Avs lose first in regulation, but that’s the least of their worries now



One of these two games was going to be a loss, let’s be real here. No chance the Avs were going to run the table on this road trip, especially not in back-to-back games in Tampa Bay and St. Louis. The Avs got the win in Tampa Bay, but lost to the Blues 3-1 tonight.

Avs are now 7-1-1 on the season, which we all would have taken had it been presented to us as an option record-wise after nine games, yeah?
