Colorado Avalanche get Rinne’d; lose to Nashville 4-1

Colorado Avalanche get Rinne’d; lose to Nashville 4-1

Avalanche lose a chippy one to Nashville as a rivalry heats up After a big win Saturday afternoon against the Los Angeles Kings, the Colorado Avalanche took to the ice at the Pepsi center looking to string together consecutive victories for the first time in a long while. That wouldn’t happen as Pekka Rinne hold off an onslaught of Avalanche pressure long enough for Nick Bonino to open the scoring early in the second period. Colorado couldn’t figure out the star goaltender all night and dropped this one 4-1 despite out-shooting Nashville 36-27. First Period After missing the third...

Nashville Predators 4, Colorado Avalanche 1: Rinne Backstops Preds to Road Victory

That was a bad game with good goaltending, or a good game with bad goaltending, depending on your rooting interest. The Nashville Predators got started on a new road trip after a disappointing homestand today. The result was good, but the process can still use some work. Just over a minute into the game, former Predator Colin Wilson was left all alone in the circle—maybe because it was the regular season?—but Pekka Rinne was able to make the save. Not the start the Preds were hoping for. Shortly after that, recent callup Colin Blackwell put the Avalanche on the power play with an...

Colorado Avalanche Game Day: Huge Four Point Game Against Division Rival

Colorado Avalanche Game Day: Huge Four Point Game Against Division Rival

Avalanche look to take advantage of the slumping Western Conference. It’s no secret that the last few weeks have been tough on the Colorado Avalanche. With two home games left before the All-Star break, the Avs find themselves with a less than confident hold of the third playoff spot in the west. Tied with both Dallas and Vancouver with 52 points, who are both sitting in the two wild-card spots, Colorado is treading dangerous water. However, it could be much worse, as most squads have been unable to take advantage of the Avs wavering. The Avalanche have found themselves at a crossroads...

Why Carl Soderberg, Avalanche’s oldest member, is playing best hockey of NHL career

Why Carl Soderberg, Avalanche’s oldest member, is playing best hockey of NHL career

The Avalanche second-line center tipped the puck past Kings’ goaltender Jonathan Quick in the first period Saturday. It opened the floodgates for a 7-1 victory and notched Soderberg’s 16th score of the season -- tying a career high set last year. Soderberg now has 34 more games to extend it starting Monday against the Predators inside Pepsi Center.

What we learned from the Kings' 7-1 loss to the Avalanche

It would be easy to call it a low in the Mile High City. This really isn’t anything new, though, for the Kings. Their season is defined by disconcerting blowout games. A 7-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche was the ninth time they’ve allowed five or more goals, and the fifth time they’ve been beaten...

Colorado Avalanche expected to recall Tyson Jost immediately after All Star break

Colorado Avalanche expected to recall Tyson Jost immediately after All Star break

Some hope Jost spends the reast of the season in the AHL, but he’ll be back with the Avalanche in two weeks Last week, the Colorado Avalanche made the surprise move of demoting 20-year old forward Tyson Jost to the AHL. After struggling through a season and a half in the NHL, the team decided it was time to send Jost to the Eagles to work on his game. After giving the youngster opportunities in the top-6 and on the top power play unit, head coach Jared Bednar had slowly been shrinking Jost’s role on the Avalanche over the past month. Culminating in less than 10 minutes of ice time in...

Colorado Avalanche score seven in landslide win over LA Kings

Colorado Avalanche score seven in landslide win over LA Kings

The Avalanche run circles around the Kings on their return to Pepsi Center with six goals in the 2nd period. The Colorado Avalanche returned home after a disappointing five-game road trip in Canada where the team only earned two points from a possible 10. However, with a three-game home stand prior to the All-Star Game and another two at home after the break, the Avalanche look for redemption in front of the fans at Pepsi Center. Playing against a Los Angeles Kings team that has struggled this season with a mere 42 points from 48 games, the Avalanche were in a strong position to get the...

Kiszla: Team meeting? Check. Rousing 7-1 victory? Check. Next on Avs’ agenda: Trade for Rangers center Kevin Hayes.

The Avalanche, lacking a little in both grit and talent, needs to make a deal. Get busy, Joe Sakic. How bad do you really want this team to make the playoffs?

Colorado Avalanche Game Day: There’s no place like home

and a look at Tyson Jost’s first game Coming off a miserable five-game road-trip through Canada where the team was only able to glean two of a possible 10 points. Now, the Avs come home for a five-game homestand, the longest on the calendar. Not only will the Avs be home for five games, but with the Bye Week starting next weekend, the team will be able to be home for about three full weeks. This season, the Avs are 9-6-5 at home, a losing record. Hopefully they can juice their numbers back up to something positive in these next three weeks. Last season in afternoon games, the Avs went...
