I’ve always been a big believer in how you respond to adversity says the most about you. Bad things happen to all of us but how you handle yourself when things are on fire, that’s really what brings out the character. The Avs weren’t anywhere close to “things are on fire” mode yet, but after a frustrating 6-3 loss to...

Style. Systems. Regular season success versus postseason success. Nothing brings these discussions to the forefront of Avalanche hockey quite like matchups against the St. Louis Blues. After the Avs lost both games in St. Louis earlier this year, making it six losses in a row against the Blues, the writing on the wall appeared clear: the Avs were not built...

“A Stanley Cup preview.” There are a handful of teams that run into each other every year and the game gets billed as a potential preview of the Stanley Cup Finals. We all have a crystal ball and it’s never not hazy for us. Double negatives aside, this was nothing but positive for the Avalanche. Coming in with two wins...

I tried writing about Colorado’s new guys and what a difference they were making this season but the end of the Vancouver game changed pretty drastically and I had to CTRL+A <—- that sucker so here we are again. With injuries to nearly half of Colorado’s regular forward corps, the Avs were once again carried by...

Sports justice is one of those things that sometimes you have to wait years for. As a Kansas basketball fan, nothing was more cathartic than watching the Jayhawks blow out their former head coach who had stabbed them in the back and left them in the lurch after the 2003 season. It was perfect sports karma but we had to...

Such is the nature of professional sports. Two nights ago, a fairy tale. Tonight, a nightmare. Fresh off a 40-save performance that doesn’t technically count as a shutout but absolutely should, Adam Werner never stood a chance tonight in Edmonton in a 6-2 loss against an Oilers team angry coming off a blowout loss and looking to get their mojo...
