When Colorado went through that mid-season slump, the entire point of it became to turn it around before it got too late in the year. Neither goaltender had stepped up and really played like a starting goaltender after essentially skipping December and January.

The Colorado Avalanche bounced back from yesterday’s 7-0 beatdown with a blowout win of their own at home against the Chicago Blackhawks. How did each of the players do? To the grades! Sven Andrighetto (A) – I dinged Andrighetto for not producing with the talent around him. Somehow he gets partnered up next to Duchene and Grimaldi and goes off. Go…...

“It’s going to be completely different and we’re going to come back tomorrow and bounce back.” That was Colorado Avalanche captain Gabe Landeskog Friday night following the team’s embarrassing 7-0 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights. It was a good quote and what the captain of a team should say. Too frequently in recent years, however, the team had only…...

Two or three more inches and Rocco Grimaldi would have been an NHL goal-scorer Tuesday night, on the one-year anniversary from the last time he could call himself one. On April 4, 2016, Grimaldi scored two goals for the Florida Panthers against Toronto, but, counting the ugly get-ups of the Panthers, he has worn three pro hockey uniforms since.…...

On the docket tomorrow… time spent eating copious amounts of turkey, sweet potatoes, and stuffing with family. A monumental reason to be thankful. The theme of this week’s BSN Central Division Power Rankings is recognizing what each team in the division can be thankful for, as we head into the holiday season. 1. DALLAS STARS Current Record: 17-5-0 (34 points)…...

The first month of any hockey season figures to see most teams establishing an identity, evaluating new personnel, and allowing players to settle into their roles. Believe it or not, we are nearly 20% of the way through the regular season schedule for 2015-16, and most teams have a pretty firm handle on the type of hockey club they…...

The month of October has flown by, just like the Colorado Avalanche’s playoff hopes this season. Too snarky before November has even hit? Perhaps… The Central Division is humming along nicely, and not much has changed in regards to my opinion of the strength of this division since our last edition of Central Division power rankings, two weeks ago.

(Click Here for Full Size Image) As teams settled into the salary cap era, the league slowly transitioned into what it is today.
