Cale Makar might be the best player on their team if he was with a number of teams in the NHL. With the Avs, that honor goes to MacKinnon, but when MacKinnon’s not around, the boys will play. https://youtu.be/jmQzgoGgaK8
The Avs get off their losing streak but at what cost? With the playoffs around the corner, the Avs defense has been thrown into even more turmoil as the health of Sam Girard and Ryan Graves are in question. https://youtu.be/sH1b205aQ04
The Avs pick up their fourth straight win to get Devan Dubnyk his first as an Av and continue to role through the western division with relative ease. https://youtu.be/vcjA_BYk6Yg
Something a little bit different since that game wasn’t really worth talking about. The Avs top five producers are truly something to behold. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmAsI0E8jqo
Some games have too much nonsense. This was one of them. The Avs took the high road and dominated at the parts of hockey that win you games instead of the parts that just make you look like a goon. https://youtu.be/TOfAzl8JVOE
The Avs have torn through the weaker competition in the west and stamp off on it with the destruction of the Minnesota Wild. https://youtu.be/rsZuiFSCXPU
On a night that saw the return of Cale Makar and Bowen Byram it was Mikko Rantanen once again proving he has earned a seat at the table of the elite. https://youtu.be/3XGaU5hxbvk
The Avs had the much-awaited explosion of goals everyone has been waiting for but are also facing down a glaring problem. https://youtu.be/x4yzD8VBiss
The Avs made domination of the Sharks look routine as Rantanen and Landeskog combined for four points each. Nathan MacKinnon’s health is uncertain after an unfortunate hit. https://youtu.be/agpkH04dr8k
This is the middle six the Avs are looking for. A goal-scoring spree to put some confidence in almost all of the Avs forwards as they bulldoze a sloppy Sharks team. https://youtu.be/IcJ3E0fkqF4
Bowen Byram was the spark for the Avs in the third period as Philipp Grubauer outdueled John Gibson in an overtime nail biter. https://youtu.be/kciBqU3CIZI
Despite the best efforts of Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen, the lackluster play of the Avs depth costs them what could have been a routine win. https://youtu.be/rMmpz4OR2OU
The Avs sent a message to the St. Louis Blues blowing them out of Ball Arena with ease. Led by the Three-Headed-Monster no one was safe from embarrassment as the Avs pick up their first win of the season. https://youtu.be/xGKfkcNbuLs
Mikko “The Big Moose Rantanen” is a key fixture in the Avs lineup. After an up and down season can he become an elite player this season or will he just ride the coattails of Nathan MacKinnon? https://youtu.be/fXh3eKkfsvk
The year that no one wanted is finally over. While the majority of 2020 is better left in the rearview, it wasn’t all bad on the ice. On this edition of The Tape, we look back at some of the best plays made by the Avs last season. 1. Depth dominance. We start with a little reminder that even a fourth-line…...
Avs square the series at three thanks to these three standouts (and honorable mention to Nathan MacKinnon). https://youtu.be/1vxQfRmBKkY
The three best Avs players from their close loss to the Vegas Golden Knights in the final round robin game. https://youtu.be/BX13Mk76EV8
If I wandered around the Denver metro area knocking on front doors and asking if people were familiar with Nathan MacKinnon, chances are I’d get a decent amount of “yes” responses but still enough “no” answers to make me feel inadequate at my job. If I surveyed the casual hockey landscape, however, I wouldn’t find anybody who isn’t familiar with…...
362 minutes. That’s all the Three-Headed Monster played together at five on five this season, less than 11% of the Avs total time. The reason for that obviously boils down to injuries for the most part but heading into the playoffs that should be far less of an issue. While the Avs may not go with that line all the…...
