After the Colorado Avalanche absolutely stole one from the Carolina Hurricanes last Thursday, we, mentioned on the podcast that all the Avs needed to do right now was go .500 on the road. Given all of the injuries to key players, the best and easiest way for the Avs to keep their head above water is to continue to stay…

The Stanley Cup was in the building tonight, and the crowd wanted to see it. Unfortunately for the fans, and more so the Colorado Avalanche, the greatest trophy in sports never emerged from its case.  It was a really hard-fought game from the first puck drop. The Tampa Bay Lightning were fighting for their lives, and the Colorado Avalanche were…...

Whew. That game was… well it was something.  Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals kicked off Tuesday night in Denver and it was one to remember. The Colorado Avalanche held on to claim a 8-6 win over the Edmonton Oilers in a fast-paced, wide-open thriller of a hockey game.  There’s so much to get into in this one that…...

They say that the fourth and final win you need to close out a Stanley Cup Playoff series is the hardest one to get, and the Colorado Avalanche got a good reminder of that as they were looking to put the Nashville Predators in the rearview mirror and move on to Round 2. It was a tentative crowd inside Bridgestone…...

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…...

With the Colorado Avalanche having the type of season that they have had, we talk a lot about looking for certain things in their games. We’re paying more attention to the process, rather than the results.  Fortunately, the results have been great. The process, while I wouldn’t say that it’s ever been “bad”, has had some ups and downs at…...

I sent a tweet put earlier this week being a little tongue and cheek, talking about how dependent the Minnesota Wild were on Kirill Kaprizov to produce offense. That got me thinking, who is THE guy for every team? Who is the player that each team looks to in a big moment to come through for them?  https://twitter.com/jessemontano_/status/1508230844875350020?s=20&t=oP1SybBvb-I7MyNh_zHVBw That’s the…...

The trade deadline is behind us, and NHL teams are now sprinting to the finish. Plenty to go over now that all the trade rumors are done, so let’s get into it. Dadonov saga  Ok ok, I promise this will be the last time I bring this up, but this has maybe been the most interesting storyline of the season…...

Two nights ago in Denver, I wrote about the game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Vancouver Canucks that Jared Bednar described as “safe.” That was a nicer way of how most people described about it. Many chose words more like boring, or snoozer. Well, tonight’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers was the exact opposite.  Philadelphia was, for the second…...

Wow. Just…wow. Truth be told, I hated the first 40 minutes of this game. It had nothing to do with the score, it was just ugly hockey. The last 20+ minutes, however, were among the most electric we’ve seen this season. That is at least if you’re a member of the Colorado Avalanche and its fan base. For the Toronto…...

Jack Johnson – (INC)  Jack Johnson left half way through the game with a lower-body injury, and did not return. He didn’t have much of an impact when he was in the game. Incomplete for ol’ JJ tonight. Bowen Byram – C- We talked about him in the DNVR Avalanche Pregame Show in terms of what the expectations were for…...

“They just look unstoppable.” That’s what a member of the traveling Anaheim media said to me, in reference to the Colorado Avalanche, about halfway through the second period of what eventually became a 5-2 drubbing of the Anaheim Ducks. And he was right. The Avalanche looked like they were just a flat-out better hockey team than the early-season surprise Anaheim…...

It’s not often that a team can insert five healthy players into the lineup from one game to the next, but the Avs may be doing just that on Saturday against Vegas. After a short practice to test out the digs outdoors at Lake Tahoe ahead of the game on Saturday, Avs coach Jared Bednar announced that all of the…...

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…...
