The Colorado Avalanche enter 2024 with their first game of the year against the New York Islanders in Ball Arena. This matchup wraps up a quick two-game homestand for Colorado as they look to win their third straight.

These two played at the beginning of the season back in October on Long Island. The Avs won in a high-scoring 7-4 matchup, the sixth straight game they won to open the season. It was also the 15th-straight road game they had won in a row, an NHL record - which now feels like a fever dream.
