November 29th – Colorado Avalanche

The first big division rival game is a back-to-back set against Colorado.  The Avalanche already look solid after taking on the Flames this week. Calgary and Colorado refined the rivalry that was effectively stoked in last year’s Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Avalanche have one of the potent first lines in the league with Landeskog, MacKinnon, and newly extended Mikko Rantanen.

That line alone should be enough to tune in when the Av’s come to town the last Friday in November.  However, some new faces are just as intriguing.

A potential front runner for the Calder, defenseman Cale Makar will look to make a big impact in his first full season with the team.

The 2nd-round pick of the Avalanche in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, Conor Timmins, made his debut on the blueline this year after battling a concussion. He is another highly touted player in the league that will be interesting to see develop.

Also, Colorado has a killer power-play.  Hopefully, we won’t see them much when they meet the ‘Hawks, however, it’s some great hockey.
