Adam McQuaid absolutely should have been suspended for his hit on Tyson Jost

Adam McQuaid absolutely should have been suspended for his hit on Tyson Jost

Once again the NHL Department of Player Saftey proves they’re not worried about player safety Last night, the Colorado Avalanche got a pretty big scare when prized rookie Tyson Jost needed to be helped off the ice with an apparent leg injury with eight minutes left in the second period. Avs fans held their breath as Jost crawled around on all fours after being the victim of an incredibly dangerous hit by Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid. Avalanche fans weren’t the only ones who were scared of a serious injury. “Scary moment in the game. Probably one of scariest moments of my hockey...

Fresh Links: Same Again, Missing Patrice Bergeron

Three letters to sum up the series against the Avalache? UGH. The Bruins slunk out of Denver solidly beaten by the Avalanche for the second game in a row. Cut straight to the facts and the game highlights. The final score was 6-3. (With video) NHL Hey, at least the Avalanche players and fans had a good time. CBS Boston Same stuff, different day. A dismal second period left fans with a sinking feeling of deja-vu. Only a spark in the third from Tim Schaller and Torey Krug offered (false) hope. Boston Globe “Mostly hard to watch” about sums it up. Four bullet points from the game...

Morning Flurries: Kerfoot gets his first, Jost gives us a scare and the Yak Attack is Back

The Avalanche are back home and rolling - how long can this last? Well that was fun. The Colorado Avalanche came home to the Pepsi Center last night and gave the home fans their best effort so far this season. The Avs were dominant for most of the game, outshooting the Boston Bruins 37-23 on the way to a 6-3 victory. For the first time this season, Semyon Varlamov didn’t have to stand on his head in order to get the win. Here’s a full breakdown of the game from Cat Silverman. During the game last night, rookie forward Alex Kerfoot scored his first of what is likely to be many NHL goals....

Bruins vs. Avalanche 10/11/17 RECAP: Bruins cannot defend to save their lives, lose 6-3

A solid third period can’t save the B’s from themselves. It was better, but the B’s need something. Maybe Bergeron, maybe Backes, maybe something but whatever it is, they need a change. First Period: Things didn’t look any better than the first game against the Avs, and eventually it didn’t end up any better, as the puck careened off of Adam McQuaid’s stick and right past Rask eight minutes in. 1-0 Avs. And so things settled, but did that mean the Bruins were going to go quietly? Hell no! They slowly picked up the pace, put their skating legs on, and Brad Marchand found a way...

Boston continues to lose against Colorado with 6-3 victory for Avalanche

Colorado moves to 3-1-0 record to start the season with yet another win over Boston. The Boston Bruins did everything they could think of to try and come back on Wednesday night, chasing down a miserable 4-0 shutout loss at TD Garden to Colorado this past weekend. Their best efforts still proved to fall short, though, as the Avalanche swept their home-and-away series against the Bruins with a 6-3 win on home ice. THE RUNDOWN Colorado came into their fourth game of the season riding high. After opening up the year with a decent 4-2 win over the New York Rangers on the road, they stumbled...

Nail Yakupov scored his team-leading third goal for the Avalanche on Wednesday against the Boston Bruins at the Pepsi Center. It's far too early to suggest the Russian winger is turning around what was once considered a can't-miss career, but he's certainly happy in Colorado.

The Boston Bruins head to Denver to look for a win in their season-series against Colorado The Avalanche take on the B’s tonight for their home opener at the Pepsi Center. After dismantling the Bruins 4-0 in Boston they look to continue their strong play on home ice. Home ice advantage wasn’t particularly an advantage for the Avalanche last year, posting a 13-26-2 record at the Pepsi Center. Meanwhile, the Bruins were one of the better teams on the road, registering a 21-14-6 record. The Pepsi Center should see an energized crowd ready to forget the home woes of last year. Avalanche...

Colorado Avalanche winger Nail Yakupov was credited with two incredible goals against the Boston Bruins.

Avalanche cap trip with win in Boston

The Colorado Avalanche are heading into their home opener feeling pretty good. Another win in Boston certainly helped. Semyon Varlamov stopped 29 shots, Nail Yakupov scored two goals and the Avalanche continued their recent success in Boston with a 4-0 win over the Bruins on Monday. Sven Andrighetto and J.T. Compher scored first-period goals for the Avalanche, who have a 12-game points streak, including 11 wins, in Boston since March 30, 1998. Colorado completed its season-opening, three-game road trip at 2-1. Boston...

Bruins vs. Avalanche 10/9/17 RECAP: Listless Bruins fall in a 4-0 shutout.

A learning experience for coaching staff and rookies, but an agonizing one for fans. No Ranker, heck with it. Like you’d be upvoting anyone anyways. First Period: The Bruins got off to a slightly interesting start, controlling play for awhile and making it look like it was going to be a generally smooth ride... and then...well...this happened. Funny bounces on the boards aren’t the only thing that happens in TD Garden, I suppose. 1-0 Avs. The Bruins tried to capitalize on a later power play, but as this night would continue to prove, offense was now a far-flung concept. An immaterial...

Colorado Avalanche continue dominance in Boston with a 4-0 shutout of the Bruins

A solid team effort continues for the Colorado Avalanche as they send Bruins fans home unhappy since 1998. In what is becoming somewhat of a tradition, the Colorado Avalanche faced the Boston Bruins on Columbus Day in Beantown. Another tradition is the Avalanche beating the Bruins in Boston, which the last time that didn't occur was in 1998. On the back of a 29 save Semyon Varlamov shutout, the streak lives on for another year in a 4-0 victory for the Avalanche. Opening the scoring was Sven Andrighetto at 4:41 in the first period off of a nice feed from Mikko Rantanen. The puck bounced up...
