Last minute onslaught not enough for Avalanche in 4-3 loss to Predators

  HIGHLIGHTS GAME RUNDOWN The Avalanche walked into this game in Nashville off a horrific homestand having earned only one point. Adding insult to injury, the defense was without Erik Johnson, who was lost to a broken fibula in the game against Dallas on Saturday. To say this was a must-win tilt would be an understatement, and it’s not because of standings or points...

Is Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon playing too soft?

NASHVILLE — Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon enters Tuesday’s game against the Nashville Predators with zero penalty minutes. In 23 games, the first-line player known for his talent and toughness has been a model citizen while logging 20:07 in average ice time, tops among forwards. But this is hockey, and inadvertent tripping minors and the occasional fighting major are part...

Avs Mailbag: Is it time for Colorado to pull the trigger on a “blockbuster” deal

Denver Post sports writers Terry Frei and Mike Chambers post the Avs Mailbag every other Tuesday during the regular season. Pose an Avalanche- or NHL-related question for the Avs Mailbag. First off, I appreciate the coverage of the team. Given the team’s highly mediocre play to start the season, I am curious as to when you believe Avs’ management will stop protecting this current...

Struggling Avalanche try to get on track during 4-game trip

The Avs have accumulated a league-worst 19 points through 23 games in coach Jared Bednar's first season at the helm. They're missing their captain, top defenseman and a consistent...

Nathan MacKinnon is Finally Here

In 2013 the Colorado Avalanche selected Halifax native Nathan MacKinnon with the first overall pick. He was deemed to be the saviour the Avalanche desperately needed to get back to their glory days of the early 2000’s.  MacKinnon came into the struggling organization fresh off of a 1.75 point per game season (75 Pts in 44 GP) and a Memorial Cup victory with the Halifax Moosehead...

Video: Nathan MacKinnon loses an edge and crashes violently into the boards

Nathan MacKinnon and Jacob Markstrom are lucky to have avoided a serious injury after MacKinnon lost an edge and crashed awkwardly into the boards. MacKinnon lost his edge between the circles and slid just wide, narrowly avoiding a huge collision with Markstrom who was playing the puck just outside of his crease. That could have ended really, really badly. Markstrom appeared to...

The Colorado Avalanche unveiled a new intro video and on-ice projection with a James Bond twist for Wednesday’s game against the Edmonton Oilers. Props to the Avalanche for really capturing the 007 mood with some psychedelic animations in one of the better on-ice or on-court projections since the technology became available in 2014.
