Yep, these next 5 tilts will be a major test for them in all areas of their game, up and down the line-up.
There's also a Test-Within-The-Test, too: the Chicago game on Sunday.
It'll be Colorado's 3rd road game in 4 days, a back-to-backer after Dallas. And the 'Hawks, with all their problems, will have had 3 days rest against the sure-to-be-tired Avalanche... who will probably start Sauve in goal (after Aebby vs. Dallas on Saturday).
If they trash Columbus tonight, I can see a lacklustre performance coming up against the Preds. And chances are that the Preds might outwork and outskate the Avs their wich can lead to an unnecessary loss of points. It's not like we haven't seen that one before...
