Andrew Hammond to Start Game 5 For the Colorado Avalanche

Andrew Hammond to Start Game 5 For the Colorado Avalanche

Goaltender Andrew Hammond has been at the centre of a miracle before. He will need to do it again. The Colorado Avalanche announced on Thursday that goaltender Jonathan Bernier suffered a lower-body injury in Game 4 against the Nashville Predators. The injury will keep him from dressing in Game 5 of the first round series. The Predators won Game 4 by a score of 3-to-2, to take a 3-games-to-1 lead in the series. With starting goalie Semyon Varlamov already lost for the season, the Avalanche will turn to their third-string goalie in an elimination game. Andrew Hammond will start between...

Predators vs. Avalanche Series Preview: Avs Goaltenders

What do we know about Colorado’s goaltending situation? Hint: we’ve seen Bernier before. The Colorado Avalanche busted some serious butt to get themselves into the Stanley Cup playoffs this season. They largely rode high scoring forwards like Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen to their playoff berth. In goal for a majority of the season was Semyon Varlamov. He was sidelined last season due to injury, and he’s currently out for the playoffs with a super specific “lower body injury.” Our friends at Mile High Hockey assess the loss of Varlamov here. Varlamov had a pretty solid...

Colorado Avalanche Ride the Rookie Wave to the Playoffs

Colorado Avalanche Ride the Rookie Wave to the Playoffs

First Year Players Contributing in a Big Way I don’t think it’s any secret that the breakout season that Nathan MacKinnon has had is the biggest reason for the regular season success of the Colorado Avalanche. Mikko Rantanen also established himself as a top notch talent that can put up some major numbers at the NHL level. Semyon Varlamov and Jonathan Bernier were both bright spots on a team that wasn’t given a chance at the beginning of the year. Entering this season, there was a lot of pressure on the leadership group to bring this team out of the dumpster that was the 2016-17...

Good return for Hammond spoiled early on in 2-1 loss to Flyers

Good return for Hammond spoiled early on in 2-1 loss to Flyers

Two early goals for the Flyers led to a frustrating 2-1 regulation loss for the Avalanche The Colorado Avalanche entered their game on Wednesday night in fairly dire need of a victory. They remain deeply entrenched in the Western Conference Wild Card race, but recent inconsistencies - and a few other teams out west heating up at just the wrong time - have left them on the outside looking in, sorely in need of a few more two-point games in their favor to finally seal the deal. It was the worst possible time, therefore, for Semyon Varlamov to wind up ill before the game - but although he...
