The Colorado Avalanche are playing good hockey—really good hockey. The Avalanche have won eight of their last nine games, and have moved themselves into the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference—which is, of course, the final playoff spot.

The Avalanche are getting great production not only from veterans like Milan Hejduk and Jean-Sebastien Giguere, but also from players who can't even legally consume alcohol, like Matt Duchene, Ryan O'Reilly and Gabriel Landeskog.

We'll be breaking down every position for the Avs to see why this young team is playing so well.
