The Vegas Knights announced that Robin Lehner will miss all next season. What will that mean for the Knights and the rest of the Western Conference? Also, the fellas answer your burning questions about the Avalanche, themselves, and everything else you ask them. Join AJ, Jesse, and Meghan as they discuss all things hockey on today’s show.
The Avs are in the Stanley Cup Final. That pretty much sums it up until the final round begins. https://youtu.be/eEUj3MkQJSM
The Colorado Avalanche are going to the Stanley Cup Final. When I first started covering the team during the 2016-2017 season, I never ever would have thought I’d be typing those words just five years later. This group… the resilience they’ve shown all playoffs, the adversity they’ve had to overcome all season, and their will to win has gotten to…...
The Avs take a 2 – 0 series lead in what was probably the best executed game of the playoffs for far for Colorado. The 2nd line and the backup goaltender bother showed out in the game of twos. https://youtu.be/Iia4JKRfAnk
Less than a week to go in the NHL season, and that just means the storylines around the league are getting more and more interesting. A wild game on Sunday night, another great player calls it a career, and the Avs stumble down the stretch causing some to be concerned. Ryan Getzlaf hangs ‘em up Ryan Getzlaf officially called it…...
All offense all the time in the battle of the forces of nature. The Avs clinch the Western Conference as they score another touchdown in a game that saw every line score at least one goal. https://youtu.be/5iLudCHD1zo
Sometimes a whole bunch of hockey talent is fun to watch, and even shorthanded by injuries they have plenty of talent. With an impressive ability to respond the Avs win round one of the battle of Cole Harbour. https://youtu.be/c97Ime4E8dY
In a tough loss that likely spells the end of any playoff contention hopes the Sharks fall short against the best team in the west despite a heroic performance from Tomas Hertl to keep it interesting. https://youtu.be/_8aL4gWY9ec
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…...
For the first time in a while, it felt like the Avs found a way to lose a hockey game they should have won. With critical defensive mistakes and terribly timed penalties, this is one where the issues are obvious. https://youtu.be/pfnW87q92yA
There is a very strong argument that the Avs deserved to win this game anyway but at the end of the day Nazem Kadri got away with a no-call that ultimately led to the game-winning goal in overtime. https://youtu.be/oYgM9s2aFN0
With special teams finding their step once again the Avs make any opponent with any style seem trivial. With the roster in flux, Mikko Rantanen is showing he can step it up if he wants to. https://youtu.be/8TZeiPIwjk8
Without Gabe Landeskog and Sam Girard in the lineup that just means more room for the other Avs stars to shine. With Nathan MacKinnon leading the way anything feels possible for Colorado. https://youtu.be/c75ODce1gQA
It had been over a week since I was last at an Avalanche game, since I didn’t make the multi-stop trip back East for the three-game road trip, and it was so nice to be back in the building. Coincidentally, the last time the Colorado Avalanche were at home, it was against these very same Calgary Flames in what was…...
Regardless of the context, blowing a three-goal lead is something that should never happen, full stop. It’s a fate the Avs had managed to avoid up to this point but they finally had to pay the piper. https://youtu.be/u_EXy7kecoA
The Avs get the two points and that’s almost certainly the only thing anyone not named Tage Thompson is going to remember about this game. The Avs exerted the minimum effort required to get the W. https://youtu.be/UGAuOO4k1LQ
A 2 – 0 win in a quality, complete game from both teams is just another notch in the Avs and Darcy Kuempers belt. Even against top-quality competition, the Avs high-end talent cannot be stopped. https://youtu.be/NMvXOUaeW4I
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,…...
