The Colorado Avalanche return home to Ball Arena for one final game in the calendar year of 2023. The team looks to end the year on a high facing off against the struggling San Jose Sharks.

The Avs have not had much success in recent New Year’s Eve games, their last one being a blowout at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs last season. However, these two teams faced off a couple of weeks ago and the Avs handily won over the Sharks in a 6-2 win. They’ll be looking to repeat their effort.
