Today’s Avalanche Roundtable topic is one that probably would’ve been answered pretty easily had the season continued as normal. If they manage to squeeze out an end to the regular season and head into the playoffs, this will be the most pressing question facing the franchise. Today’s topic: Assuming play resumes either at the end of the regular season or…...

There was a game tonight, yes. The Avalanche had a chance to tie the St. Louis Blues for first in the Central Division for the second time this road trip but once again came up short. This loss was completely unlike the one against Vancouver over the weekend as that was a high-scoring affair with lots of scoring chances. This...

Avs games in Vancouver the last couple years have been nothing short of wild rides. Tyson Barrie had a five-point night, Nathan MacKinnon injured his shoulder in a playoff chase, Philipp Grubauer struggled badly in a 7-6 barnburner that was also the first-ever DNVR (then BSN) Avalanche Watch Party, and the one game there this year saw Vancouver come back...

If there was ever a game to wave away a loss, this was it. This was tailor-made for the Avalanche’s five-game winning streak to come to a halt. Let’s look at a list of things going against them coming into this one. Played grueling game last night in Carolina Nashville hung out at home last night and probably watched the...

Sometimes you Storm Surge, sometimes the storm surges you. In a battle of nature versus different nature, it was other nature that ended up prevailing tonight as the Avalanche topped the Hurricanes, 3-2. The real difference-maker, however, was La Tornade as a perfect finish from Sam Girard at 17:23 of the third period broke a tie and provided a little...

I always laugh when guys like me (media types, I mean) categorize a rash of injuries as a possible “blessing in disguise.” Like a team somehow gets better or has an improved situation because a grip of injuries ripped through their team and forced them to play short-handed. For the second time this season, however, the Avalanche are dealing with...

When players have an option between testing the free agent waters and staying where they’re familiar, it’s always interesting to see which the player prioritizes. Given Pavel Francouz’s age (29) and strong rookie season this year, it was reasonable to expect he might get intriguing offers to play more for bad teams, potentially even getting a chance to start for...

COLORADO SPRING, CO – For the 43,574 hockey enthusiasts in attendance at Air Force Academy for the spectacle known as the 2020 NHL Stadium Series game, it was a tale of three periods between the Western Conference foes meeting for the first time this season. Entering the night, Colorado had an opportunity to tie for the Central Division lead with...

Blown leads are just a part of life in sports. But blowing leads in the third period of three straight home games? That’s a problem. For tonight, though, the way it all unfolded differed quite a bit from what happened in losses to Carolina and Chicago last week. In those games, Colorado was leading in the third period but took...
