LAS VEGAS – ‘Tis the season of ugly Christmas sweater wearing and as we all know, sometimes you wear the sweat and other times that sweater wears you. Coming into their final game before the Christmas break against the Vegas Golden Knights, the Avs were wearing a scarlet ‘L’ on their chest after taking two home losses that should have been…...

“A Stanley Cup preview.” There are a handful of teams that run into each other every year and the game gets billed as a potential preview of the Stanley Cup Finals. We all have a crystal ball and it’s never not hazy for us. Double negatives aside, this was nothing but positive for the Avalanche. Coming in with two wins...

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...

Coming in on the second night of a back to back (SEGABABA) against a rested team, this was the old “scheduled loss” for the Avalanche in Tampa Bay. Instead, Tyson Jost turned into his own personal breakout as Colorado exacted a little revenge for a loss that started a dark period of the season last year for the Avs. Colorado...

Drenched in sweat, Samuel Girard looked exhausted after the Avs 3-2 overtime victory against the Arizona Coyotes. Having just played a team-high 23:52 in the win, would you blame him for being tired? Watching him on the ice, it sure doesn’t look like he wears down at all. “I think they have a lot of confidence in me and for...

When longtime Avalanche goaltender Semyon Varlamov left in free agency for the New York Islanders, the job of starting goaltender shifted firmly to Philipp Grubauer. This is the shot Grubauer wanted. Last year after coming over from the Washington Capitals, he had to contend with the final year of Varlamov’s tenure in Colorado before winning the job late in the...

The Avalanche announced today they have re-signed goaltender Pavel Francouz to a one-year contract. BSN Denver has learned the contract is a one-way deal worth $950,000. The contract gives Colorado their presumptive backup goaltender to Philipp Grubauer as Semyon Varlamov is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer and Joe Sakic made it clear at his recent presser...
