It's a hard time to be an Avalanche fan these days. With a five game homestand ending without the Avs picking up a point, the Avs suddenly find themselves with the worst record in the NHL, and the bad news doesn't stop there. Erik Johnson, one of the few bright spots the Avs have had this season is now out 6-8 weeks with a broken fibula. After the season started with a see-saw of inconsistent play, the Avs have spiraled down a toilet of listless play. The worst thing of all, there doesn't seem to be any signs of improvement coming.
Tuesday night the Avs will kick off a four-game trip starting in Nashville. The Predators have been two different teams at home and away. Last month the Predators came to Denver twice and notched two of the three away wins they have on the season. At home, however, the Predators are a fantastic squad, with an 8-2-2 record. We'll see how they fair against the worse team in the NHL on Tuesday.
- Avs lead scorer Nathan MacKinnon, isn't even among the top 100 scorers in the NHL.
- The Avs most recent addition in the revolving call-ups is recently acquired Cody Goloubef.
- After this most recent homestand, the Avs have by far the worse home record in the NHL.
Game time: 6pm MT
