2016 NHL All-Star Sunday Preview:

The NHL's best are set to square off this evening in a 3-on-3 mini tournament. Matt Duchene and the Central hope to show why the Central Division is the best in hockey. The NHL's move this season to a 3-on-3 sudden death overtime format has sure induced more than a few heart attacks among hockey fans. The open ice, wide-open shooting lanes, and precarious substitutions are as nerve wracking as any moment during regulation play. The rule change has been such a success, the league decided to change the format of their All-Star game to nothing BUT 3-on-3! Let's all pop some Bayer's before the...

Midseason Review: Mikhail Grigorenko

The All-Star break is more than half-way through the season, but it's a natural time to pause and reflect on some of the changes the Avalanche made this offseason. First up: 21-year old center Mikhail Grigorenko. For the past seven seasons, Colorado Avalanche fans have become conditioned to seeing the team's young, high-drafted talent get immediate and significant playing time in the NHL. Matt Duchene at 18-years old was slotted in the Top-6, Ryan O'Reilly was a 3rd-line center in his draft year, Gabriel Landeskog earned a Calder Trophy on the 2nd line, and so did Nathan MacKinnon in...

Game Recap: Avs Defeat Devils 3-0

Chris Bigras and Nikita Zadorov got the call tonight and the Avalanche played three solid periods of hockey, earning a nice 3-0 home victory before heading out on the road. Matt Duchene put the Avs on the board early in the 1st, following a great shift from Comeau, Soderberg, and Landeskog. As that line was heading off the ice, Nick Holden stole the puck at mid-ice and made a nice cross-ice pass to Duchene, who bee-lining straight from the bench. Two dekes later and the puck was in the net, his 22nd of the season (Video). The Avalanche struck again in the 2nd Period during Nick Holden...
