The Colorado Avalanche beat the Ottawa Senators at Pepsi Center tonight to officially sweep the two-game series. The Senators did not go gentle into that good night despite the 3-0 score. The game was hard-fought on both sides with the third goal coming on the power play.
The Avalanche now move to within one point of overtaking St. Louis for best in the Central Division — which will mean best in the Western Conference. They have a four-game home stand in front of them and a game in hand — more on all that at the end.
The game was as good from the Avalanche’s side as you’d want.
