Game 54 Preview: Avalanche @ Devils

New, comments

After a tough weekend in NYC, the Avalanche (15-36-2) make their way Jersey way to take on the Devils (23-22-10).

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

A three game losing streak is nothing new to the Avalanche this season. With a lackluster showing in a back-to-back in New York City, the Avs have turned a small bit of optimism after a two-game winning streak full of goals back to the usual dismal offense-less three game losing streak. The Avs get a Valentine's day match-up with the Devils this season. Which team will show up? The offensive team we love or the puck smacking team we hate that we love.
