Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – C For the second straight game, this ragtag group on the fourth line did just enough to get by, and nearly scored. Bellemare had a chance in the first period but Holden got his stick on the shot to deflect it wide of the open net. It’s not pretty, and when Stone’s line was against them, it…...

In an 82-game season with a normal schedule, there isn’t very much you could do to paint the 13th game of the season as particularly important. You’d still have about 85% of the regular season remaining and most likely would see that team again down the road, especially a division rival. Maybe you’ve noticed but we’re not in a normal…...

The Avs take on the Vegas Golden Knights in game two of their four-game set tonight. The news of the morning skate was the availability of Cale Makar, who missed Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Vegas. Head coach Jared Bednar said Makar was a game-time decision and if he doesn’t play, the lineup will be the same as Sunday. If Makar…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – C Nice to see him back in the lineup, and felt like the fourth line did completely fine considering the circumstances. Not sure he’s had the same lineups in consecutive games this year. Andre Burakovsky – D If Burky has the puck on a two on one, he should not be looking for a pass. That’s what…...

Two fun facts we learned about Jayson Megna coming into tonight’s game: He grew up in Cameron’s house from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and his father-in-law is Jim Craig. Unfortunately for the Avalanche, those fun facts were pretty much the end of the fun tonight as Colorado’s return to play fell flat in a 1-0 loss to Vegas. Marc-Andre Fleury’s…...

When you think of under-appreciated star players in Denver sports history, what names come to mind? Some would say Demaryius Thomas, Carmelo Anthony? Maybe even Gabriel Landeskog or Jon Gray? Allie Monroy ask Ryan Koengisberg, AJ Haefele, Drew Creasman, and Harrison Wind their thoughts on THE Denver Sports Podcast. Of course, Who Won the Week is also back! Join us…

Yes. Or no. End of article. Thanks for reading! Just kidding. The Avs are just 11 games into their schedule after being paused due to COVID protocols and are slated to return to practice later this week. With some time on my hands, I wanted to take a look at the curious situation playing out in Calgary with Sam Bennett.…...

For many of the Avs prospects finding ice time has continued to be a struggle throughout this pandemic plagued season. With even the best of leagues playing an on-again, off-again schedule many prospects have found themselves venturing into unusual territory just to keep themselves sharp. While a few players have had a close to normal year, many may be chalking…...

Finding a sense of logic, the NHL announced tonight that all Avalanche games through February 11 will be postponed. This comes on the heels of playing three games in four days against the Minnesota Wild, who now have seven players on the COVID protocol list. Tyson Jost was put on Colorado’s COVID protocol list last night and Gabe Landeskog followed…...

The Avs were without five regular skaters, including Nathan MacKinnon, in their third straight game against the Minnesota Wild. Missing arguably the best player in the world means having to find a new way to win games. With a gritty 2-1 win on Tuesday night, the Avs ensure they will get the best of the four-game series against Minnesota regardless…...

Andre Burakovsky – D Outside of some good defensive plays by Saad, the second line, the only line that stuck together from last game, was a non-factor overall. Burakovsky had some tough moments with the puck and overall just didn’t do much. Bowen Byram – C- Byram got bailed out pretty hard by Saad backchecking and lifting Bjugstad’s stick in…...

Here we go again. The Colorado Avalanche have one of the league’s most talented rosters top to bottom. It’s a shame that roster is so rarely able to play together because injuries have once again besieged the club. Jared Bednar, in hopes of avoiding talking about them again the rest of this week, updated the media at today’s morning skate…...

Andre Burakovsky – C Burky’s shot metrics were great, but it didn’t necessarily match up with the eye test. The puck had problems on his stick all night. Whether it was whiffing on an empty net early, whiffing on a one-timer in the third, or just overhandling the puck on the power play in the second, the puck was not…...
