Ten points were possible. Eight points were achieved. For this five-game Avalanche homestand, that’ll work.
I said before this homestand started that anything less than seven points would be a failure, given what I feel is a very important time of the season and given the level of quality competition on it. After the first two games, I wasn’t feeling so great about the Avs’ chances of hitting that benchmark, as the first two games were overtime losses to Pittsburgh and Dallas.
