The Avalanche are in LaLa land tonight. With a win, the Avalanche would move to 8th spot in the West. The Kings have some motivation as well: if they lose in regulation and San Jose wins, the Kings will drop from 3rd to 10th.
From the Weird Schedule Department: the Avs tonight become the first team to play 41 games this year. The Sharks are playing in their 35th game earlier this evening.
