Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – C I think we’ve already gotten the hint that the offense from last season just isn’t going to happen again, but he’s still doing things alright defensively, and with Compher’s line being non-existent at even strength through three games, he’s basically playing as the 3C. Matt Calvert – B+ It’s nice to see someone from the bottom…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – A- The Avs were up so much in the third that Belly was running the powerplay. That should tell you about all you need to know about this. Great game for him defensively and on the PK. Andre Burakovsky – A I mean, at this point, he should be shooting the puck, like, all the time. Goalies…...

After over four months away from the game due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you had to know the players were eager to get into a game situation after a few days of practice. On Thursday, Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar and his staff gave all the players that opportunity, separating the 30 players between two teams and letting them go…...

The Captain is back. Well…maybe. “I still haven’t had a two-goal game all year,” Landeskog deadpanned to me after morning skate on Wednesday. While that may be true, the post-All-Star break Landeskog has started to look more and more like the captain Avs fans have come to know and love since he entered the NHL in 2011. Before the All-Star…...

The universe apparently decided the Avs had been healthy for long enough.

Nazem Kadri, who has anchored the Avs second line all season and is only bested in goals on the team by Nathan MacKinnon, will be out "indefinitely" with a lower body injury. He was tangled up after a face-off in Sunday's 3-2 victory over Minnesota and twisted his right leg. After attempting to take another shift in the third period, he left the game for good. 

Now, the team will be forced to move forward without him.

In an Avalanche season highlighted by rookie sensation Cale Makar’s fearless dominance and success from all of Joe Sakic’s offseason additions, it’s easy to lose track of Nathan MacKinnon. Take last week’s 7-3 blowout of the conference-leading St. Louis Blues for example. Sam Girard clearly raised his game in an uncharacteristic four-point explosion. The newly-signed defenseman stole the night’s storyline not because he…...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – A Tying your career-high in goals and points halfway through the season isn’t a bad start to your Avs career. The goal was a little bit of a gift, but you take them any way you can get them. Important face-off win from him on the Cole goal. Andre Burakovsky – B He had a lot…...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – D Bellemare got beaten for a few pucks along the boards on the game-tying goal, as it came to him a few times and he just got it taken off his stick. In late-game situations, you just cannot have that. Andre Burakovsky – D Quiet game from Burakovsky. He had one rush up the ice in…...

Mark Barberio – D Not a good start for Barberio, as he and Lindholm spent a lot of time pinned in their own end in the first period. He tried to reverse the puck on the only Blackhawks goal, but just put too much on it and it ended up costing the Avs. I did think he settled down after…...

Mark Barberio – B I think you have to give credit to Barbs. It’s not easy to come out of the press box like he does. A lot of players are not built for that mentally. He’s come in and been steady when the team has needed too. Picked up an assist on the Nichushkin goal and nearly had his…...

Mark Barberio – C Barbs was fine tonight. Nothing special overall, and the penalty, as much as Gaudreau embellished it, was a hold. He nearly hit Rantanen backdoor for a goal late in the third but the entire Flames team laid on the puck in the crease. Pierre Edouard Bellemare – B- Solid in his own end, and kept the…...

Mark Barberio – B I really liked Barbs tonight. He kept it simple and didn’t try to do anything outside of what he’s capable of. I nice read on the Cole goal to make that pass, and I thought he stepped up his game after Makar went down with some nice zone entry denials. Pierre Edouard Bellemare – B+ “Rock…...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – B+ Bellemare and his line looked really good now that he’s got his long lost brother Matt Calvert back. They pinned the Leafs down low several times and got the Avs momentum whenever they really needed it. The scoring has normalized for Bellemare, but the solid play overall is still there. Matt Calvert – B+ Did…...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – B Outside of the delay of game late, Bellemare had a solid game overall. There was a scare with him blocking a shot but he seemed to make it okay. A dominant night in the face-off circle, winning 11 of 15. Ian Cole – A Cole has not been perfect on the penalty kill recently, but…...

Pierre Edouard Bellemare – C+ Bellemare was fairly invisible for the most part, I just had two memories of him in this one, one good and one bad. The bad was the penalty 200 feet from his own net. Those are tough ones to swallow. The good was a beautiful shot block on Patrick Kane alone in the slot after…...
