Avalanche hang on to win wacky game 4-2

Photo by Michael Martin/NHLI via A hockey game that had almost everything in it and tempers overflowing After going up 3-0 after two periods, the Colorado Avalanche hung on to beat the Arizona Coyotes 4-2 for the final time in the regular season Monday night. The Avs end the season series with a 6-1-1 record against the Desert Dogs and extend their division point total to 62 points. A wild and wacky game that saw a lengthy review, crazy equipment malfunctions, and big scrums to end the game were just a marginal part of the wacky matchup. Nathan MacKinnon continued his...

Opinion: Nathan MacKinnon’s helmet throw can’t happen

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports At first glance, the play may seem funny but it’s absolutely something you can’t do on the ice Nathan MacKinnon knows a thing or two about becoming an internet meme. He’s the guy who scores goals so slick they get played on highlight reels across the league. He’s the guy who made a weird video working at Tim Horton’s with fellow Nova Scotian Sidney Crosby, which delighted the internet almost as much as his goals typically do. He’s even the guy who was the subject of a weird piece by The Hockey News’ Ken Campbell this...

Colorado Avalanche lose in a desert shootout, 5-4 versus the Arizona Coyotes

Photo by Norm Hall/NHLI via Colorado and Arizona slug it out in a game featuring two backup goaltenders, a milestone goal and lots of questionable referee decisions. The Colorado Avalanche would come into tonight’s contest red-hot, but got their jets cooled by the Arizona Coyotes in a 5-4 shootout loss. It would be a rough night for goaltenders, as both Colorado and Arizona started backups. Jonas Johansson would make his first start for Colorado, and despite a really rough start, would play decently enough to give Colorado a chance to win. Nathan MacKinnon would...
