Avalanche hope to turn playoff appearance into another run

DENVER (AP) Heading into last season, the theme was a "something-to-prove" refrain from captain Gabriel Landeskog and the Colorado Avalanche.

This season, it's more of a "need-to-be-respected" tune.

The Avs caught a lot of teams by surprise a season ago when they improved by 47 points to make the postseason. They know they won't be catching anyone off guard this time around. They also know they have the speed, youth and the scoring skills of Nathan MacKinnon to help them make another playoff appearance.
