Photo by Brandon Magnus/NHLI via Some soul searching and answers are needed after this one Continuing on their road trip the Colorado Avalanche stopped in San Jose to begin the week and a new two-game set. Unfortunately the same problems the Avalanche saw last week returned and resulted in another 6-2 beating this time at the hands of a Sharks team who has been enduring their own struggles. The Game A sloppy first period for both teams still saw the Avalanche lead the shot advantage 11-7 and then they finally would convert near the end of the frame for a 1-0 lead...

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.

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...
