Sure, the Avs have had a terrific start to the season. Two big wins over two of the best teams in the West.
Joe Sakic time is over.
The Avs have had almost a week to cool down, come back to earth, and realize they're supposed to be the doormats of the Western Conference.
The Nashville Predators will be a good barometer for this road trip. The Preds are always lurking near the 7th or 8th spot and will no doubt, be a good challenge for the 2-0 Avalanche. If the Avs can come out and play like they did the first two games, then this group has the chance to do something that was very unexpected over the next few months.
