It’s a Colorado Avalanche game day!

The road trip goes on, this time with the Colorado Avalanche visiting sunny South Florida. Saturday night sees them match up with yet another tough Eastern Conference opponent, the Florida Panthers.

Perhaps a little sunshine will warm up the Avalanche both off and on the ice. They need any sort of turnaround, and a big game against last season’s Eastern Conference Champions could do just that.
