It’s a Colorado Avalanche gameday! The 2022-2023 Colorado Avalanche are nothing but inconsistent. They were riding high, commanding a six-game win streak going into Thursday night’s game against the hapless Anaheim Ducks, who have fewer regulation wins (7) than any team in the NHL, and they shockingly handed them another one.
The Avs coasted through the third, and coach Jared Bednar said the collapse was entirely due to a lack of effort, so it should be interesting to see what kind of intensity the Avs bring to this afternoon’s game against the Blues. This is not a team that has played well enough to be able to coast through games, and if the effort in the 3rd period against the Ducks is a harbinger of things to come, then Colorado will continue their trend of alternating long winning streaks and losing streaks.
