The Avalanche may yet be alive. The offense exploded for five goals against Winnipeg Saturday; the most goals they've scored since opening night as the Avs cruised to their first home regulation win since November 15th. As a reward for the win, the Avs and their fans immediately get to be reminded of the worst loss in Avalanche history as the team that handed them the 10-1 beating back in December, the Montreal Canadiens comes to town. We'll see if the Avs can piece it together again and find their third set of consecutive victories on the season.
- Matt Nieto's empty net goal Saturday was just the second empty netter for the Avs this season.
- Carl Soderberg's 3rd period goal gave the Avs their first two-goal lead at home since November 15th.
- In honor of the Hartford Whalers attempted return to the NHL, the next great option for Avalanche goal song...
Game time: 7pm MT
