In the latest installment of the Avalanche Weekly Breakdown, BSN Denver’s Adrian Dater and Allie Monroy discuss the reasons behind the Avs’ great record so far at the Pepsi Center. With two of the next three games at home, can the Avs keep up their great home-cooking ways?

Also up for discussion: Carl Soderberg’s season – so far – of redemption and whether playing the day after Thanksgiving will be a liability for the Avs, Friday in Minnesota.
