The Pens will face another big challenge when they play the Avalanche in Denver. The Avs have a few things going for them:
- They're undefeated at home (5-0)
- They're pretty loaded offensively with Sakic, Stastny, Smyth, Brunette, Svatos, Wolski, and Arnason.
- Their special teams at home are good (power play 6-25, penalty kill 19-23)
- Did I mention they're undefeated at home?
The Pens need to continue their good play from the other night in Minnesota. If the Avs have a weakness, it's on their blue line. Only two defensemen have a goal, and the one with the most most minutes (Hannan) is a -7.
Avalanche blog - check out Jerseys and Hockey Love. The review of the game against the Wild is secondary to the paragraph about the sadness of watching the Rockies lose in the World Series. Feels like 1992 all over again.
Let's Go Pens!
