Despite Cale Makar being a transcendent talent and great play out Devon Toews and at times Bowen Byram, the Avs defense wasn’t enough to get them out of the first round, but was it their fault? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=La3EqjxW6NM
Better late than never. The Colorado Avalanche finally showed up to the series starting with the second period of this game. Led by Artturi Lehkonen, Val Nichushkin, and Devon Toews the Avs make it a series against the Kraken. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kP0u7x_DaTA
A night full of mistakes with even Colorado’s only goal coming from Mikko Rantanen whiffing. If this isn’t the floor Colorado could be in serious trouble VS Seattle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Br4EDTSI1M
Sidney Crosby remains one of the few NHL Centers that isn’t just an automatic to take Nathan MacKinnon over. A tough night for anyone not named JT Compher leads Colorado to a loss. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptJsU70wOIg
Today was certainly not the Avs’ day, a game in which they were never really competitive due to poor defense and goaltending. They simply need more from the likes of Cale Makar, Devon Toews, and Alexandar Georgiev. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhYXdcWT8Ns
The few pieces the Avs have seen return to health have been enough to get them playing winning hockey. Lehkonen’s versatility in the top six led the Avs to finally get some varied scoring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29Y377Iy4pQ
It’s hard to argue against the Avs’ defense as the best in the league and somehow they may be poised to have an even better season than the last. With pieces like Byram and Girard ready to ascend it could become one of the greatest defenses ever. https://youtu.be/UX_9v7_9xAo
The Avs are in the Stanley Cup Final. That pretty much sums it up until the final round begins. https://youtu.be/eEUj3MkQJSM
There aren’t a lot of moments in hockey I can earnestly say I’ll never forget. Kadri’s hat trick in this game has absolutely earned that status. The Avs continue to finish business taking a 3 – 1 series lead back home for Game 5. https://youtu.be/I1E8EbAc4_o
Despite a scary moment with Darcy Kuemper the Avs continue to make the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs look routine. With Gabe Landeskog leading the way Nashville is unable to keep up. https://youtu.be/eVbFe7C5ogg

Sometimes a whole bunch of hockey talent is fun to watch, and even shorthanded by injuries they have plenty of talent. With an impressive ability to respond the Avs win round one of the battle of Cole Harbour. https://youtu.be/c97Ime4E8dY
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
Sometimes games get away from you. The Avs drop a winnable one against the Arizona Coyotes but it’s a good reminder that there are two teams on the ice trying to win every night. https://youtu.be/OSxlgzMwa7Q
We talked on the DNVR Avalanche pregame show about how there was an expectation that the Colorado Avalanche would come out looking for some revenge after having their franchise record-setting home win streak come to an end at the hands of these very same Arizona Coyotes. It’s easy to look at this matchup and think, “oh yeah, this will be…...
The Avs lean on defensive production to notch their 11th comeback win of the season on a night where the high-end talent was on full display. Even when trailing in the third period the expectation is starting to become that the Avs will win. https://youtu.be/_2RP_Cnbjls
Regardless of the result, this game was endlessly annoying. Ok, maybe not “endlessly”, that third period was pretty awesome for the Colorado Avalanche, but they had to battle through it a bit to get there. There were a lot of really cool, fun storylines that surrounded this game, so that’s where I’m going to start, but what we saw on…...
The Avs kick off the post All-Star break stretch with a statement win in a game that showed off some of the best the NHL has to offer. With Elite goaltending getting them across the finish line the Avs may finally be at their best. https://youtu.be/evdRQoZkjIQ
2022 appears to be the year of the comeback as the Avs do it in the third period for the fourth time in five games. Nazem Kadri being the critical piece to the puzzle for Colorado this time. https://youtu.be/H4k470dEJ1A
