Avs open up 2008 vs Boston

The Colorado Avalanche will open their 13th season in Denver by hosting the Boston Bruins on at the Pepsi Center on Oct. 9.

Highlights of the Avs' schedule released Thursday include a visit by Sydney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Jan. 10, and an eight-game homestand from Jan. 16 to Feb. 5 - the second longest in Avalanche history.

The NHL's adjusted schedule has the Avalanche facing each of the Eastern Conference teams at least once. The Avs' home slate features all five Northeast Division teams, including Montreal and Toronto.

The Avs have a six-game road trip from Feb. 20 to March 2.

They open their six-game exhibition schedule against Los Angeles on Sept. 24 at the Pepsi Center.
