Looking for the Colorado Avalanche next game? We are your source for all the NHL odds, action and scores. The Colorado Avalanche play their home games at the Pepsi Center. Their home games are all televised from the Mountain Time Zone.
After winning 2 Cups and making the playoffs in every single one of their first ten seasons, the Avalanche have slowed their path of destruction. The last decade has seen them only make the playoffs three times in 10 years, and they only have one playoff series win against the Wild in 2005-2006. Still, the early days were glorious. The arrival of Patrick Roy immediately created a contender, and the Avalanche became the only NHL team (expansion or brand new) to win the Stanley Cup during their first season after moving to a new city.
They were also just the second team to win a championship their first season after relocation in any of the four major North American sports leagues. The Washington Redskins of the NFL were the first. They have seen several great players over the years. This includes Roy, Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Adam Foote and Ray Bourque.
