This game had such an interesting feel to it starting at morning skate.  On one hand, you had the Colorado Avalanche, who were rested, and sitting comfortably atop the Central Division. Their main focus the rest of the way is fine tuning the details of their game as the postseason approaches.  On the other, the Los Angeles Kings. Playing for...

Hockey sure is easy when you score all the goals in the game, isn’t it? For the second straight game, the Avalanche rolled to a 3-0 shutout as the skaters for Colorado took a patient approach with a very banged up Los Angeles Kings roster and waited for mistakes to shake loose and then pounce. That’s exactly how this played...

No Nathan MacKinnon, no problem, apparently. With the Avalanche coming into tonight’s game with everything from being the third seed to possibly clinching the President’s Trophy on the line, no MacKinnon was looming over everything. How would Colorado do without the driver of its offensive engine? Uh, well, just fine as it turns out as the Avs won 6-0 in...

Last night, the Avalanche toppled the Kings with a 3-2 win that was driven by a number of young players coming into their own. It was a validation of Colorado’s draft and development program, something that has been very hit-or-miss over the years. Tonight’s 3-2 win over Los Angeles by the Avs is a good example of how different things...

If you hopped into a time machine and traveled back to draft night in 2016 and watched the Avs select Tyson Jost with the 10th pick and then came back to 2021 without any knowledge of what happened in that time, seeing the Avs start the game with Jost centering Gabe Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen would not have been a...

I don’t want y’all to think I’m getting lazy over here or anything but the Avs just keep playing games that look like the previous ones but they’ve improved the results four straight games. From a regulation loss where they dominated to an overtime win where they dominated, then to essentially a 1-0 shutout win where they dominated, today was...

So, here’s the deal. The Avs just played their third straight game that looked exactly the same but with a little variety in the results. They’ve progressively gotten a little better as they went from losing in regulation to the Coyotes, then beating them in overtime, to beating the Los Angeles Kings tonight in regulation. The 2-0 win was Philipp...

The way winning always papers over flaws is one of the more charming aspects of sports to me. When the outcome is what you set out to achieve, how you got there ends up being a justified journey, even if it wasn’t perfect. See Tuesday night’s win against Los Angeles as a good example of that for the Avalanche. They...
