Despite their strong start this season, the Colorado Avalanche are still having trouble filling seats at the Pepsi Center.
The crowd for Wednesday's game against Phoenix set a new record home low at 11,012. Colorado's average attendance - 14,759 - puts the team in 25th place in the NHL, ahead of only five teams including the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay.
Kroenke Sports executive vice president Paul Andrews said he'd normally think the economy was to blame but he said the team is offering many low-cost options.
