In sports, sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. And sometimes you lose a lot. Such has been the case for the Colorado Avalanche of late. The team is entering the final days before the trade deadline while clinging to the final wild card spot by the tips of their fingers. Their 25-24-11 record, good for 61 points in 60 games, edged…...

Uncut audio from Avs locker room, following the 7-1 win over Winnipeg. I have three players for you here, A.J. Greer, Gabe Landeskog and Matt Nieto. All three contributed in different ways to what I thought was the most impressive win of the Avs season. First up, Greer, who scored his first career goal: Next up, Landy, talking about this…...

It’s always tough when a person who has found success his entire life suddenly finds himself struggling in ways he never has before. So goes it with Tyson Jost, the 10th overall pick from the 2016 NHL Draft who had a stellar freshman season at North Dakota before signing with the Avalanche and turning pro. Fast forward to this season and…...

Now that was an ass-whipping. Avs beat Winnipeg Jets 7-1 Wednesday night, move back into the top eight in the Western Conference and win the fights against a chippy Winnipeg squad. Let’s get to the grades, and I’ll be doling out A’s like biscuits on a cold Sunday morning. Mikko Rantanen (A) – Scored the second goal of the game…...

In the latest installment of the “Avalanche Weekly Breakdown”, presented by Piper Electric, Adrian Dater joins Allie Monroy to discuss why it’s OK to start feeling better about the Avs’ playoff chances again. Also up for discussion: What made Monday’s win over Vegas more special than usual, and why Friday’s game in Chicago is so Uuuuuuge. https://youtu.be/VV6Iol_kI9I

Greetings from the Pepsi Center, where the Avs just finished up their morning skate. A big one (they’re all big now) tonight against the Central Division-leading Winnipeg Jets (6:30 start, TV reasons). There will be absolutely no change from the lineup the other night. Semyon Varlamov in net, same line combos, same D pairs. So, not a lot of news…...

Andrew Agozzino (A+) – First career NHL goal, assist on the third goal: 6:27 TOI. That’s how you handle opportunity. Sven Andrighetto (D+) – This is a touch harsh but when your playing time essentially doubles and I still don’t have much to say about your game, you’re not doing enough with the increased opportunity. Or I just really missed the boat…...

It was funny walking into the Avalanche locker room tonight. Players tend to stay in the same lockers for years at a time so when you walk in, you tend to know where you’re going based on which player you’re wanting to talk to after a game. With his call-up happening yesterday and me not working morning skate this morning…...

#DaterJinx be damned, there is still plenty of hope for this Colorado Avalanche hockey club. The Avs go into tonight’s game with the Vegas Golden Knights three points out of the second and final Western Conference playoff spot, currently held by the Minnesota Wild. They are also even in points with the Arizona Coyotes (57) and two points back of…...

When the Avalanche found themselves tied in a game without goals entering the third period yesterday, there was plenty of hope the team could find a way on home ice to come out on top of the St. Louis Blues. They had played a tightly contested defensive game and goaltender Semyon Varlamov had been great at bailing them out of…...

For as long as I cover this fine game, I’ll never, ever forget the words of the Avalanche’s first coach, Marc Crawford, during that unforgettable 1995-96 season. “Your best players have to be your best players,” Crow often said. So simple, eh? Hockey is an incredibly complex game I think, with so many nuances. And yet, it always comes down…...

Sven Andrighetto (C+) – After a very strong showing in Winnipeg, Andrighetto returned to previous levels today. It wasn’t all bad for him but it wasn’t the impressive performance he put up two nights ago. Tyson Barrie (D) – The power play continues to not only not produce, but it’s also not even coming close to creating chances. As the primary QB…...

Sven Andrighetto (A) – He was really fun to watch. Then he scored a goal and it was a nice reminder of just exactly what he is capable of when he’s feeling it. Always happy for a guy struggling through the season when he has a good night. Tyson Barrie (C+) – The shot attempts weren’t great but not many actually…...
