Just ten days ago, the Boston Bruins came to Ball Arena and took Colorado to overtime before falling 4-3. Tonight the Avalanche head to their barn looking to complete the season sweep.

Coming off a comeback victory over the Ottawa Senators that saw depth forwards step up and contribute offense in a big way, the Avalanche need to find a way to keep pucks out of their own net so they can continue to outscore their goaltending problems. Colorado will need to defend well and play their recently dominant puck possession game to limit Boston’s scoring chances and pepper the B’s net with shots.
