The Avs are starting to make blowouts routine with another 5 goal game. The offensive confidence seems to be on the rise throughout the entire forward core and Cale and Naz can’t stop, won’t stop. https://youtu.be/Ejk3bMzx_Fs
The Avs won and that may be the only tangible thing you can take from this hockey game where up was down and left was right. A fun experience but not a sensical one. https://youtu.be/U37ZcAtGpFU
Jack Johnson – (C-) He was fine. Nothing egregious, but didn’t really contribute much. Eric Johnson – (D) HIs decision-making has been questionable, at best recently, and honestly it was more of the same tonight. He’s just not great with the puck on his stick anymore. Devon Toews – (B+) Don’t know how many times you can say it, Toews…...
The Avs finally win a game that doesn’t qualify as a blowout, and while it was full of flaws the Avs completed the job they were tasked with and now sit on a winning streak. https://youtu.be/qZKTT5rWdIs
A determined victory against a desperate team? Another win where the Avs just scrape by an inferior opponent? One more nail in the coffin of the Travis Green era in Vancouver? Another blown Avalanche lead? A third-period comeback victory? It seems to me that whatever angle you want to view the Colorado Avalanche’s 4-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks in,…...
The Avs make it two in a row as they handle the San Jose Sharks off the back of elite performances from Sam Girard and Nazem Kadri. While there is still plenty left to prove for the Avs the step in the right direction is now obvious. https://youtu.be/fD9NN3bt1n0
It has become unclear who the Colorado Avalanche are this season. What is clear is right now they are not playing particularly well. Answers have to come internally. https://youtu.be/1xs5FFUCQB4
A four point night from Gabe Landeskog made it easy for the Avs to get back to .500 against Minnesota. As the Avs continue to make progress playing better hockey, key pieces are coming into form. https://youtu.be/ZDBeJ469gfA
The Avs take down the previously undefeated Blues in dominant fashion as they start to see the depth scoring figure it out. In a game full of nonsense the scoreboard is maybe the least interesting thing about this game. https://youtu.be/WCbax-dM9nc
Bowen Byram announced his presence to the entire NHL as the Avs dominated Chicago in the opening game of the season. No MacKinnon no problem as the Avs top six and defense provided more than enough scoring for Darcy Kuemper. https://youtu.be/qDRbtJYgUcg
With two spots virtually set in stone on the Avs second line, Colorado is going to need everything they can get out of Nazem Kadri and Andre Burakovsky. The one remaining spot may just fall to the hand of the least experienced player on the roster. https://youtu.be/T7o5nIr4kEk
The NHL’s Department of Player Safety announced today the eight-game suspension of Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri. The hit came in the third period of Colorado’s 6-3 Game 2 win over the St. Louis Blues as he was penalized for an illegal check to the head of Blues defenseman Justin Faulk. Kadri was given a major and a match penalty for…...
For the first time this season, the Avs complete the comeback and take home a win. The offense won the day as the Avs saw goal scoring come from multiple forwards who desperately needed them. https://youtu.be/1hb60mc3OAM
The Avs had the much-awaited explosion of goals everyone has been waiting for but are also facing down a glaring problem. https://youtu.be/x4yzD8VBiss
The Avs’ second line shines as they finally break out of goal scoring and jail. This team looks capable of taking on all comers when the puck is going in. https://youtu.be/g4X5y58CDZY
A three-point night from Nazem Kadri and goals from key contributors Rantanen and Burakovsky made for what should have been an easy win for the Avs. When you are playing a third-string goaltender sometimes things get spooky. https://youtu.be/7kVaTZOQVf8
Goalies, man. They’re weird, unpredictable creatures even in the best of times. If you look at the numbers right now, goaltenders with a save percentage under .900 include Sergei Bobrovsky, Braden Holtby, Tuukka Rask, Carey Price, Robin Lehner, Carter Hart, and Ilya Sorokin. That’s a lot of hardware and two of the brightest young goaltenders in the game today. Even…...
The secondary scorers come through in the clutch as Avs take a big two points from the Vegas Golden Knights. https://youtu.be/N5TyfB6cAlg
The Avs second line pulled some ninja magic late in the game to help the Avs overcome five posts and take down their first series win of the season. https://youtu.be/dEiwPTs8XBs
For the second straight game, it was a high-profile Av getting the proverbial monkey off his back to lead the Avs to victory. Two nights ago, it was Brandon Saad leading the Avs to victory as he enjoyed a two-goal effort. Tonight, his linemate Nazem Kadri enjoyed a three-point third period as relentless Avalanche pressure finally broke through on a…...
