The Avs just played the best game maybe any team has ever played in a Stanley Cup Final. Sheer dominance for a full 60 minutes left a Tampa team with all the experience in the world feeling something new. A blowout loss to go down 2 – 0 in the Final. https://youtu.be/Dkb1vsX8ywA
What more could you ask from Game One of the Stanley Cup Final? Banger game, all world plays, big finish a full series of that is a dream for fans with no rooting interest and a rollercoaster for those who do. https://youtu.be/f1bvXp3OiTY
At times it feels like the Avs can casually make their way to wins but when you dig into the story beneath every win is built on a solid bed of hockey. With quality play from places, the Avs have been looking for it from this W is a good one. https://youtu.be/S-G44HzwKWE
The Avs brought their A-game and the Kings had no choice but to cede power to the dominant force. For Cale Makar, this game good have larger implications when it comes to season-ending awards. https://youtu.be/Vg-QsrBAFqQ
As the Avs offense continues to gear back up it allows them to get away with some suspect defense and goaltending. Plus having a Cale Makar up your sleeve is basically a cheat code. https://youtu.be/bOOMRl7czn4
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
The Avs were let down mostly by their defense and goaltending in a game that was actually kind of a banger. Ultimately it was the Avs top guns that made the fatal mistake and that’s a tough pill to swallow. https://youtu.be/W5G4yjg7xfU
The Avs lean on defensive production to notch their 11th comeback win of the season on a night where the high-end talent was on full display. Even when trailing in the third period the expectation is starting to become that the Avs will win. https://youtu.be/_2RP_Cnbjls
Welcome in to a new weekly piece that you’ll be able to find every Monday, only right here at DNVR. I’ll be taking a look back at the week that was, and giving you 10 things that stood out to me, good or bad. Generally, I’ll have it split up, 5 things that focus on the Colorado Avalanche, and 5…...
Sometimes you don’t have to play well for very long to win a game. The Avs needed less than 30 seconds to flip this game on its head and escape Vegas with a W. The Avs quick-strike potential should terrify every team in the league. https://youtu.be/ZxKQxOaB8xc
A nine goal in a game where Landeskog was a hard ten. The Avs ability to outscore their problems is always a threat and when their stars are at their best most games are no contest. https://youtu.be/caY7PtRn1TE
I was asked during a little mini-interview pre-game, “why is this game important?”, and truthfully I was really tempted to look right at the camera and say “it’s not”. Obviously, I didn’t say that, your boy is a professional and that’s show biz, baby, but that was how it felt coming into it. The Colorado Avalanche has a 12-point lead…...
The Avs win a game in which they look dominant on paper but via the eye test left a lot to be desired. While the Avs can afford to cut corners against a team like Arizona it’s not something they should make a habit of. https://youtu.be/ahwt5oBvYIY
The true outcome of this hockey game will never be known thanks to a call that simply cannot be justified. A tough way for the Avs to take an L in a game that really shouldn’t have felt that bad to lose. https://youtu.be/hDlXArCCDtM
Jack Johnson – C+ I thought this was one of Jack Johnson’s better games. Did a good job of pushing play, and wasn’t caught out of position regularly in his own end as we’ve seen recently. He had a good five-minute stretch in the third where he put several shots on towards the net and played a part in the…...
Hat trick number two on the season comes from Andre Burakovsky in impressive fashion against the Florida Panthers. As the only Avs goal scorer in the game, every goal was massive in the Avs win. https://youtu.be/KKJXXTbO6Q4
A glitch in the matrix perhaps? Two 7 – 3 games with fairly similar storylines one after the other leads the Avs to feel quite good about themselves but Rudo may be stuck on repeat. https://youtu.be/jbl4pTYdVdw
The Avs final put together a standard win against the Montreal Canadiens. With well-rounded play from the entire lineup, the penalty kill played a crucial role in getting the Avs going. https://youtu.be/bjSRT9lT140
The Avs unload their third blowout in four games as goals are getting poured in from everywhere. Cale Makar leads the way as he sets himself on pace for more than 20 goals this season. https://youtu.be/QNA2fJb1VDQ
