Game 55: Avalanche @ Sabres

New, comments

After dropping yet another road game, the Avalanche (15-37-2) head to Buffalo to meet up with the Sabres (24-23-10).

It seems the Avs have taken their home woes to the road with them. Tuesday night's loss marked the tenth straight road loss for the Avalanche. Jeremy Smith put on a spectacular showing in his NHL debut, but the Avs lacked the offense to deliver him a victory.

Thursday night, the Avs kick off the first of a back-to-back to finish off the road trip. We'll see if the Avs can secure their first road victory of 2017 against Ryan O'Reilly and the Buffalo Sabres.
