Colorado Avalanche dominates New York Islanders on New Year’s Eve – The Denver Post

At even strength, on the power play or during a penalty kill Sunday night, the Avalanche was dialed in at the Pepsi Center against the New York Islanders.

Four goals from three Swedes and terrific goaltending from Jonathan Bernier carried Colorado to a memorable 6-1 New Year’s Eve victory that featured a plethora of highlights for a team on the rise.

“Good all-around team effort by our group,” Avs coach Jared Bednar said.

The Avs (19-16-3), who aren’t yet to the 41-game midpoint of their season, are now just three victories shy of matching what they amassed in the disaster that was the 2016-17 season. What was NHL’s worst team last season — by far — suddenly stands just three points outside a playoff spot with games in hand over many of the teams in front of it.

Colorado’s 41 points are just seven shy of what it produced last season.
