The Avs drop their first game of the playoffs to level their second-round series at 1 – 1 against the St. Louis Blues. With poor execution and a lack of urgency, this needs to be the Avs floor if they want to contend for the cup. https://youtu.be/hoTIHdoK6H8
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
The Avs started the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a bang dropping seven goals on the Nashville Predators and confirming the plan all along was to come out and dominate in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. https://youtu.be/ILOBY-Y-ilg
The Avs were let down mostly by their defense and goaltending in a game that was actually kind of a banger. Ultimately it was the Avs top guns that made the fatal mistake and that’s a tough pill to swallow. https://youtu.be/W5G4yjg7xfU
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
A nine goal in a game where Landeskog was a hard ten. The Avs ability to outscore their problems is always a threat and when their stars are at their best most games are no contest. https://youtu.be/caY7PtRn1TE
I was asked during a little mini-interview pre-game, “why is this game important?”, and truthfully I was really tempted to look right at the camera and say “it’s not”. Obviously, I didn’t say that, your boy is a professional and that’s show biz, baby, but that was how it felt coming into it. The Colorado Avalanche has a 12-point lead…...
The Avs ability to consistently make even decent NHL teams look like routine wins should stand as a statement about how good Colorado really is. A game led by the forward core felt like a refreshing break for the Avs defense. https://youtu.be/rwbyauNpzRY
A 2 – 0 win in a quality, complete game from both teams is just another notch in the Avs and Darcy Kuempers belt. Even against top-quality competition, the Avs high-end talent cannot be stopped. https://youtu.be/NMvXOUaeW4I
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
Woah baby, talk about a heavyweight tilt. I mean seriously, who wouldn’t want seven games of what we saw tonight? Tonight’s game between the Colorado Avalanche and the two-time defending Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lighting is one that I personally have had circled on my calendar for a while now, and I think it would be safe to say…...
The Avs make it 10 straight wins as they cruise past buffalo in an easy one where talent was the key difference. At this point, any problems this team has are easy to overlook. https://youtu.be/XtbK5qlsU-4
Full disclosure: this game was a little bit of a disappointment for me. The Colorado Avalanche came into this game against the lowly Buffalo Sabres with a chance to extend their winning streak to 10 straight games, and an opportunity to push their home winning streak to an absurd 18 consecutive wins. While they did eventually do all of that,…...
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
Earlier this week the Colorado Avalanche played back-to-back games in southern California to cap off a two-game road trip, and the word that was most often used to describe the way they played in those two games was “tired”. Those were the team’s sixth and seventh games within 11 days, including three sets of back-to-backs, so it was easy to…...
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
A twelve-point night with five goals including a hat trick from the three-headed monster is enough to strike fear into the strongest defensive teams. All three players are capable of changing a game in an instant. https://youtu.be/yQIN6IVZ86c
Two nights ago, when the Colorado Avalanche beat the Chicago Blackhawks in an overtime thriller, we talked on the DNVR Avalanche Postgame Show about how the Avs have been impressive this season in their ability to win in a variety of different games and situations. Well, that was on display again tonight. After a back and forth first period that…...
This morning during media availability, everyone who came to the podium was asked about the rivalry that so many say is one of, if not *the* best rivalry in the history of sports. Each one of them, including Darren Helm who played 14 seasons on the other side of this matchup, said that it wasn’t something that they thought about,…...
