Stat Of The Week
All 30 teams will be off both Friday and Saturday for the NHL's annual holiday break. There have been no games on Christmas Eve since 1972 (when three were played) and none on Christmas Day since 1971 (when six were played).
This week on Avalanche All Access, we join the Avs players and coaches at The Children’s Hospital as they make their yearly visit to lift the patients’ spirits during the holiday season. Also, Kyle Keefe sits down with Ryan O’Reilly, who talks about his childhood growing up with a large family, including foster children. Plus, Mike Haynes chats with head coach Joe Sacco, and Peter McNab talks about the disappearance of home-ice advantage in hockey.
