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,…...
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
The Avs are right back to chaotic hockey as they manage to squeak a point out of Ottawa. With problems hitting them before the game even began the uphill battle was not made any easier by the reffing but the loss still ultimately falls on the Avs own faults. https://youtu.be/Rb14_GPQEdo
Mikko Rantanen drops a hat trick in a four-point night as the Avs get right back on track against the Nashville Predators. Bowen Byram’s return to the lineup also plays a critical role in the game. https://youtu.be/ZBlfqPkyh-w
“April First. The day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four.” – Mark Twain On April Fool’s Day 2021, the Atlanta Braves played a bit of a goof on their fanbase, losing their season opener in extra innings at the Phillies. They laid on for good measure – just to make…...
A four point night from Gabe Landeskog made it easy for the Avs to get back to .500 against Minnesota. As the Avs continue to make progress playing better hockey, key pieces are coming into form. https://youtu.be/ZDBeJ469gfA
In danger of dropping four of their first five, the Avs big guns came to play in Tampa Bay. In the end, it was Cale Makar showing up with the pressure on in the shootout to get the job done for Colorado. https://youtu.be/fvMzD17svgU
The Three-Headed-Monster could be poised for one of the best years of hockey seen in a long, long, time. Will the Era of Mikko arrive? Will MacKinnon finally break 100 points? Who is even capable of stopping this line? All that and more in the top line season preview. https://youtu.be/Rq4g2BdPav4
For the first time since 2001 the Avs have swept a playoff opponent. That will hopefully stand as just accomplishment number one as the push through the playoffs this season. https://youtu.be/ow96eqfr-zs
The Avs start the playoffs on the right foot crushing the Blues 4 – 1 in game one. Gabe Landeskog shows his versatility as a leader providing everything the Avs need from scoring to grit and leading by example. https://youtu.be/1Ekl4D_9RII
The Avs took care of business against the LA Kings off a strong performance from their high-end defensemen. Gabe Landeskog had some choice words for Brendan Lemieux. https://youtu.be/KubRgnaxGDs
