You know, there was so much drama and so many story lines ahead Game 4 between the Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues, that you almost forgot that the two teams would eventually have to play the game instead of everyone just talking about it.  I probably don’t need to fill you in on the noise surrounding this game, it’s…...

We knew that the Round 2 matchup between the Colorado Avalanche and the St. Louis Blues was going to be an interesting one. We knew we would see back and forth games, physical play, and constantly shifting momentum.  As the series shift to St. Louis for Game 3, we got all of those things and then some. While there were…...

Hockey, like most facets of life I suppose, is built on some time-worn cliches that get us through things like game recaps. They become cliches, however, because at the core is almost always some level of truth found in there. One of hockey’s great truths is that you’re never in trouble in a playoff series until you lose a home…...

What a Round 1. That was one of the more chaotic opening rounds of the Stanley Cup Playoffs that I can remember. The individual games weren’t always super close, but the overall series were fantastic. Plenty of interesting storylines, and some great matchups set up in Round 2, here’s where I see every team that’s still standing. 1. Tampa Bay…...

Let’s start this Round 2 preview between the Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues by establishing something that I think is important: This is not last year and the regular-season meetings between these two teams do not matter. There might be plenty of optimism about the Avs-Blues matchup in Colorado, but last year’s sweep of the Blues in Round 1…...

After a week of waiting, the Colorado Avalanche finally has a Round 2 opponent. It wasn’t easy as the Vegas Golden Knights coughed up a 3-1 series lead for the third consecutive year but they prevailed last night in a Game 7 domination of the Minnesota Wild with a 6-2 victory, bringing them here to Denver for Game 1 tomorrow…...

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…...

There are so many angles to Colorado’s 4-1 win in Game 6 that I could take here but I’d be lying if I tried to say the story was anything but Michael Hutchinson. It was one thing for him to get the surprise start in Game 5 and get the win. He was spotted five goals in a first period…...

It takes a village, right? While there are plenty of playoff heroics from the superstars who end up in the Hall of Fame, no team works their way through the gauntlet that is the Stanley Cup Playoffs without contributions from players further down in the lineup. Today was a perfect example of that as the Avalanche took a 2-0 series…...

The NHL announced all of the 31-player rosters at the same time on Sunday afternoon and Colorado’s featured a couple of small surprises. The breakdown of Colorado’s roster resulted in 17 forwards, 11 defensemen, and three goaltenders. The only forward cut from Colorado’s training camp was the minor surprise of the day as Vladislav Kamenev will not join the team…...
