game is to start strong and put the Stars back on their heels. Like Colorado, the Stars are a team who can score a lot of goals. And, like the Avs, they’re a team that can allow a lot of goals. So, let’s get on that.
