Colin Wilson is like the vast majority of hockey players in that he takes a nap before every game he plays. Unlike most hockey players, before and after every nap Wilson puts a metallic headband around his head, with an external wire connected to an app called Muse on his smartphone. To the manufactured sounds of rain falling in a…...

It’s all happening, isn’t it? I probably speak for a lot of Avalanche watchers: it’s all happened a little too fast to properly process, hasn’t it? Who cares, enjoy it. Let’s get to the Game 5 grades: Mikko Rantanen (X) – So good, he was filthy. Two goals, one assist, just money in the clutch in this one and every…...

They don’t call them growing pains because they feel good. When the Avalanche last won a playoff series, Jose Theodore was backstopping them past the Minnesota Wild, who was were still in just their seventh season of existence. Nobody really knew at the time Colorado was on the verge of collapsing into irrelevance in the NHL for the next decade.…...

In the latest installment of the Avalanche Weekly Breakdown, presented by Piper Electric, Adrian Dater and Allie Monroy talk about the Avs’ wild and woolly two games at the Pepsi Center, and look ahead to Game 5 in Calgary and a potential close-out game. Do the Avs have what it takes to close the deal? Adrian and Allie discuss. https://youtu.be/3XMfYBKTA3c

His ice time in normal situations is, well, normal. His ice time when the Avalanche needs a big goal is: however much he wants. J.T. Compher lives for the clutch moments. In his DNA, he’s got that gene that stays cool and calm in emergency situations, while others get jittery and panicky. When the Avs needed a tying goal in…...

From pumpkin to prince. A week ago, Mikko Rantanen was skating around on his own wearing an orange non-contact jersey and the world wondering whether or not he’d be healthy for the playoffs. The Avalanche had managed to clinch their postseason berth with Rantanen on the shelf after he suffered an undisclosed injury against the Dallas Stars on March 21.…...

Greetings from the Pepsi Center, where Game 4 happens tonight (8 p.m.). The lineup stuff: Derick Brassard (ill) and Sam Girard (upper body) again will not play tonight. Girard did skate in a non-contact jersey, while Brassard was nowhere to be seen. Jared Bednar also said that there could be a change or two in the forward lines from the…...

There were a lot of film room-worthy moments from last night’s 6-2 stomping over the Calgary Flames but the story of the night was Cale Makar in his NHL debut. There were a lot of nice plays from Makar throughout his near-15 minutes of ice time but let’s be honest here: the goal is what we’re all going to remember…...

Sven Andrighetto (C) – This is a totally neutral grade because I don’t have an opinion on his game either way. He had a silly penalty early on but beyond that was relatively quiet throughout. It looked to me like Bednar used the early game to get some practice in for a potential 11-forward lineup. Tyson Barrie (B+) – He had an…...

Clay Riddell and N. Murray Edwards are listed as the co-owners of the Calgary Flames. Add Nathan MacKinnon’s name temporarily to the list. From the overtime session of Game 2 in Calgary, through the three periods of Game 3, MacKinnon has claimed dominion over a Flames defense that looks like a bum steer stuck in the mud at the Calgary…...

If someone off the street who didn’t know Cale Makar went up to him and made some small talk like, “So what did you do this weekend?”, the newest member of the Avalanche would have said: “Oh, nothing much. I was in Buffalo, where I played two NCAA Frozen Four games. On Friday, I won the NCAA college player of…...

Fresh off the 48-point season the organization will never be able to forget, they watched in horror as their draft lottery luck was about as it bad as it could be, dropping from the well-earned first pick all the way to four. In the 2017 NHL Draft, that tumble seemed significant at the time. The class was considered weaker than…...

CALGARY, Alberta – It was all drawn up nice by Jared Bednar on his waxy chalkboard. His Avalanche team would win a faceoff and score the tying goal in a playoff game against the Calgary Flames, then hope to go on and win from there. That’s exactly what happened – except none of it really went as planned. “It was…...
