Off to an unbeaten start on the road, the Colorado Avalanche now face an opponent that has been almost equally adept at defeating them in recent matchups.
The Calgary Flames look to add to their recent mastery of Colorado and avoid a season-high third straight defeat Wednesday night at the Saddledome.
Colorado (6-2-0) extended a team record by improving to 6-0-0 on the road Saturday against Chicago. After blowing a 3-1 lead, the Avalanche got a tying goal from rookie Gabriel Landeskog with 1:48 left in regulation and went on to a 5-4 shootout win.
"It's always nice to be on the road with the boys," defenseman Shane O'Brien said. "We've got a good group of guys in here. Everyone gets along with everyone. They have fun coming to the rink. Right now, we're road warriors, so we're going to try to continue that."
This game will close a road-heavy season-opening stretch for the Avs, who will have played seven of nine away from Denver before beginning a three-game homestand Friday.
