Colorado are in electric form under the guidance of local hockey legend Patrick Roy. Until now they are averaging 3.5 goals a game, compared to just one conceded in return.

Talking about the amazing start to his coaching career, Roy has said, "I don't know what to say. And that doesn't happen to me very often. I certainly appreciate more the way our guys played than appreciate breaking a record or something like this. I'm not really excited about that record, to be honest with you. I'm excited about looking at the way the team has been playing, how hard the team has been working."

Goaltender Semyon Varlamov has been in solid form under Roy's guidance. Roy has said, "I guess goaltending is crucial in this league. You need some good goaltending every night, that's what we've been lucky with. ... That's a game where Varly -- that was a steal from him."

Meanwhile, the Red Wings have been in menacing form in front of goal, forcing 35 shots a night. Coach Babcock has said, "I think we've done a lot of good things. ... We've just got to keep getting better as a team. I like what's going on."

On today's game he said, "They look like they go very fast. ... They got a bunch of injuries last year, and this year they got more guys again and keep adding good players and (MacKinnon) looks like he's going to be a star very quickly, so they've got a good-looking team."
