MHH Roundtable: Quarter point check-up

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports Examining the 2022-23 Colorado Avalanche thus far. The 2022-23 Colorado Avalanche were chugging along and stringing some wins together despite a lengthy injury list in hopes for a strong surge this spring and into the playoffs but have hit a bit of a wall with Nathan MacKinnon now headlining that group. Here are our thoughts on the season thus far. Other than the injury list what has been the biggest surprise thus far this season? Evan: Alexandar Georgiev has been my biggest surprise of the year. When the news broke he’d be...

Recap: Avs blanked by Bruins

Recap: Avs blanked by Bruins

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ The slide continues for the Avs.  Rollercoasters are supposed to be fun. Not this one though. The roller coaster of the Colorado Avalanche continues on the downfall, losing their third straight game 4-0. The first and third losses including Wednesday night’s affair came at the hands of the Boston Bruins. This is just the start of what is going to be a long, busy stretch for the Avs. Down 11 guys with injuries, filled with AHL-talent players, it was always going to be a task for Colorado to get anything out of the game. Their performance...

Open Thread: Colorado Avalanche vs. Boston Bruins (7:00 p.m.)

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports It’s a Colorado Eagles (Avalanche) game day! The Avs are coming off a tough road trip where they went 1-3 against Winnipeg, Buffalo, the same Boston Bruins, and Philadelphia, and normally you’d think a return home is cause for optimism. While there are some hopeful signs on the horizon (Valeri Nichushkin and Gabriel Landeskog skating for example), for tonight’s game there is little positivity one can find. Colorado is missing five of its top six forwards and two of its top four defensemen, as the team currently has six AHL forwards...

Colorado Avalanche Gameday: The Colorado Eagles host the Boston Bruins

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports The Avs will suit up their most short-handed squad of the season against the league’s best team. The Colorado Avalanche are set for their rematch of last week’s beatdown in Boston, and for those who asked if it could get any worse that night, your question has been answered: yes, yes it can. Nathan Mackinnon will “miss some time” after picking up an upper-body injury in Philadelphia in the last game against the Flyers. This is going to be the most short-handed Avalanche team we have seen in quite some time, which is the last thing...

OPINION: Injuries could derail Avs season

OPINION: Injuries could derail Avs season

Photo by Joe Puetz/NHLI via The longer this goes, the bigger concern it becomes. The word of the year to describe the 2022-23 Colorado Avalanche is injuries. The list of injured players continues to rise. Between the Avalanche and Eagles, the number of injuries is up to 11 different players. The stars are out, and those replacing the stars are also starting to fall as well. This is a serious issue that will hamper Colorado for the rest of the season. What do the following players have in...
