SUNRISE, Fla. – Greetings from sunny Sunrise, where the locals here are actually complaining a bit about the temperatures the last few days – high 50s, low 60s.
Avs went through their paces here at the BB&T Center, where they’ll play the 11-10-5 Florida Panthers. The Avs have a great top line, obviously, but so do the Panthers, with Jonathan Huberdeau, Aleksander Barkov and Mike Hoffman. All three have been point-a-game or better this year so far. Avs need to bring their ‘A’ game defensively, after allowing six the other night.
