It’s a good time to live in Colorado. Some sports analysts are predicting that both the Avalanche and the Nuggets will make the playoffs this year, so you can expect to go deep into each season. Don’t wait until the last minute to get behind your favorite teams. Head to the Pepsi Center to catch some NHL or NBA action in December. This could be the year for both teams, so you want to be in the stands, pushing the guys to victory.
The Avalanche in December
The Avalanche is hosting lots of teams in December, but two matchups stand out. They take on Central Division rivals the Dallas Stars on Dec. 15 and the Chicago Blackhawks on Dec. 21. Tickets start at $27, so it’s affordable to see your favorite team in action.
Out of these two matchups, the game against the Stars will be much more intense. The team has made a name for itself as an offensive powerhouse, but that’s okay because Philipp Grubauer is the new goalie for the Avalanche. He basically won the Metropolitan Division for the Capitals last season, and now he’s tasked with holding down the Central Division. This just might be the best division in hockey, but he has the skills to do it.

The Nuggets in December
The Denver Nuggets have a lot going on in December. They’ll start the month at home on Dec. 10 against the Memphis Grizzlies and end it on Dec. 28 against the San Antonio Spurs. There are lots of games in between, but the contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder is on Dec. 14. It’s always fun to see a game against a Northwest Division rival, and since tickets start at $19, you can go on a budget.
Last season was disappointing for the Thunder. The team acquired Carmelo Anthony, and he ended up with career lows in important offensive categories. They handed him off to the Rockets, though, and they added some important pieces to the team. That means you should expect the Thunder to come to play. Of course, the Nuggets will rise to the occasion and take them down, but it’ll be a fun game to watch.
The Nuggets and the Avalanche don’t have to be the only winners in town. You can be a winner too by picking up a new vehicle from Mike Shaw Subaru in Thornton, Colorado. Our team knows the Subaru brand inside and out, and we will be happy to help you pick out the right set of wheels.
