The Avs are 1-3-2 to start December. Every now and again it looks like they're close to turning the corner and they falter. This is what happens when your team save percentage drops from .919 to .906 in one season.
12/09/20142323
Frequent injuries to Semyon Varlamov hasn't helped, but the Avs really are struggling to keep pucks out of their net. They've given up 14 goals over their past three games.
12/02/20142325
Things may be starting to turn a little bit for the Avs, but their 44.7 percent Corsi at even strength is not the recipe for building a successful season.
11/25/20142527
The Avs may be gradually improving, but it's still hard to view them getting back into the playoff discussion this year. That minus-14 goal differential sure sticks out.
11/18/20142729
Picking up wins in three of their last five is at least giving the appearance that the Avs are finding a way to stop the bleeding, but they'll have to take advantage of a favorable schedule this week to prove it fully.
11/11/20142928
Every once in a while, you'll see a flash of whatever this team had last year. It never lasts. Don't expect the Avs to be this bad the rest of the year, but don't expect great things, either.
11/04/20142827
We keep waiting for Colorado to turn the corner and they just haven't. It's early still, but their possession numbers (42.1 Corsi for percentage) are just disastrous right now.
10/28/20142725
The Avs probably won't be as bad as they have been to start the season in the long term, but they have been bad, and the OT loss to Winnipeg was just another humbling reminder.
10/21/20142522
It's been a nightmare start to the year for Colorado at 1-4-1. The bad possession numbers from a season ago persist without the high shooting and save percentages to bail them out.
10/14/2014225
Earning a last-second win over the reeling Boston Bruins was a pretty sound way to break a long scoreless drought. The possession concerns that followed the Avs heading into the season appear warranted, though.
