The final score was 4-1 and there was never much doubt as to who the victor would be. Colorado is falling further and further below .500 and needs to start turning this season around ASAP.

Even more upsetting, all but one of those defeats has come at home. Tuesday’s away game against the Nashville Predators briefly offered a glimmer of hope, with the Avs tying the game 3-3 in the second period. Unfortunately, the home team tacked on a goal in the third period that Colorado simply could not answer. This is the first of four away games before the Avs come home to play the Philadelphia Flyers next Wednesday. Tickets to that game are $17.

The Colorado Avalanche could have faired much better against the Arizona Coyotes on November 8 if not for about one minute of bad play. In the second period of the game, both teams scored two goals. However, the Avalanche gave up goals in the first 28 seconds of the opening period as well as the first 11 seconds of the final frame. The final score ended up 4-2 in favor of the Coyotes, and Colorado has those opening seconds of the first and third periods to blame.

The Avalanche got goals in the first and third periods from Matt Duchene and Blake Comeau, but the game never really felt close. Colorado has looked much better in other games and will look to return to that aggressive play in upcoming matchups.

The biggest question has been which forwards would start and which would stay in the box at the outset, but the final preseason games and practices seem to have solidified that. With Blake Comeau and Jarome Iginla healthy and ready to go, the Avalanche is set to take on the new season. The team will play much of its early games on the road, but will be back home to host the Winnipeg Jets on October 28 with tickets starting at $21.
