The Colorado Avalanche scored an impressive achievement on Tuesday as the first team to win 40 games after a 5-3 victory over the New York Islanders at Ball Arena. They became the second fastest team to accomplish it.

Avalanche coach Jared Bednar expressed the team’s passion and shared his thought on the overall performance.

“We had a little talk after the second (period),” Bednar said. “I’ll stick with what I said the other day; it just kind of drags out the urgency in the group, wanting to win and keep this thing rolling in the right direction. I just felt like our top guys started to get going.”

Colorado defenceman Devon Toews scored a goal and provided two assists for the Avalanche (40-10-4), who now have secured a fourth-straight victory.

“It’s just nice to win,” Toews said. “That’s the most important thing. You have friends on other teams and people that are close to you. But at the end of the day, we have to go out there and do our job. We were fortunate tonight to get the win.”

Meanwhile, Islanders coach Barry Trotz defended his team’s play on Tuesday night, adding that they were playing well in the beginning.

“I thought the game was pretty decent,” Trotz said. “It’s a pretty good team over there. … I thought the first two periods were pretty even, then they got it tied up on the end of a power play.”

Next, the Avalanche face the Arizona Coyotes and the Islanders will host the Vancouver Canucks.
