Avalanche disappoint yet again at home, fall 5-2 to San Jose

Marleau’s hat trick plus one was yet another embarrassing folly as latest Avalanche losing streak his six Tonight’s latest adventure for the Colorado Avalanche began with the news that Matt Duchene was too ill to dress and left the club short one skater because they failed to stock any healthy extras on the roster. Tyson Barrie, Rene Bourque and Semyon Varlomov remain on the roster but are sidelined with injury. Double shifting some players as a consequence isn't really a big deal but putting oneself in the position and not giving a player the opportunity for NHL minutes is the more...

Marleau’s four goals lead Sharks past Avalanche

DENVER — Patrick Marleau scored four goals in the third period and the San Jose Sharks beat the last-place Colorado Avalanche 5-2 on Monday night for their fifth straight win. Brent Burns had a goal and two assists as the two teams concluded their home-and-home set. Matt Duchene, the team’s leading goal scorer, was a late scratch due to an illness and left the Avalanche with only 19 players. Duchene’s absence raised some eyebrows since the talented forward has been the subject of recent trade rumors. A third-round pick by Colorado in 2013, Martin spent most of the season with...

Sharks vs. Avalanche: Lines, gamethread and where to watch

San Joses hosts the NHL’s worst team in the Colorado Avalanche at 7:30 p.m. PST at SAP Center tonight. This is the first and only time the Avs will come to the Bay Area this season which means this is likely the last time former Shark, and Long Beach native, Matt Nieto will skate on SAP Center ice this season. Tim Heed and Barclay Goodrow both played with the San Jose Barracuda last night and were recalled to the Sharks today. Nieto is expected to skate on Colorado’s second line with Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene. Lines are courtesy of Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz. Projected...

Sharks vs. Avalanche Preview: Welcome to the Matt Nieto Bowl

Sharks vs. Avalanche Preview: Welcome to the Matt Nieto Bowl

This is the last time the Avs come to town. It took Matt Nieto 20 games and a change of uniform to score his first goal of the season. Now with the Colorado Avalanche, the winger has had the benefit of playing with Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog for a struggling squad. He returns to San Jose for the first, and possibly only time, since being waived by the Sharks early in January. That’s the most compelling storyline entering Saturday’s contest, which gets going at 7:30 p.m. at SAP Center. The Avalanche enter the game with the worst record in the NHL while the Sharks look to win...

Good afternoon ladies and germs. Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Preds of Nashvegas today at the Pepsi Center. Game time is 3:00pm ET, 1:00pm local and will be broadcast on Altitude with Moser’s radio call available as usual. The Avs reach the halfway point of the season with the completion of today’s match. Time flies when you’re having fun. Matt Duchene gets some badly needed support with the addition of Captain Gabe on the wing. Mack and Mikko now have to drag around #17. The need to showcase vets for the trade deadline means Toots/Beauch, who were extremely terrible vs...

Nashville Predators vs. Colorado Avalanche: Streak?

The Nashville Predators have a chance to go on a three-game winning streak for the first time in a long, long time tonight. After two very close victories, the Nashville Predators limp into Denver for a Central Division bout against the last place team in the Western Conference. With the trade deadline looming, there are some interesting story lines to follow tonight. The Predators just traded for Colorado enforcer Cody McLeod yesterday. Did he even fly out from Denver to Nashville before the game tonight? The other interesting pieces potentially in play are Matt Duchene and Avalanche...

Matt Duchene was the last off the ice at Avalanche practice Friday. He lingered beyond the typical post-workout messing around for a lengthy chat with assistant coach Tim Army, Duchene's confidant under three different head coaches.

Cody McLeod traded to the Nashville Predators

Cody McLeod traded to the Nashville Predators

After multiple seasons of senseless fighting and bottom-tier performance for Colorado, the longest tenured Avalanche will now be doing so across the division. Well, the first piece has fallen. The Avalanche traded a forward, but his name wasn’t Gabriel Landeskog or Matt Duchene, as was heavily speculated by the media. It was Cody McLeod—the longest-serving player in Burgundy & Blue. The undrafted McLeod worked his way up from an AHL contract in 2004-05, playing 149 games for the Lowell Lock Monsters (and their ECHL affiliate San Diego Gulls), the Albany River Rats and eventually the...
