Colorado Avalanche 2020-21 schedule introduced; first 2 video games in opposition to St. Louis Blues – Colorado Springs Gazette

Instead of waiting months for another crack at a team, NHL losers will get a second chance right away.

Consecutive games against the same opponent are all over the Colorado Avalanche’s schedule, released Wednesday. The Avalanche will open their dense 56-game regular season at home Jan. 13 against the St. Louis Blues.

They play each team at least twice in a row — they have three sets of four straight games against the same opponent — until April, when there’s a single game against St. Louis.

The schedule is less diverse than in normal years with each team only facing divisional opponents. The realigned West Division has Colorado, Anaheim, Arizona, Los Angeles, Minnesota, St. Louis, San Jose and Vegas. The Avalanche will meet each eight times, four home and four away.

Popping in and out of town for a single game is a luxury of the past for now. Colorado is set to hit the road for the first time Jan. 19 and play two games in three days at Los Angeles, then do the same at Anaheim.

There are seven sets of back-to-back games.
