Last season the Avalanche didn't fare well against the Wild, only winning one game out of five contests. If that wasn't bad enough, they were shutout in three games, and only scoring four goals in five games.
The Avalanche will need to start this season at a much better pace than they did last season, their record heading into November was atrocious. Here's hoping that the Colorado Avalanche from two seasons ago show up tonight!
Blake Comeau—Matt Duchene—Jarome Iginla
Gabriel Landeskog—Nathan MacKinnon—Alex Tanguay
Mikko Rantanen—Carl Soderberg—Borna Rendulic

Francois Beauchemin—Erik Johnson
Nate Guenin—Tyson Barrie
Nikita Zadorov—Nick Holden

The Colorado Avalanche have been struggling during the preseason, preseason doesn't matter. Tonight, and the next 81 games after that matter.
Colorado (0-0-0), Minnesota (0-0-0)
