Avalanche outshot 60-27, win

Carolina unleashed a flurry of shots from every direction and angle imaginable. That’s all right, Semyon Varlamov was back on his game. Varlamov stopped a career-high 57 shots, Blake Comeau scored the first of Colorado’s three second-period goals over a 3:33 span and the host Avalanche beat the Hurricanes 5-3 on Thursday night. Varlamov wasn’t even all that worn out as he set an Avs record for most saves in a regular-season game. The team record — including the Quebec Nordiques — is 70 by Ron Tugnutt on March 21, 1991, at Boston. ...

Carolina Hurricanes Drop Third Straight Game in 5-3 Loss to Avalanche

Carolina Hurricanes Drop Third Straight Game in 5-3 Loss to Avalanche

Another embarrassment for Carolina leaves them below NHL .500. The Carolina Hurricanes lost again tonight. This time, they fell to the Colorado Avalanche by a score of 5-3, falling below NHL .500 at 4-5-2 with their third consecutive loss and fifth in six games. After 20 minutes, the Canes and Avs were knotted up at two. Victor Rask opened the scoring just 50 seconds in on a goal that Semyon Varlamov would certainly want back. The Avalanche responded with two of their own, starting at the 7:31 mark with Carl Soderberg and just five minutes later with Patrick Nemeth netting his first goal...

Afterwords: Stars Travel to Colorado, Things Don’t Go All That Well

The Stars will be happy to get out of town after this one, but Matt Nieto will just be happy After a winning streak where things went right for the Stars often enough to keep moving forward, the Avalanche reminded them that the shoe does occasionally find itself on the other foot. Semyon Varlamov was good when the Stars did their best Carolina impression in the final period, just like Ben Bishop was good against the Hurricanes the other night when they brought the house. The Canes hit the crossbar Saturday, and the Stars did that in the 3rd in Colorado, too. It was great when the Stars...

Colorado Avalanche Postgame: Matt Nieto’s hat trick helps end the losing streak

The Avalanche snap their losing streak with an impressive 5-3 win against the Dallas Stars The Colorado Avalanche came into Tuesday night's game well rested but having lost their past three games. The streak ended thanks in large part to the first career hat trick for Matt Nieto - who likely only got into the lineup because of injuries. The Avs looked much better than they had in their last few games, but were still outshot 37-33 and likely wouldn't have won without some incredible play by Semyon Varlamov. The Avs top line looked badly outmatched by the Stars top guys, but luckily the rest...
