James van Riemsdyk would help solve the need for secondary scoring in Colorado Next month, Nathan MacKinnon is likely going to win the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player. The 22-year old superstar had a breakout season, and was a part of one of the best lines in the NHL. Along with Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen, MacKinnon carried the offsense for the Avalanche all season.

One Big Number: Gabriel Landeskog’s biggest impact on the Colorado Avalanche

Playoff Flurries: a wild win and a Wild elimination

Playoff Flurries: a wild win and a Wild elimination

Avalanche avoid elimination; the Wild aren’t so lucky Well, that was nerve-wracking. This is the Colorado Avalanche team that left it until game 82 of the regular season to qualify for the playoffs, so of course, they waited until the final four minutes last night. Trailing late in the game - despite an incredible performance from Andrew Hammond - it was starting to feel like this was going to be the last game of the season. That is until the Big-3 did what they’ve been doing all season. Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, and Gabriel Landeskog put the team on their back and wouldn’t...
