In the latest edition of the Avalanche Weekly Breakdown, presented by Piper Electric, Adrian Dater and Allie Monroy talk about the Avs’ upcoming playoff series with the San Jose Sharks.

How do the Avs match up? What kind of effect will the week-long layoff have on them?

Also up for discussion: the return of Sam Girard and Dater’s series prediction.


Adrian Dater has been covering the Avs since their inception. In 2015, he became the lead NHL national columnist with Bleacher Report, where he worked until 2017 before joining BSN Denver.
