This marks the fourth consecutive season that Colorado will be making a playoff appearance, the longest streak for the franchise since making 11 straight trips from 1995 to 2006, a run that included a pair of Stanley Cup titles (1996, 2001). The only other time the club reached the playoffs in four or more consecutive years was a seven-season run from 1981 to 1987 as the Quebec Nordiques.
