The Avs secure a playoff spot in their first game back from a covid pause off the back of players who have been moved around the lineup to makeup for those still on the NHL COVID protocol list. https://youtu.be/zdpsOTAGqi0
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…...

The Avalanche had to grind for this one but got the job done to complete the sweep of the St. Louis Blues, an unexpected goaltending duel came down to a fluky bounce in the end. https://youtu.be/YxRdMeoJgWo
Even in a condensed season like this one you are going to have a handful of games that fall into the bog standard category. That was this one for the most part, except for the fact that the Avs finally got quality goaltending from their thrid-stringer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5BPzNw49Tk
When a team goes 10-0-2 across their last 12 games, all while climbing the standings and eventually pulling dead even with the team that was leading everyone by several points, you expect that club to lose its edge at some point. Against the St. Louis Blues, who are suddenly desperate for points after an injury-ravaged season has forced them into…...
The Avs sent a message to the St. Louis Blues blowing them out of Ball Arena with ease. Led by the Three-Headed-Monster no one was safe from embarrassment as the Avs pick up their first win of the season. https://youtu.be/xGKfkcNbuLs

A rusty start to the season for the Avalanche as they have only themselves to blame in a messy loss to the St. Louis Blues on opening night. Correct the obvious mistakes and move on to the next one. https://youtu.be/yD-VUgAeU_4
“Too many guys not doing enough.” That’s how Avalanche head coach finished his press conference following Colorado’s season-opening 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues. To be honest, that could have been the first and only thing he said and it would’ve been completely appropriate. Coming into the season as one of the darlings of the NHL and as a…...
Nazem Kadri has cemented a record that is nearly statistically impossible to beat. https://youtu.be/4VLjKQmtb0w
As we start to shift our coverage here more towards the inevitable NHL draft, the focus naturally shifts to the future. Colorado and St. Louis were setting up for an intriguing sprint to the Central Division title that appears will be cut short by the ongoing pandemic. This brings us to today’s topic: Considering salary cap situations, prospect pools, and…...
