Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Avalanche vs Red Wings

Rival Team: Detroit Red Wings

The Avalanche and Red Wings had the fiercest rivalry in the NHL during the 1990s and early 2000s. These two teams absolutely despised each other, and it showed. During the 1996-97 season, the two engaged in one of the bloodiest brawls in NHL history. A year later the two engaged in another brawl where they combined for 46 penalties and 228 penalty minutes. The rivalry between these two isn’t anywhere as intense as it used to be but an Avalanche-Red Wings game is still something worth experiencing.

Avalanche vs Wild

Rival Team: Minnesota Wild

The Avalanche-Wild rivalry is a budding rivalry in the Central Division. In 2014, these two teams met in the First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs where the Wild upset the top-seeded Avalanche in seven games. A couple of years later the Wild narrowly beat out the Avs for the last spot in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. There is always a lot at stake when these two get together so don’t miss your chance to see the Avs take on the Wild.
