Colorado Avalanche get a team win in beating the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2

Colorado Avalanche get a team win in beating the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2

Eight Avs recorded points even while MacKinnon was held scoreless. A lot of speculation was made around NHL circles about how the Colorado Avalanche would handle losing captain Gabriel Landeskog for the remainder of the season — and so far it’s turned out well. The Avs will need to prove themselves even more coming up, with Mikko Rantanen out for at least the next game. But for now, Colorado put together a full team effort in besting the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 Saturday afternoon for their fourth straight win — and in the process jumped both the Arizona Coyotes and the Minnesota Wild...

Blackhawks stumble to 4-2 loss against Avalanche

Chicago goes 0/3 on the power play and lose their third straight game. The Colorado Avalanche stretched the Chicago Blackhawks losing streak to three games with a 4-2 win Saturday at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

How it Happened From the drop of the puck, the Blackhawks and Avalanche played at an impressive pace with tons of action at both ends of the ice. In the first shift of the game, Brandon Saad took a tripping call after an icing. On the resulting...

Colorado Avalanche Game Day: pushing back for the Wild Card

Colorado Avalanche Game Day: pushing back for the Wild Card

The Avalanche head to Chicago ready for the biggest weekend of their season The Colorado Avalanche were briefly triumphant this past week, clawing their way back out of the pit forged by horrendous January goaltending to return to a playoff position following their win over Dallas. With a win for the Minnesota Wild on Friday, though, they were pushed back to the outside looking in — and they’ll need to win their game on Saturday to put themselves back where they were in the middle of the week. The good news is that the team is on a three-game win streak, flying high after Philipp...

Colorado Avalanche Snag Second Wildcard Spot with 3-1 Win Against Dallas Stars

Colorado Avalanche Snag Second Wildcard Spot with 3-1 Win Against Dallas Stars

Goaltender Philipp Grubauer’s heroic 80 saves in two road victories put the Avalanche in a playoff spot with eight games remaining in the regular season. The Colorado Avalanche went into tonight’s game against Dallas following a huge 3-1 win against their bitter rivals, the Minnesota Wild. This was the final meeting between the Stars and Avalanche this season, with the Avalanche winning two of the previous three contests. While the Dallas Stars still occupy the first wildcard spot in the Western Conference, the Avalanche entered the game on the outside looking in on 76 points. Yet,...

Avalanche Defeat Stars 3-1, Stars Now Sit 4 Points Behind Blues and 4 Points Ahead of 2nd Wild Card

Jason Dickinson summed this one up pretty well: “It sucks.” Earlier today, a terrible traffic accident from late last night blocked off all lanes of Dallas North Tollway heading northbound around the Park exit, right where the other main thoroughfare of east-west oriented President George Bush Turnpike feeds onto the north-south highway. In a city with one of the worst “reverse commutes” it had an understandably headache-inducing, frustrating impact on those heading to the suburbs for their work day. The Colorado Avalanche tonight was the Dallas Stars equivalent to that guy that I...

Colorado Avalanche Game Day: Avs aim to gain ground in Dallas

Another must-win night. The Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars will be battling for playoff position tonight in “Big D.” Dallas won comfortably in their last meeting with the Avs by a score of 4-0. The first of a recently snapped three-game shutout streak for Stars netminder Ben Bishop. The Avs also lost captain Gabriel Landeskog to an upper-body injury after Bishop “unintentionally” pinned him to the boards. Dallas has been a dominant defensive team in the later part of the season only allowing eight goals in regulation the last nine games. Colorado will have to work hard to...

Avalanche-Red Wings rivalry revisited: The Russian Five invades Denver

The Avalanche and its fans hated them. Sergei Fedorov. Slava Kozlov. Igor Larionov. Viacheslav Fetisov. Vladimir Konstantinov. They were Detroit's Russian Five, some of the heavy hitters in the Avalanche-Red Wings rivalry of the late 1990s and early 2000s.
