The Avs' Upcoming Week at a Glance

More of this is needed. K, thnx. Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

There won't be anything secret or surprising about this post. After two straight losses, the Avs are in trouble. They most likely will need to win at least 4 of their last 5 to even have a shot. On the flip side, if they don't start winning they could be eliminated from playoff contention as early as Friday night.

Obviously, the Avalanche have 3 huge road games this week against San Jose, Vancouver and Calgary, teams the Avs are collectively 2-8-3 against this year. Oh, and there a bunch of games between playoff chasers this week which is also a bad thing. The teams on the list below will have at least 8 more points - and perhaps as many as 12 - when the week is over. Basically, the Avs need to win and hope for help.
