With the off-season departure of center Ryan O’Reilly, questions swirled as to how the team would lift themselves out of the Central Division cellar. The puzzle pieces have fallen into place, and the 2015 Avalanche will feature a new look and new hope for a return to the postseason. With the additions of Carl Soderberg, Mikhail Grigerenko and Blake Comeau on offense, Colorado could just fly high in this year’s Central Division.

2/9/16 - The Central Division is among hockey’s toughest in 2016, which is why 60 points is barely good enough for fourth place. The Colorado Avalanche snapped a four-game losing streak to maintain their position in the standings, getting a much-needed W by downing the Ottawa Senators 4-3. It was their first victory in the month of February, capping an anxious stretch where it appeared that they might fall right out of the top five in the West.

2/2/16 - The Colorado Avalanche were unable to add another win to their record when they got back on the ice after an almost week off. They played the Blackhawks on February 2 and lost 2-1. All the scoring action happened in the first period. Chicago got on the board early, with a score in the third minute of play, and they added another one seven minutes into the period. Gabriel Landeskog scored in the 10th minute of play to get the game within one. The Avalanche did not give up, but they were unable to get another puck past the goalie.

1/26/16 - The Colorado Avalanche have ended their four-game winning streak with a disappointing 1-6 loss against the San Jose Sharks on January 26th. Do not worry, however, because they have already returned to dominating. They followed their loss up with a strong upset victory against the Los Angeles Kings, taking two points in the final period while shutting their opponents out. This victory comes right before a nice, long series of home games, so fans have plenty to be excited about. If the Avalanche is able to maintain this momentum, each of the four upcoming home games should be exhilarating. It all starts on February 2nd when the Avalanche hosts the Chicago Blackhawks.
1/19/16 - The Colorado Avalanche may be bringing up the rear of the Central Division, but they have been performing well recently. They faced the Winnipeg Jets on January 18th, and were able to come away with a strong 2-1 victory, taking both their points in the second period.

This matchup also marks the end of their series of home games, but it will not be long before they hit the road once again. After the Avalanche have their match against the St. Louis Blues on January 22nd, they will be travelling until their homecoming on February 2nd against the Chicago Blackhawks.
1/12/16 - Currently ranked sixth in the NHL’s Western Conference Central Division, the Colorado Avalanche are hard at work proving they are worth a shot at the 2016 playoffs.

Coaches and managers hope that both Nikita Zadorov and Chris Bigras will be able to pitch in to help reanimate the team. Coming off a couple losses to the Blackhawks and the Lightning, Colorado is looking to take back the momentum with a Thursday (Jan. 14) night game versus the Devils and a Saturday (Jan. 16) matchup in Columbus against the Blue Jackets.
1/5/16 - As they look for bright spots in what has been a mostly disappointing season thus far, the Colorado Avalanche can certainly savor their 4-1 victory on Monday night over the first-place Los Angeles Kings. Jarome Iginla became just the 19th NHL player to reach 600 career goals, and he did so in strange fashion, firing what might’ve been a pass toward the goal and watching it rebound off of another player’s skate into the net. It was one of four goals Colorado scored on Jhonas Enroth, who filled in for the exceptional Jonathan Quick to unfavorable results. The Avalanche will try to keep the momentum on Friday night when the Predators come to town. Get your tickets for Nashville vs. Colorado starting at $31!

12/23/15 - The Colorado Avalanche hockey team should be pleased with their performance during the month of December.

12/15/15 - Are the Colorado Avalanche finally starting to get their game together? It looks like they could be a team to watch out for, as they have won three of their last four games. The Avalanche most recently defeated the St. Louis Blues, and it was a beautiful win on the road.

They’ll be back in Denver to take on the New York Islanders this Thursday, so be sure to come out and support them. Tickets can currently be purchased for as little as $19. Don’t miss this one!
12/8/15 - Missed chances may be to blame for Colorado’s loss Wednesday night at the Pepsi Center. After not following through on a couple of looks, they allowed the Penguins to close the gap on their 2-1 lead. Penalties were also factor, as was the fact that the team’s captain, Gabe Landeskog, did not play due to back spasms that started after morning practice.

11/24/15 - The month of November has been hot and cold for the Colorado Avalanche hockey team. The beginning games of the month were all losses, until suddenly the Avalanche had a major turnaround and pulled off three wins in a row.

11/10/15 - The Colorado Avalanche is on a roll. Since beginning their series of away games, they have not lost a single match, they managed to completely shut the Philadelphia Flyers out, and most recently, they earned an incredible six points against one of the best teams in the entire league: The Montreal Canadians. This short winning streak has bumped the Colorado Avalanche up to seventh in the Central Division with a record of 7-9-1.

The Avalanche will return to Colorado on November 25th.

10/14/15 - The NHL season is already underway again, and games are being played left and right. The Colorado Avalanche hasn’t had the start they were hoping for, for their 2015 season. They are currently sitting with a 1-3 record and at the bottom of the pack in the Central Division. Of course there is more than enough time to change their standings throughout the season, but it is always hard to come back from being behind.

3/25/15 - At 78 points, the Colorado Avalanche are unlikely to repeat last year’s achievement of qualifying for the Stanley Cup playoffs; they’re 12 points behind the No. 8 team, Calgary, in the Western Conference, even though the Avs still have a game in hand on many teams in the rest of the conference. Plus, the Avs have dropped their last two in a row.
3/20/15 - Some unfortunate losing streaks throughout the 2014-2015 season has put the Colorado Avalanche in sixth place in the Central division.

3/11/15 - What a difference a year makes.

The Avs are sixth of seven teams in the Central at the moment, just a single point ahead of Dallas, and 11th overall in the West.
3/4/15 - The cellar-dwelling Colorado Avalanche have to hope March is better for them than February was.

2/24/15 - After starting the month of February losing four out of five, the Colorado Avalanche have done an about-face and won four of their last five, including their last two straight.

2/19/15 - After breaking a four game losing streak last weekend with wins over Dallas and Arizona, the Colorado Avalanche ended up on the short end of a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Los Angeles at home. The Avs have fallen back into last place in the Central Division, three points behind Dallas and six in back of Minnesota.
2/10/15 - There’s been a bit of a turnaround for the Colorado Avalanche of late, and it’s not been a good one. The Avs have lost three straight in four February games, and have fallen back to the cellar of the Central Division, a point back of Dallas and three points behind resurgent Minnesota.
2/3/15 - It’s been a small world for the Colorado Avalanche since the All-Star Game. The Avs have played two games, both against division-leading Nashville, and split the two, falling 4-3 on the road in Nashville while goaltender Semyon Varlamov pitched a shutout three days later in a 3-0 win in Denver.
1/27/15 - It wasn’t all that long ago that the Colorado Avalanche were battling to get out of the Central Division cellar. But now, as the league picks up after the All-Star Game, the Avs find themselves just three points out of the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.

1/6/15 - After closing out 2014 and opening 2015 with a pair of wins, the Colorado Avalanche dropped their next game, a 4-3 loss to resurgent Columbus. While the penalty kill was perfect for the night, the power-play team had difficulty, going goal-less in three chances.
12/9/14 - With three straight losses and four losses in five games, the Colorado Avalanche find themselves digging a deeper and deeper hole. The Avs currently stand on 24 points, last in the Central Division.
12/2/14 - Though the Colorado Avalanche may be struggling on the ice, at least one player – 2013 No. 1 overall pick Nathan Mckinnon – is having a good time. MacKinnon can be seen in a pair of videos on ESPN, in which he catches a puck off the netting on his stick; and outsprints an Olympic gold medal winning short track speedskater.
11/25/14 - Good things may be worth waiting for, if you’re a fan of the Colorado Avalanche.

11/11/14 - It’s still early, but the Colorado Avalanche find themselves struggling to keep up with the front-runners in the Central Division. Just a point ahead of last place Dallas, the Avs will need to work on their defense if they want to move up, having given up 10 more goals than they’ve scored.
11/4/14 - On the one hand, the Colorado Avalanche are in dead last place in the Central Division of the Western Conference. On the other hand, with the way the entire division is playing, the Avs are just five measly points behind first place Nashville, in a division where standings change almost daily.
10/28/14 - The Colorado Avalanche lost their game against the San Jose Sharks in a shootout on October 28. Even with a power play in the last minute of overtime couldn’t help the Avalanche clinch the win. They are currently in 7th position in the Central Division with a 2-4-4 record. Over the weekend, they face the t. Louis Blues at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, then have a quick turnaround to get home to go against the Anaheim Ducks on home ice. The Avalanche will need to play their best without a lot of rest before they play the Ducks. They can still come back to be the consistent threat they were last year, as some of their injured players come back into play. This young team is still growing and improving their game.
The Colorado Avalanche head into the 2014-2015 season with more optimism than ever. The Avs put up huge numbers on offense to punch earn a bid in the postseason, including the fourth-most goals per game and the fifth best power play. Under first year head coach Patrick Roy, the Avs surprised many with their high degree of success and ultimately won first place in the Central Division, beating out fellow Cup contenders like the Blues and Blackhawks in the process. In their head coach’s sophomore year at the helm, this could be the year for the Colorado Avalanche.
The team is locked an loaded with young talent, like Tyson Barrie and Nathan MacKinnon, whose maturity showed last year. The Avalanche added Danny Briere Brune Gervais, Jarome Iginla and Brad Stuart, in place of Giguere, Hunwick, Malone, Parenteau and Paul Stastny’s departure. They acquisitions should bolster an already strong offense, headed by Landeskog, Duchene, O’Reilly, and their defense will remain steadfast in front of the tremendous Semyon Varlamov, who nearly earned the Vezina Trophy in his most recent campaign.

4/17/14 – Looking to secure their first playoff series since 2008, the Colorado Avalanche will take on the Minnesota Wild in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Action starts Thursday night in Denver with Game 1 (avg. $135); the Central Division winners gained a lot of ground in 2014, going from second to last in the league last year to earning a No.2 seed in the Western Conference. The Avs own the regular-season series (3-1-1) over high-pressure Minnesota who is looking to win their first postseason series since 2003. Colorado Avalanche playoff tickets for the Division Semifinals round are relatively cheap (avg. $211) – the average Stanley Cup Playoff tickets for the opening round are $233.
4/8/14 – Colorado’s six-game winning streak was snapped by Pittsburgh Sunday when the Pens recorded a 3-2 shootout victory. The Avs will finish the regular-season on a four game road trip that will take them to Canada and California in a tune-up for the NHL playoffs. With four games remaining, Colorado is in second in the Central Division, four points behind first-place St. Louis and two points ahead of third-ranked Chicago. Seeding and home-ice advantage are still up in the air which means the Avalanche need to finish strong. If the postseason began today, Colorado would have home-ice in an opening round series against the Blackhawks.
4/3/14 – The Avs have ended a three-year playoff drought and are on a roll following four consecutive wins, including three after regulation. With 102 points, Colorado is three ahead of the Blackhawks for second place in the Central Division with a game in hand but will end the regular-season with four straight on the road. This means there are just two more chances to see the Avalanche at Pepsi Center before the Stanley Cup Playoffs – tonight vs. the Rangers (min. $27) and Sunday vs. Pittsburgh (min. $50).
3/27/14 – The Avs had lost three straight before Tuesday’s 5-4 shootout win over Nashville. Colorado is four points shy of 100 and likely playoff bound. For a team that was predicted to finish at the bottom of the conference, the Avalanche are doing an excellent job scratching that idea. A potential second place finish in the Central Division is where Colorado is headed. Catch the Avs in one of their final four regular season games or lineup Colorado Avalanche NHL Western Conference First Round tickets at the Pepsi Center for as little as $44.
3/19/14 – Behind the sixth best offense in the NHL, the Colorado Avalanche have secured a spot in the NHL playoffs. If the postseason started today, the Avs would matchup against the Chicago Blackhawks with hopes of advancing past the first round for the first time since 2008. In his first season as the team’s coach, Patrick Roy, has his team sitting in fourth, tied with Chicago with 93 points. But first, the Avalanche will play five more regular-season games at Pepsi Center including Friday’s game against the Boston Bruins (avg. $170). The regular-season finale in Colorado is the most expensive matchup remaining; averaging $181 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
3/10/14 – Last Thursday, Colorado Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon extended his point streak to 13 games, breaking Wayne Gretzky’s NHL record for longest point streak by an 18-year old! With an assist on Andrew Benoit’s OT winner against the Detroit Red Wings, MacKinnon got the mark. Colorado had a four-game winning streak snapped on Saturday however in a key Central Division showdown against the St. Louis Blues. Tonight’s game against the Winnipeg Jets is the cheapest regular-season game remaining at the Pepsi Center, but don’t expect to see forward Paul Stastny in the lineup as he is suffering from a sore back. Avs fans hope that won’t be the case Wednesday when Colorado matches up against Chicago (avg. $111).
3/3/14 – After playing three in a row at home after the Olympic break, the Avalanche will hit the road against two of the Original Six – Chicago (3/4) and Detroit (3/6) – before returning to the Pepsi Center Saturday to play St. Louis. St. Louis Blues vs. Colorado Avalanche tickets are just $20 to get-in and from $48 for lower level seats. In the last week, the Avs announced a two-year extension for Marc-Andrew Cliche, locking up another player with an expiring contract. In 53 games, Cliche has six points and leads all Avalanche forwards in ice time per game.
2/25/14 - Colorado Avalanche forward, and three-time Czech Olympian, Milan Hejduk recently announced his retirement from the game after playing all 14 seasons of his career with the Avs. Colorado also got the unfortunate news that Alex Tanguay will be out for the rest of the season to rehab from (knee and hip) surgery. Additionally, the Avs will be missing defenseman Erik Johnson for two contests, due to a slashing suspension in the final game before the Olympic break. Despite the losses, Colorado is raring to start the second half of the season, with two of their four players sent to Sochi returning with medals (Matt Duchene with the Canada gold and Gabe Landeskog with the Sweden silver). Colorado Avalanche tickets for their first home game against the Los Angeles Kings tomorrow offer great prices: tickets start at just $15 in Upper, $38 in Loge and $40 in Club Level.
2/21/14 - In less than a week the Colorado Avalanche will resume NHL play and try to pull themselves up from their 5th seed spot. Post-Olympic break, Colorado will have a three game home stand, where they'll take on #7 Los Angeles, #8 Phoenix and #3 Tampa Bay for their best opportunity to move up in rankings before a tough road stretch. Players not participating in Sochi already started practicing yesterday, but one important forward was missing in action: Alex Tanguay will have hip surgery and be sidelined for the remainder of the season. Get Colorado Avalanche tickets now and be there to welcome back their four Olympians: Matt Duchene, Paul Stastny, Gabriel Landeskog and Semyon Varlamov.
2/4/14 – The Colorado Avalanche grabbed their fourth straight win Monday in a late effort against the New Jersey Devils (OT). Currently in fifth place in the tough West, the rolling Avs had dominated the Sabres two nights earlier at Pepsi Center in their final home game before Olympics, outscoring Buffalo 7-1. The much improved team under first-year coach Patrick Roy will travel across town tonight to play the NHL’s hottest team, New York Rangers, a team they’ve bested the last four years in a highly-anticipated matchup!
1/29/14 – Colorado Avalanche's 4-3 victory Monday night was the fourth straight against the Stars. Despite an aggressive effort from Dallas’ scoring leader Tyler Seguin, Semyon Varlamov stopped the Stars centre twice during a third-period power play with the score tied. Based on past performance, the Colorado Avalanche schedule is looking bright leading up to the Olympic break. The Avs will host Minnesota (avg. $52) and Buffalo (avg. $92) before hitting the road for four straight. Colorado Avalanche tickets are a bargain for 2014 games at the Pepsi Center; currently fourth cheapest in the NHL, Avs tickets are averaging a mere $76 after starting the year 9-4.
The Avalanche hope to return to their glory days under the leadership of Hall-of-Fame goaltender Patrick Roy, the team’s new head coach and vice president of hockey operations. Roy hopes to realize the potential of 2013 overall #1 draft pick Nathan MacKinnon and challenge for a top spot in the realigned Central Division. The average price for Avs home tickets in 2013-14 is $82, third cheapest in the league and 53% below league average. The most expensive game at the Pepsi Center is the home finale on 4/6 against the Penguins, averaging $122.
3/22/13 - The Colorado Avalanche roster didn't see much change this off-season; instead Colorado re-signed many of their free agents and added Pierre-Alexandre "P.A." Parenteau, Greg Zanon, and John Mitchell. The Avalanche recently handed the Chicago Blackhawks their first regulation loss of the season and snapped their point streak in a 6-2 victory. Mitchell contributed a goal in the win while Matt Duchene had four points for the Avs. Colorado nearly ended Chicago's streak two nights prior; but, lost 3-2. The "streak busters" hope to gain confidence from the experience as they begin the second half of the shortened NHL season.
The most expensive match this season will be played against rival Detroit Red Wings (4/5), averaging $95 a seat. Not every Avalanche game has a high price tag though — Colorado Avalanche tickets were second cheapest in the NHL at the beginning of the season. Avalanche tickets saw a 33% decrease since last season and are averaging $53 at Pepsi Center. It'll cost you $36 more to see the team on the road. At the start of the season there were tickets available to every home game for $30 or less.
The Colorado Avalanche share the Pepsi Center with the Denver Nuggets (NBA). Nuggets tickets are almost double the cost of Avalanche tickets. The second half of the Avalanche schedule includes a second Chicago Blackhawks meeting at home and six matchups against division opponents.
