Funny what a couple of years can do in the NHL. It wasn’t that long ago that Joe Sakic was in the shadow of the impetuous attitude of Patrick Roy, his former teammate back during their glory-filled playing day. Their management structure didn’t last long and yielded almost disastrous results. Their parting of ways left their pet project, the Colorado…...

The top line gave the Avs a chance to win, but they couldn’t get it done. https://youtu.be/V0XQdmVSm2Y
It must be some kind of mutation for Rantanen to have a backhand like that. https://youtu.be/N24QmY2kntk
I’m a sucker for love stories. Movies, songs, and apparently hockey ones, too. I’m all about them. In the last two years, the Avalanche has enjoyed watching the Nathan MacKinnon-Mikko Rantanen connection blossom into something special. It’s been the kind of connection that makes you believe something bigger might be in store down the road. This year, the rosy-cheeked Cale…...

Regular seasons have 82 games in them but there are always a couple that stick out as particularly memorable. With the Avalanche walking into St. Louis and temporary bragging rights about who sits atop the Central Division on the line, tonight was destined to be one of those games. The Blues are the defending Stanley Cup champions and have been…...

While I haven’t been covering the Avalanche for as long as some of my colleagues, this being my fifth year in action on the beat means I’ve been to several hundred games in that time and have been inside a few locker rooms. One of the things I notice the most about this year’s Avalanche team is the locker room.…...

DALLAS – A crash was always coming. But after a 7-0-1 start, the Avalanche will wake up on November 6 and find themselves at 8-5-2 following their fifth straight loss, a 4-1 decision at the Dallas Stars. “A stretch like this sucks either way,” Erik Johnson said. “I don’t care what our record was to start the year. It’s no…...
