Photo by Brandon Magnus/NHLI via The Avalanche beat the Sharks but will be holding their breath that MacKinnon isn't seriously injured After a disappointing loss to the Sharks on Monday night, the Colorado Avalanche were able to bounce back with a hard fought 4-0 victory Wednesday in San Jose.

Photo by Brandon Magnus/NHLI via The Avalanche want to get back on the winning track with a win tonight in San Jose. Tonight the Colorado Avalanche will face the San Jose Sharks in the second of a two-game series.

Colorado Avalanche The Avalanche seem to be at a bit of a crossroads.

Avalanche reduce Coyotes to playoff form in 6-2 desert win

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Colorado Avalanche almost underestimated their opponents on Friday night, when the Arizona Coyotes made a quick, two-goal near comeback in the third period to nearly tie up their contest against the Avs at the last second. Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog, and company made sure not to make that mistake twice, though — while they were a bit sluggish in the opening frame on Saturday night, they stormed out for the second and third periods and completely dominated offensively for a forty-minute stretch to skate away with a 6-2 final...

Photo by Michael Martin/NHLI via The Arizona Coyotes opted not to qualify goaltender Hunter Miska during the 2019 summer off-season, leaving him to pursue a contract as a 24-year old unrestricted free agent. While the Avalanche initially only brought the Edina, Minnesota native on as an AHL depth option two summers ago, though, his work ethic and promising minor league performance earned him a bump to an NHL deal midway through last year — and he was not only able to face off against his former team on Friday night, he was able to squeak out a win against them in...
