Avalanche roll into Vancouver as Western Conference cellar dwellers
Simply put – it’s been a rough year for Colorado. Opening the lockout shortened season with seven losses in eleven games didn’t help but things have gotten worse as the Avalanche have now lost 13 of their past 17 contests. This is a tough spot for Colorado as they lost 4-3 to the hapless Calgary Flames last night and then they had to hop a flight and travel to Vancouver.
