The Avs find another way to collapse despite a two-goal lead, multiple soft goals from Francouz, and some major defensive weaknesses betrayed a quality game from Mikko Rantanen and Sam Girard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nD8c2ki74Q
Wins are starting to look routine, getting the usual scoring from players like Mikko Rantanen and Val Nichushkin in your top six is a solid base. Add in-depth scoring from Andrew Cogliano and Brad Hunt and you’ve got something cooking. Back it up with a rock-solid goalie performance from Alexandar Georgiev and that’s a W. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgCMJ_OjKk8
Even without Cale Makar the Avs can come out and take it to any team in the league. The two Finns have led the way for Colorado over what is now a winning streak. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uU2mogSB7Oo
Seven goals including multi-goal performances from Rantanen, Lehkonen, and Newhook lead the Avs to their biggest win of the season. Finally a spark of life inside an organization that has been on the struggle bus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JduGQnRgESg
The Avalanche seem to have finally hit their boiling point in an implosion loss to the Vancouver Canucks. It’s plain for everyone to see that it needs to be better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzXslKWQLuo
The Colorado Avalanche came out of the Christmas break on their heels, and let a weaker Arizona team get the better of them. With critical issues in their own zone they never had a chance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CED5Z3uh4_Y
Some days you are the moose, some days you get moosed. Today Mikko was the big moose. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meZEBfRgc90
Could the Nathan MacKinnon injury be the final nail in the coffin for an Avs team that just cannot stay healthy? It certainly was for this game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdJgd0aFMjI
There’s always a fun vibe in the air when you’re at Ball Arena for a Colorado Avalanche game the night before a major holiday. I can’t really describe it, but it’s kind of like the energy that everyone had for a “last day of school” assembly. Add in the fact that the Avs were coming into their matchup with the…...
This Avs loss was not for lack of opportunity but Colorado certainly lacked finish as one too many chances got away from them in a game you could argue they played better than St. Louis in most categories. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSE_-3NrxCE
Cale Makar is back on his BS as the Avs top guns are looking like an all-star team that cannot be stopped. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPn-rGBlVsQ
With such a crazy schedule, we didn’t have time to get some of the photos we took posted. This will be somewhat of a living document over the next week or so as we add to it from our travels to Tampere and beyond!...
The Avs get their first overseas win in team history as Mikko Rantanen scores a hat trick on home soil. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9Mc4gn90Vc
After spotting the Jets a two-goal lead the Avs simultaneously feel lucky to have gotten a point and disappointed that they left one on the table. For a loss, this one is easy to take positives out of. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv_MORmknLE
The Avs drop their first game of the season in an all but guaranteed schedule loss to the Flames. While there is certainly room for improvement there’s nothing to be concerned about given the scenario and even a few positives to take from this one. https://youtu.be/9R_kGT3xA9Q
With the Avs season set to begin tomorrow, the Avs top-6 has seen some major changes but is still led by its core staples. Can MacKinnon, Rantanen, and Landeskog turn the Avs into a dynasty? https://youtu.be/UQs-Jpmk4mQ
The Avs close out the preseason with a roster representative of what they will field when it counts and outside of some obvious rust in the chemistry department they look ready to slay. https://youtu.be/kds1QCWgGdA
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?

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…...
