The Avalanche are in sixth place in the Western Conference, only four points behind the Northwest-leading Calgary Flames but also just two points ahead of the Edmonton Oilers for the eighth and final spot. Colorado plays just one team in playoff contention on this homestand – San Jose – while also hosting St. Louis, Minnesota and Phoenix.
Colorado failed to gain a point for the first time in six games with Friday’s 6-3 loss at Calgary, but more importantly, missed an opportunity to join the Flames atop the Northwest Division.
The Blackhawks on the other side are really just going through the motions and wishing they were playing in the Wissahickon Spring League.
