The Colorado Avalanche have yet to score a goal this season.

Of course the season is only two games old for Colorado but the lack of scoring may be a cause for concern. Colorado has been shut out by Minnesota in back-to-back games. The Avs also struggled finding the back of the net during the preseason, where they registered only 10 goals in eight exhibition games. "I don't think we're paying the price enough," said forward Gabriel Landeskog. "We're being too fancy. It's little details." The Avalanche have a lot of firepower upfront, and they should fill up the opposition net fairly soon.

Gabriel Landeskog will not play for Sweden at the World Hockey Championships due to a hand injury suffered in the first round.

Landeskog's injury was kept quiet during the first round and he may have suffered it in Game 3 when slashed by Matt Cooke, according to Adrian Dater of the Denver Post. The Swedish hierarchy invited him to play at the Worlds but he has said no. Look for a big season from the Colorado captain in 2014-15 as he managed 26 goals and 65 points in 81 games with 71 penalty minutes this season.

Gabriel Landeskog believes home ice advantage will help push the Avalanche in Game 7.

"When we're at home, it's like we have one or two extra players out there. The crowd has been unbelievable," Landeskog said. "It's probably hard to imagine for (nonplayers), but when we're on the ice every single rush, every odd-man rush, every backcheck, you feel the crowd. They're so into it, and you want to push that extra mile when you hear that." The Colorado captain has three goals and one assist in six games versus Minnesota in the series. Landeskog has earned one helper in his last four outings.

Landeskog had 26 goals and 65 points in 81 games this season.

Gabriel Landeskog wants to see the Avalanche perform better with the man advantage as their first round series progresses.

Colorado was 0-for-4 on the power play in Game 1. "We had some chances and we didn't get anything, and they scored on one of their power plays," Landeskog said. "Special teams are so big in the playoffs, so that's one thing we've got to improve." Colorado ranked fifth with a 19.8% power-play success rate in the regular season.

The Colorado Avalanche won a division title this season and are set for a playoff run despite having the third lowest payroll in the NHL during 2013-14.

Just two teams spent less on base player salaries this season according to Cap Geek, while those two teams (the Panthers and Islanders) finished way out of the playoff contention. The Avs are fuelled by a young core with players like Gabe Landeskog still on rookie contracts. Landeskog is earning under one million dollars this season, but signed a lucrative contract extension.
