I’ll be honest. I don’t even really know where to start on this one. Every game is its own miniature story and tonight the story is really just one about a team that keeps winning. Just when it appeared they were getting close to 100%, Nazem Kadri was listed as out. We don’t really know what the injury is there…...

Life comes at you fast. There is no place where this is truer than the world of sports, where a career’s accomplishments mean nothing on any given night and you allow yourself to believe in the possibility of seeing something you don’t expect. Such was the case tonight when the Avalanche made a stop in Toronto to take on the…...

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.…...

Division games are always statement games. Coming into today’s afternoon affair, Colorado had struggled with the teams in front of them in the Central Division but had taken care of its limited business against the teams chasing them. Following a 5-2 win against the lowly Chicago Blackhawks, the Avs move to 3-1 on the season against the teams currently in…...

Ain’t nobody out there likes getting embarrassed. It’s a humiliating experience no matter how many people see it. But it’s especially humiliating when you do it on television in front of thousands of viewers. The last time the Avs and Oilers tangled, that’s exactly what happened to Colorado as they got bombarded in a 6-2 waxing that saw Connor McDavid…...

“We have to play a full 60 minutes.” One of hockey’s most-repeated cliches is all about how teams have to play a full game in order to come out with the win. But the dirty secret is that it isn’t really true at all. Tonight was another example of that as the Toronto Maple Leafs played a very effective 18…...

MINNEAPOLIS – Every year in every sport, there’s a team whose grand offseason plans are cast aside by the cruelty of plain bad luck. Injuries are a natural part of competitive sports and every year they seem to hone in specifically on a small number of teams while otherwise leaving others alone. To start this year, the injury bug burrowed…

Let’s try this again. I tried writing about Colorado’s new guys and what a difference they were making this season but the end of the Vancouver game changed pretty drastically and I had to CTRL+A <—- that sucker so here we are again. With injuries to nearly half of Colorado’s regular forward corps, the Avs were once again carried by…...

Sports justice is one of those things that sometimes you have to wait years for. As a Kansas basketball fan, nothing was more cathartic than watching the Jayhawks blow out their former head coach who had stabbed them in the back and left them in the lurch after the 2003 season. It was perfect sports karma but we had to…...
