The Avalanche lead the race for the 2022 President's Trophy, awarded to NHL team with the most points at the end of the regular season. The Florida Panthers are two points behind Colorado in that race.

Wednesday's win was not only notable for the franchise record set, but also extended Colorado's winning streak to 7 games. The Avalanche have won 14 of their last 20 games.
