A fantastic game from the Avs’ depth forwards like Logan O’Connor, JT Compher, Alex Newhook, and Ben Meyers. The Avs are able to hold on to an early lead despite some third period struggles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6zq_y8M1RI
There is now no doubt Jared Bednar is the best coach in franchise history. With goals from Artturi Lehkonen, Andrew Cogliano, and Alex Newhook Colorado was able to defeat Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rtlt-HCVbkU
Whether it’s centering Andrew Cogliano and Logan O’Connor or moving up to play with Artturi Lehkonen and Mikko Rantanen, Alex Newhook is becoming a key piece for Colorado. Nathan MacKinnon’s shootout put the Avs over the top. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPbpN-OEshE
Seven goals including multi-goal performances from Rantanen, Lehkonen, and Newhook lead the Avs to their biggest win of the season. Finally a spark of life inside an organization that has been on the struggle bus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JduGQnRgESg
Could the Nathan MacKinnon injury be the final nail in the coffin for an Avs team that just cannot stay healthy? It certainly was for this game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdJgd0aFMjI
The Avs continue to find consistent quality across their lineup despite all of the injuries affecting the roster. With wins in seven of the last eight games, Colorado is on a roll. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTd65IR8RJk
With the Avs season set to begin tomorrow, the Avs top-6 has seen some major changes but is still led by its core staples. Can MacKinnon, Rantanen, and Landeskog turn the Avs into a dynasty? https://youtu.be/UQs-Jpmk4mQ

No one should care about the result of this hockey game but they should care about the steps Alex Newhook is taking toward becoming the Avs permanent 2C, as well as other solid performances in the game. https://youtu.be/PcTKrpRd7HI
There were a lot of star turns in the Colorado Avalanche’s quest for the Stanley Cup last year. Notably, Nazem Kadri stepped out of the shadows of his own career full of frustrations and into the brightest spotlight imaginable as he thrived in a way he never before had. That success paved the way for Kadri to secure the kind…...
All offense all the time in the battle of the forces of nature. The Avs clinch the Western Conference as they score another touchdown in a game that saw every line score at least one goal. https://youtu.be/5iLudCHD1zo
In a tough loss that likely spells the end of any playoff contention hopes the Sharks fall short against the best team in the west despite a heroic performance from Tomas Hertl to keep it interesting. https://youtu.be/_8aL4gWY9ec
Two goals and a three-point night from Cale Makar leads the Avs in a win that was much stronger than the final score indicates. Back to business as usual for Colorado as they remain on top of the league. https://youtu.be/3BKhuPN_V5E
Welcome to the newest weekly installment that I’ll be bringing you only right here on theDNVR.com ahead of the weekend. I’ve gotten to know someone over the last several years who I would consider to be somewhat of a gambling expert, and we spend a lot of time discussing the NHL. No, not just because I’m desperately trying to win…...
The Avs ability to consistently make even decent NHL teams look like routine wins should stand as a statement about how good Colorado really is. A game led by the forward core felt like a refreshing break for the Avs defense. https://youtu.be/rwbyauNpzRY
The Avs get the two points and that’s almost certainly the only thing anyone not named Tage Thompson is going to remember about this game. The Avs exerted the minimum effort required to get the W. https://youtu.be/UGAuOO4k1LQ
What should have been a routine win turned into a bit of an adventure in a crazy third period but the result remains the same. A Colorado team that continues to show growth on a nightly basis should terrify the league. https://youtu.be/VQxv9exo1OI
The Avs rhythm of letting teams hang around but finding a way to get the job done continues, with Val Nichushkin stepping up for the Avs on the offensive side of the puck. https://youtu.be/QycTynQ2lxY
Earlier this week the Colorado Avalanche played back-to-back games in southern California to cap off a two-game road trip, and the word that was most often used to describe the way they played in those two games was “tired”. Those were the team’s sixth and seventh games within 11 days, including three sets of back-to-backs, so it was easy to…...
