Let’s start with the obvious here. When the NHL announced their GM of the Year candidates and Joe Sakic wasn’t on it but Jim Nill was, the credibility of the award went out the window. Sakic’s offseason consisted of taking chances on a myriad of guys to improve Colorado’s depth. Every move Sakic made worked out, including pulling Val Nichushkin…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – C+ Simply put, the problem with Bellemare this series was that he was asked to do too much. As a fourth line center, he is fine. The struggle of Compher’s line this series forced him into the role of third line center, as he played more than JTC at even strength. He scored the big goal to…...

In 2014, there was a deafening “ping” when Nino Niederreiter ended Colorado’s season with a Game 7 overtime winner. In Edmonton tonight, there was just silence. Dallas got a hat trick from Joel Kiviranta, including the series-winning goal in the first overtime period to end Colorado’s season in a 5-4 heartbreaker in Game 7. For Avs fans, the way the…...

There are so many angles to Colorado’s 4-1 win in Game 6 that I could take here but I’d be lying if I tried to say the story was anything but Michael Hutchinson. It was one thing for him to get the surprise start in Game 5 and get the win. He was spotted five goals in a first period…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – A Heck of a game from Bellemare, who got the party started early in the first period and the Avs never looked back. Great play by him to one-time that across his body, and not let Bishop get set coming across. He was buzzing all night long. Andre Burakovsky – A That’s one way to stick around…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – D Bellemare’s line was fine at even strength in terms of numbers. His penalty kill work, however, was less than ideal, as he was out there for all three of Dallas’ power play goals. He even managed to toss in a penalty of his own. Andre Burakovsky – D Burky picked up a couple of assists on…...

One of those hockey sayings you hear all the time is that you can’t win a game in the first period but you can certainly lose one. Tonight was the obvious night to apply that to as the Dallas Stars came out smelling blood with their 2-1 series lead and not wanting a repeat of Game 3 where they had…...

On a day where the sports world largely pressed pause on itself beginning with the Milwaukee Bucks deciding not to play their postseason game and focus on issues back in Wisconsin, the NHL and its players largely decided to play on. “I don’t think I’d call those distractions,” Cale Makar said after the game when asked about his approach to…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B- The Avs PK had some high-effort shifts, led in part by Bellemare with some key face-off wins and some diving clears to get the puck out and get a line change. Andre Burakovsky – A I loved everything about Burakovsky’s game. He was moving his feet, carrying the puck with confidence, and most importantly, letting the…...

I don’t even know what to say. Colorado had complete control of Game 2. They were leading 2-0 and controlling play. They were in a rhythm and playing well. There was intensity, effort, everything you wanted after a team played a bad Game 1. One extremely weak slashing call on Sam Girard, followed seconds later by Corey Perry freely slashing…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – C- The fourth line was okay. They looked better with Nichushkin on it than it did with Namestnikov. Bellemare, unfortunately, lost the face-off right before the Pavelski power-play goal that changed the game. Andre Burakovsky – F Burakovsky is a shooter who had the most inopportune times refuses to shoot the puck. His pass to Compher in…...
