The Avs cruise to victory over the Ducks one final time as Gabe Landeskog records his 500th career point while helping the Avs be the first team in the NHL to 60 points. https://youtu.be/mMLaYu6taZQ
After two lethargic games in a row, the Avalanche rediscovered the mojo that led them on a month-long tear as they easily dispatched the Anaheim Ducks 4-1 in the final game of their season series. Colorado finishes their eight-game set against the woeful Ducks with a strong 6-1-1 record with their only two losses coming in the John Gibson Game…...
The Avs and Jonas Johansson shut out the Anaheim Ducks in a game that was largely overshadowed by the trades made by the Avs before and after. https://youtu.be/fE852yaVMqQ
Jonas Johansson has had a hell of a month. He goes from being part of the sewer that is the Buffalo Sabres organization (complete with a beat writer dragging him on social media) to being an emergency backup on the NHL’s best team. That was one thing, but then Johansson failed to stop the first shot he saw in his…...
The NHL Trade Deadline is right around the corner and the Colorado Avalanche have some needs they will be looking to address during the deadline and they have a few targets they’ll be taking a look at from a few different teams. The DNVR Avalanche crew starts this 7 video series with the Anaheim Ducks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIAKDcFikMs
Some games have too much nonsense. This was one of them. The Avs took the high road and dominated at the parts of hockey that win you games instead of the parts that just make you look like a goon. https://youtu.be/TOfAzl8JVOE
The Avs had the much-awaited explosion of goals everyone has been waiting for but are also facing down a glaring problem. https://youtu.be/x4yzD8VBiss
I’ve been using this space lately to give some shine to what the coaches have to say after games and I think given the…oddities…of tonight’s Avalanche game, it’s another good time to do it. When you have postgame quotes coming from Jared Bednar like: “I just didn’t like some of our habits in the first period when it comes to…...
After another blown lead, the Avs are staring down a serious question mark at the backup goalie position. Hunter Miska may have played himself out of a job in this game. https://youtu.be/qEh3e_MtORs
When the nuclear train gets rolling it doesn’t stop. Ride the hot hand all the way to victory station and call it a night. https://youtu.be/yAFivGABT3c
In terms of effort, this was the kind of game we expected to see a lot more of from the Colorado Avalanche this season. In terms of execution, this was the kind of game we expected would happen going against a goaltender of John Gibson’s ilk this season. The Avalanche outshot the Anaheim Ducks 33-15, allowing just a single shot…...
John Gibson and his army of goal posts kept the Avs from a win as few costly mistakes finished Colorado in a game in which they deserved better. https://youtu.be/Jb0gxbDYY9s
Bowen Byram was the spark for the Avs in the third period as Philipp Grubauer outdueled John Gibson in an overtime nail biter. https://youtu.be/kciBqU3CIZI
“He was definitely our best player on the ice.” When the guy who scores the game-winning goal in overtime has that definitive of a statement about your night, you know it’s been a good performance. There weren’t a lot of incredible, highlight-reel saves made by Philipp Grubauer as he stopped 36 of 38 shots from the Anaheim Ducks, but when…...
