The Colorado Avalanche are back from the All-Star break, and are ready to dominate heading into the postseason, with their eyes on the illustrious Stanley Cup.
The Colorado Avalanche have the easiest remaining strength of schedule in the NHL, however it would be a mistake to think we are guaranteed a playoff spot. They must take advantage of every game, starting February 1st against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Feb 1st @ Philadelphia Flyers
This game against Philly is a must watch because we haven’t been able to see the Avalanche play in almost two whole weeks. I know I’m having my withdrawals, so I definitely can’t wait to see the boys bak on the ice. It’s always nice to see a team from the Eastern conference that we don’t play that often. The Flyers are having a strong season as they are only one point out of a playoff spot. The avalanche must be ready to play a hungry Flyers team.
Feb 11th Vs. Ottawa Senators
Matt Duchene was my favorite player until he was traded to the Senators, so regardless it will be nice to see him play. Wait, he’s on Columbus now, no, he’s on the Nashville Predators now. Crazy how well that trade turned out for the Senators. At least they have Bowen Byram…
Feb 13th Vs. Washington Capitals
Alexander Ovechkin is must see TV every time you get the opportunity. Even better, we have the opportunity to see him in person. The Capitals are flirting with the Presidents Trophy again, as they are one of the best teams in the National Hockey League. This game is not on NBC or NBCSN, but I’m sure it will be in June!
Feb 17th Vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
The Tampa Bay Lightning started off the year horrendously. They have since bounced back and have re-established themselves as one of the best teams in the league. I think the Avalanche stack up pretty well against the Lightning, as this will be a fantastic hockey game to watch. Last year’s Hart Memorial Trophy winner vs. this year’s Hart Memorial Trophy winner???
