Avs fighting to hold onto wild card spot vs. Blackhawks

The Colorado Avalanche have answered five losses in a seven-game stretch with three straight victories to grab a tenuous hold on the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

The Avalanche (33-29-12) look to strengthen their grasp on the conference's eighth seed on Saturday afternoon when they begin a home-and-home series against the visiting Chicago Blackhawks.

Philipp Grubauer has played a significant role in Colorado's three-game winning streak, turning aside 102 of 104 shots to help the Avalanche pull even in points with Arizona. The Avalanche can claim the tie-breaker over the Coyotes based on goal differential.
