Avalanche aim to continue hot start versus Capitals

The Colorado Avalanche rolled to victories in their first four games of the season, all at home, and now they'll see if they can keep their success going when they head to Washington for Monday's game with the Capitals.

Colorado (4-0-0) is off to the team's top start in six years. The Avalanche topped Calgary, Minnesota, Boston and then defeated Arizona 3-2 in overtime on Saturday.

In that game, rookie goalie Pavel Francouz made his NHL debut and finished with 34 saves. He is the backup to Philipp Grubauer, who backed up goalie Braden Holtby during his time with the Capitals.
