It won’t be easy given the Avalanche are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games and their .690 winning percentage is good enough for top spot in the Western Conference. Stay tuned for the pre-game report to get all the latest. Puck drop is at 8 PM and following the final buzzer we want you to join the conversation on the Illegal Curve Post-Game Show.
