How are we back here already? I’ve always hated the phrase “feels like it was just yesterday”, so I’m not going to say that, but it was almost surreal being back inside Ball Arena so soon for a Colorado Avalanche game that actually mattered. Yes, the game technically did matter in terms of it being Regular Season game #1, but…...

The Colorado Avalanche are the 2022 Stanley Cup Champions.  Let me type that again, just so that there’s no confusion… The Colorado Avalanche are the 2022 Stanley Cup Champions! The Avalanche defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Monday in a nail-biting thriller at Amalie Arena to clinch the franchise’s third Stanley Cup and its first since 2001.  You all...

The Stanley Cup was in the building tonight, and the crowd wanted to see it. Unfortunately for the fans, and more so the Colorado Avalanche, the greatest trophy in sports never emerged from its case.  It was a really hard-fought game from the first puck drop. The Tampa Bay Lightning were fighting for their lives, and the Colorado Avalanche were...

I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion. – Mia Hamm A dear friend of mine with a very sweet set of pipes has his fingerprints on parts of the first major championship that Denver and Colorado ever enjoyed. Sean Moth is now the voice of Louisville Cardinal baseball, and has done PA work for each of their major sports, with work that’s gone on nearly every major outlet in the world over his decades of time being one of the best in the biz at what he does. But before Mr. Moth took his estimable talents…

All the way back in Round 1, I was talking with a fellow media member and they mentioned how much they love dramatic Game 4s. It’s almost always a team looking to go up 3-1, playing a team desperately trying to even the series. That was exactly what we had tonight. The Colorado Avalanche had successfully defended home ice in...

It was impossible. It simply couldn’t be done. For the few hundred years they’d been measuring and trying, no one could break a four minute mile. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried it. I tried running a quarter mile once in less than 60 seconds, and truly thought I might die. It’s a hell of a fast clip, and...

The Colorado Avalanche are going to the Stanley Cup Final.  When I first started covering the team during the 2016-2017 season, I never ever would have thought I’d be typing those words just five years later.  This group… the resilience they’ve shown all playoffs, the adversity they’ve had to overcome all season, and their will to win has gotten to...

What a wild first two rounds of the NHL Playoffs. So far, we’ve had half the series (6) go to a Game 7, the President’s Trophy winner lose 4 straight games to be eliminated for the 4th straight year, Andrei Vasilevskiy continues to be unbeatable in elimination games, and that doesn’t even touch on the storylines coming out of the...

We are officially into Round 3 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and it has been such a fun postseason so far. For the Conference Finals, we’ve got two early-season favorites and two teams that have proved all the doubters wrong (including myself). Two great matchups featuring four extremely talented teams. 1. Tampa Bay Lightning (Round 2 Series Win: 4-0) 1st...

Whew. That game was… well it was something.  Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals kicked off Tuesday night in Denver and it was one to remember. The Colorado Avalanche held on to claim a 8-6 win over the Edmonton Oilers in a fast-paced, wide-open thriller of a hockey game.  There’s so much to get into in this one that...

At morning skate today, every member of the media that I talked to said roughly the same thing, “I can’t believe we’re back here.” Halfway through Game 5, everybody was making plans for what they would do with their days off in between series, and obviously you know what happened next. So there we were, sitting inside the Enterprise Center...

This morning, Colorado Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar addressed the media for what felt like the 20th time since his team last saw game action. Bednar wasn’t his usual chatty self, there were actually several times he gave one-word or one-line answers. I asked him what he was looking for out of Sam Girard, given the way his postseason performance...
