The Colorado Avalanche have been patiently waiting to see when their second round is going to start. After sweeping the Nashville Predators with four consecutive victories, they have not played a hockey game since May 9.

So far, you will find every game nationally televised on TNT, but they have not determined if it will continue that way and what time puck drop will be at for games five to seven, just in case they don’t even need to happen — and they might not.
With seven solid nights of rest, Colorado will be fully healed and ready to take on the Blues to determine who will come out of the Central. See you on Tuesday.
