A low effort loss for the Avs was bound to happen as the stretch run has little meaning left in it for Colorado. With a start as late as this one it almost felt like a sleepwalking fever dream. https://youtu.be/ijPqTKZcSiY
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
The Avs continue to make winning look easy against the weaker teams in the west, with top-end talent that other teams just can’t handle most nights don’t require maximum effort. https://youtu.be/RhEdZExNhiw
Regardless of the context, blowing a three-goal lead is something that should never happen, full stop. It’s a fate the Avs had managed to avoid up to this point but they finally had to pay the piper. https://youtu.be/u_EXy7kecoA
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
The Avs made short work of the Dallas Stars so everyone could get on with their big Sunday plans. It’s tough to find any faults in Colorado’s play for this one. https://youtu.be/tbhF9wJou5o
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
As the Colorado Avalanche continue to make history with their home winning streak it’s starting to feel like the team has that special something surrounding them this year. https://youtu.be/1SrQ6WiNvaA
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...
A four-assist night from Mikko Rantanen keeps the Leafs and 4 – 1 forever entwined with disaster. A game that will likely be one of the best comebacks of the decade for the Avalanche. https://youtu.be/Z53dVVZEIcE
Cale Makar was always seen as having elite potential as a hockey player but the journey there and incredibly rapid ascent to greatness is a story worth deep diving. https://youtu.be/eGOiFOegx80
Cale Makar was already a household name in the hockey world but with an incredible moment on the national stage, he could be starting to become even more than that. The hype is real. https://youtu.be/9Noz2I4EBmI
As Colorado’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks developed tonight, there were plenty of interesting storylines that seemed to take center stage for a time. First, the Avs jumped all over the Hawks and built a 2-0 lead after a dominant first period that could have been 3-0 without an excellent save from Marc-Andre Fleury to stonewall Tyson Jost on the...
The Avs mark their third quality win against a good team in the last four. As the top forwards find their groove the Avs continue to get quality scoring from their depth options even with a weakened defense. https://youtu.be/8Y_nCUmvJhI
A few seasons ago, when the Colorado Avalanche was first on the rise, there was a game played in Denver against the Washington Capitals. The Capitals were at the height of their competitiveness as Stanley Cup contenders, and many touted this game as a can’t miss matchup between an up and coming team, and a true contender. I remember watching...
Maybe the Avs can just outscore all of their problems. In a game where even the goalie is getting points, if it’s not broke don’t fix it. The sustainability remains highly in doubt but take it while it lasts. https://youtu.be/M01etai1C0k
Woo boy, ok. That game left me feeling like I need a cigarette, and I don’t smoke. But, as the old saying goes, any time you can start your organization’s fourth goalie and still win, you’ll take it. No? Is that not a saying? Well, it is now, because I said it. The Colorado Avalanche won 7-5 on a night...
