Despite a scary moment with Darcy Kuemper the Avs continue to make the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs look routine. With Gabe Landeskog leading the way Nashville is unable to keep up. https://youtu.be/eVbFe7C5ogg
The Avs overcome Connor Ingram playing incredibly well and take down the Nashville Predators in OT to go up 2 – 0 in the series. An exceptionally well-played game finished by an exceptional player. https://youtu.be/T4W4nbaTizM
The Avs started the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a bang dropping seven goals on the Nashville Predators and confirming the plan all along was to come out and dominate in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. https://youtu.be/ILOBY-Y-ilg
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
The Avs brought their A-game and the Kings had no choice but to cede power to the dominant force. For Cale Makar, this game good have larger implications when it comes to season-ending awards. https://youtu.be/Vg-QsrBAFqQ
Despite a lack of offensive punch the Avs found a way to survive the Edmonton onslaught and pull out a W in the shootout entirely thanks to Darcy Kuemper and Nathan MacKinnon. When those two are at their best it’s all the Avs need. https://youtu.be/YPG3-TmBu0w
As the Avs offense continues to gear back up it allows them to get away with some suspect defense and goaltending. Plus having a Cale Makar up your sleeve is basically a cheat code. https://youtu.be/bOOMRl7czn4
We are dropping this a day later than usual, so we’d have the prop lines for the Avalanche – Pittsburgh showdown this afternoon. Let’s just jump in and start with that game. Colorado -1.5 (+155) vs Pittsburgh These teams are set to meet for two straight with the Avalanche flying to Pittsburgh to kick off their road trip Tuesday night.…...
The Colorado Avalanche are taking on the Calgary Flames tonight, but Nathan MacKinnon will be out. Will Nazem Kadri step up and make us the money that MacKinnon usually does? Ryan Koenigsberg thinks he will. Sweet boy Henry Chisholm of the DNVR Buffs beat thinks that the money is in NBA basketball. Join the fellas as they go through it…
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
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
Two goals and a three-point night from Cale Makar leads the Avs in a win that was much stronger than the final score indicates. Back to business as usual for Colorado as they remain on top of the league. https://youtu.be/3BKhuPN_V5E
The Avs were let down mostly by their defense and goaltending in a game that was actually kind of a banger. Ultimately it was the Avs top guns that made the fatal mistake and that’s a tough pill to swallow. https://youtu.be/W5G4yjg7xfU
The Avs lean on defensive production to notch their 11th comeback win of the season on a night where the high-end talent was on full display. Even when trailing in the third period the expectation is starting to become that the Avs will win. https://youtu.be/_2RP_Cnbjls
Regardless of the result, this game was endlessly annoying. Ok, maybe not “endlessly”, that third period was pretty awesome for the Colorado Avalanche, but they had to battle through it a bit to get there. There were a lot of really cool, fun storylines that surrounded this game, so that’s where I’m going to start, but what we saw on…...
Sometimes you don’t have to play well for very long to win a game. The Avs needed less than 30 seconds to flip this game on its head and escape Vegas with a W. The Avs quick-strike potential should terrify every team in the league. https://youtu.be/ZxKQxOaB8xc
A nine goal in a game where Landeskog was a hard ten. The Avs ability to outscore their problems is always a threat and when their stars are at their best most games are no contest. https://youtu.be/caY7PtRn1TE
I was asked during a little mini-interview pre-game, “why is this game important?”, and truthfully I was really tempted to look right at the camera and say “it’s not”. Obviously, I didn’t say that, your boy is a professional and that’s show biz, baby, but that was how it felt coming into it. The Colorado Avalanche has a 12-point lead…...
