Quite possibly the only place in The Centennial State where an Avalanche is welcomed, Denver’s Pepsi Center has served as the home of the Avs since 1999. Hall of Famers Patrick Roy, Joe Sakic and Peter Forsberg have all called this rink home and fans have been treated to spectacular sights like Roy Bourque finally lifting the Stanley Cup after a legendary career.

Colorado Avalanche Stadium

The Avalanche have been comfortably relocated in Colorado for decades now following a previous life Quebec. The bulk of those years have been spent with Pepsi Center playing host to Colorado’s home contests. During an extended stretch that bridged the McNichols Sports Arena era and the Pepsi Center era, Avs fans set the all-time NHL record for the longest consecutive home sell-out at 487 games. To be fair, it’s a bit easier to get people out to games when your team regularly finishes at the top of the division with a roster stuffed with stars. Speaking of which, the Pepsi Center was the site of Colorado’s 2001 Game 7 Stanley Cup victory over the New Jersey Devils. Joe Sakic passing hockey’s most important prize to Ray Bourque still ranks as one of the biggest tearjerking moments in the history of the sport.

Colorado’s attendance totals have dipped a bit since the team’s glory days. Over the past five years, the Pepsi Center’s been 82-90% full for Avs home games. In 2014-15, the Avs thrived doing business at their home rink. Colorado racked up 23 of their 39 wins from last season while playing in front of the Pepsi Center crowd. If you’re looking to see the Avs win in person, your best bet is to head to Denver.
