Two games, six goals for, eight goals against.

The Avalanche walked away from their two game series against the Ottawa Senators in Sweden with matching 4-3 losses (one in regulation, the other in overtime), but certainly look like they had a lot of fun in the process:

Now that they’re back home, the Avalanche get a few nights off to shake off the jet lag before they head back to work, facing off against the Washington Capitals this coming Thursday.

Hopefully, they’ll be able to take home a win, stopping their three-game winless streak. For now, though, they can reminisce about a trip that looked like a hell of a lot of fun.

It’s also time to take a look at how the San Antonio Rampage have been playing.

With a 9-3-1-0 record so far this year, the Avalanche AHL affiliate sit second in the Pacific Division - behind only the Tucson Roadrunners, who lead the division with a .818 points percentage through 11 games of their own.
