Sched watch

The Avs make an Ontario swing playing in Toronto tomorrow night and here in Ottawa on Thursday. They've only got one win so far this season and the pressure is on Theodore to match up against the opposing goaltender - something he hasn't done this year - and for the team to score more.

They failed to sellout their building on Monday night for the first time in 11 years. From the Denver Post:
The official attendance of 17,681 for the Avalanche's 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks was only 326 short of capacity in the Pepsi Center, but it ended the longest recorded sellout streak in National Hockey League history at 487 games.
The streak began in the Avalanche's eighth regular-season home game, just after the franchise was moved from Quebec to Denver, when a crowd of 16,061 watched Colorado tie the Dallas Stars 1-1 in McNichols Sports Arena on Nov. 9, 1995.
