The Colorado Avalanche normally start their morning skate practice at 10:30 AM on game days. This morning though, as the media filed into the main seating bowl at Ball Arena, the team was noticeably absent from the ice until almost 10:45.  Once media availability rolled around, head coach Jared Bednar reviled that the team was late getting on the ice…...

“This is embarrassing. It’s always hard to lose in the playoffs, especially like this.” “Listen, they were better than us. They beat us in four straight. They’re a great team. We weren’t good enough, that’s the bottom line.” “As you can see, we didn’t even give ourselves a chance…Clearly [the Avalanche] the better team.” Sometimes the story of a playoff…...

This was the game the St. Louis Blues were looking for. This was the game folks said the Colorado Avalanche couldn’t win. With an aggressive forecheck turned all the way up and feeding off a raucous home crowd, this was the recipe for the Blues to find their way into a game in a series they entered the night trailing…...

When the game is halfway over and you’re leading 3-0 and outshooting the opponent 26-10, you aren’t expecting the closest of finishes in that game but that’s exactly what the Colorado Avalanche got in their Game 2 tilt against the St. Louis Blues.

“Playoffs, you start over, right? Your stats from the regular season don’t matter. In fact, your postseason stats don’t matter at all. For us, it’s about wins and losses.” Colorado Avalanche captain Gabe Landeskog started his postgame presser by throwing the numbers from Colorado’s 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues in Game 1 out the window entirely. Coming from…...

Sometimes you can just feel a stinker of a game coming up. It’s been a while since the Avalanche really had one (the 8-3 loss at Minnesota to end their point streak certainly qualifies) but tonight’s 4-1 loss was the first time since maybe opening night where it felt like they weren’t even competitive. There were those few minutes in…...

Afternoon games have the reputation of producing some wild contests and today’s Avalanche-Blues matinee affair certainly lived up to it. While the Avalanche fell short in a 5-3 loss and had their five-game winning streak snapped, it was a weird one from the very beginning. Colorado scored two goals in the first four minutes of the game, then watched the…...

Remembering back to the first game of the season, a tough 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues on home ice, really gives you a sense of how this Colorado Avalanche season has developed. That night, the Avs opened the season as Cup favorites, a team facing real expectations after they fell just short of making a conference finals appearance…...
