The Avs had a six-game winning streak snapped against a Penguins team that was very far from complete, damaging the outside shot they have to catch the Blues. Home ice in the first round still looks likely, though.
03/31/201467
In one week the Avs stormed back and regained the home-ice edge over the Blackhawks in their sure-fire first-round battle. Now fingers are crossed on Matt Duchene's MRI.

A tough week for the Avs saw them relinquish control in the home-ice race for a likely first-round battle with Chicago. The backup goalies weren't exactly getting the job done.

Raise your hand if you said the Avalanche would be ahead of the Blackhawks on St. Patrick's Day. Liars. They've won seven of nine including two over Chicago.

Dear voters: Just give Nathan MacKinnon the Calder now, same for Patrick Roy and the Jack Adams. Four wins in five games more proof we're not going away. Signed, the Avs.

The Avalanche just keep rolling along, and right now their offense is really rolling. In the three games since the break, the Avs have 14 goals to their credit.
02/09/201487
Despite a couple of rough outings in Manhattan and Philly, the Avs hit the break with wins in six of 10 and remain within sight of the Central Division leaders.
02/03/201478
Apparently the Avalanche have missed the memo that they were supposed to fall back this season. It helps that Nathan MacKinnon is only getting better with 20 goals, 20 assists already.
01/27/201486
The Avalanche seem locked in to that third spot in the Central -- six back of second -- seven ahead of fourth, even after two 5-2 losses this past week (and one win).
01/20/201467
Remember when it looked the Avs fell out of the Central Division race? They have won four in a row and are only eight points back of Chicago with three games in hand.

Has any team had a stronger opening statement than the Avs? Given the opening-night fireworks, I think not. Two comfortable home wins.
