Tonight, the Colorado Avalanche travel to play the Chicago Blackhawks after a lackluster home loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs
Back in November, I wrote an article on the first meeting between the Chicago Blackhawks and Colorado Avalanche, mostly highlighting the dysfunction of the Avalanche and which players the ‘Hawks should be aware of.
A couple months later, here I am again telling you the Avs are coming off a bad loss at home and will struggle mightily to beat the Blackhawks.
The ’Hawks are going into a Christmas break with the top record in the West, a surprise to many considering Corey Crawford has been out with an injury. Marian Hossa and Artem Anisimov are getting some early R&R after carrying the team for the first part of the season, but the ’Hawks shouldn’t have any problems tonight with their absences.
