Mixed Emotions After Colorado's 2-2 Road Trip

Avalanche drops final contest at the Capitals

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

WASHINGTON--When the Colorado Avalanche reviews its most recent road trip, the team will look at a lot of the good things that were accomplished.

A 2-2 record on the road is generally suitable, as playing .500 hockey in visiting buildings and taking care of one's own business at home are usually ingredients for success and playoff berths in today's NHL.

For the Avs, they will gladly take the four points earned but also realize the missed opportunity to pick up a few more over the past week.

EJ appeared in his 600th NHL game on Dec. 3 against Dallas, becoming the first defenseman from the 2006 draft class to play 600 games.

BUSY DECEMBER: The Avalanche will play 15 games this month, including nine at Pepsi Center, which equals their busiest home December ever. Only twice before have the Avs hosted nine games in this particular month, also doing so in December of 2000-01 and 2011-12.
