- Pittsburgh has won two straight games against the Avalanche and six of the last seven meetings.
- The Penguins have a three-game winning streak against the Avalanche here in Colorado.
- The last three games between the Penguins and Avalanche have featured two shutouts and a combined six goals in 187:24 minutes. Each team has three goals during that span.
