Adrian Dater previews the Avalanche’s second preseason game, this time against the Los Angeles Kings.
Of particular note is the shot differential from last night’s game against the Blues.
I know it’s only preseason, but I did find the shots stats (34-18 against) alarming. One of the main goals of this year’s team is to have possession of the puck more and cut down on the shots against.
The Avalanche need to maintain better puck possession in front of their goalies if they wish to have success. Being outshot two to one creates a large mountain to climb.
