Can't hurt, right?
At 8 eastern, the Kings square off against Minnesota. 3 more points by the Kings and Colorado will not be able to catch them.
At 9pm, Phoenix plays against Anaheim. 4 more points by Phoenix and Colorado will not be able to catch them.
At 10pm. Calgary plays Vancouver. I believe Calgary needs at least a point to stay alive.
At 10:30, Dallas goes up against San Jose. 3 more points by Dallas and Colorado will not be able to catch them. 5 more points by San Jose and Colorado will not be able to catch them.
With these latest permutations, Avalanche fans should be focused on rooting against Phoenix and San Jose. Wins be either (or both) of those teams tonight would be disastrous.
