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
For the first time in a while, it felt like the Avs found a way to lose a hockey game they should have won. With critical defensive mistakes and terribly timed penalties, this is one where the issues are obvious. https://youtu.be/pfnW87q92yA
With the Avs big stars finally having a night where they just can’t find the back of the net it exposes just how little impact the bottom six has on the offensive side of the puck. https://youtu.be/7u–CeF4Wls
When Colorado Avalanche head coach Jared Bedar spoke after morning skate earlier today, he mentioned that it was good for the Avs to have a stretch of games against teams that are still fighting for a playoff spot. “It’s a fun time of year,” Bednar said. “Edmonton, right? They’re three, four into the playoffs, three or four points from being…...
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
The Avs continue to make winning look easy against the weaker teams in the west, with top-end talent that other teams just can’t handle most nights don’t require maximum effort. https://youtu.be/RhEdZExNhiw
The Avs ability to consistently make even decent NHL teams look like routine wins should stand as a statement about how good Colorado really is. A game led by the forward core felt like a refreshing break for the Avs defense. https://youtu.be/rwbyauNpzRY
The Avs get the two points and that’s almost certainly the only thing anyone not named Tage Thompson is going to remember about this game. The Avs exerted the minimum effort required to get the W. https://youtu.be/UGAuOO4k1LQ
The Avs made short work of the Dallas Stars so everyone could get on with their big Sunday plans. It’s tough to find any faults in Colorado’s play for this one. https://youtu.be/tbhF9wJou5o
The Avs make it 10 straight wins as they cruise past buffalo in an easy one where talent was the key difference. At this point, any problems this team has are easy to overlook. https://youtu.be/XtbK5qlsU-4
What should have been a routine win turned into a bit of an adventure in a crazy third period but the result remains the same. A Colorado team that continues to show growth on a nightly basis should terrify the league. https://youtu.be/VQxv9exo1OI
The Avs get their 16th straight win at home and finally one that felt pretty routine. With quality goaltending and defense for most of the night the Hawks never really got into this game. https://youtu.be/EWbrDDRvTNI
This morning, Colorado Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar said that he thought the team’s play has dipped a bit lately due to fatigue, which makes sense given the Avalanche are in the middle of an extremely condensed schedule ahead of next week’s All-Star break. In an attempt to remedy the issue, Bednar and his staff gave the team a day…...
Jack Johnson – C+ Jack Johnson was exactly what you’ve come to expect from him tonight. Thought he made a couple good plays, and I liked him a little better away from EJ on the penalty kill. We talked about it the other day on the DNVR Avalanche Podcast, but playing like he did tonight, JJ would be the absolute…...
The Avs made short work of Arizona in the SEGABAB, leaning on their top-end talent to punish the Coyotes heavily. With clean defensive play, this was one of the most straightforward wins of the season. https://youtu.be/qGwv4mHG458
In my opinion, what made the game-changing Too Many Men call earlier this week in Nashville extra disappointing was that the Colorado Avalanche went into that game with a chance to claim the top spot in the Central Division had they won. They let that opportunity slip away but had another chance this weekend to climb to the top of…...
The Avs win a game in which they look dominant on paper but via the eye test left a lot to be desired. While the Avs can afford to cut corners against a team like Arizona it’s not something they should make a habit of. https://youtu.be/ahwt5oBvYIY
2022 appears to be the year of the comeback as the Avs do it in the third period for the fourth time in five games. Nazem Kadri being the critical piece to the puzzle for Colorado this time. https://youtu.be/H4k470dEJ1A
A twelve-point night with five goals including a hat trick from the three-headed monster is enough to strike fear into the strongest defensive teams. All three players are capable of changing a game in an instant. https://youtu.be/yQIN6IVZ86c
