Early Morning Line -Cale Makar

He said I stuck my ass out,” I had nowhere to go with (teammate J.T. Compher) there. It’s happened now two or three times this year. It’s tough. Whose ice is that? That’s the real question. … You have a guy skating backwards in the neutral zone at you, and if I go forward, I go in the o-zone for an offside. … I guess I can go back, but I’ll probably just run right into (Compher).”

-Cale Makar of the Colorado Avalanche on an interference call against him. Watch the call below and the game highlights.

The Colorado Avalanche Stopped By Jordan Binnington

11/15/2022 at 8:47am EST

from Bennett Durando of the Denver Post,

St. Louis goalie Jordan Binnington, still public enemy No. 1 in Colorado after last season’s second-round playoff series, lunged back in front of the net as Hunt tried to get off a shot in the third period of the Avalanche’s riveting 3-2 loss Monday night. Josh Leivo’s stick disrupted Hunt as he tried to turn and fire. Some 18,000 Ball Arena thought the game was tied, but Binnington recovered in time.

It was one of Binnington’s 44 saves, and ironically the best Avalanche opportunity in a frantic third period that ended with a 6-on-3 mad dash caused by two Blues penalties in the last two minutes.

“I felt like our intensity when the game was on the line and our attack mentality was probably better than it was at times during the game,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. “But at the same time, I thought we created lots of chances. Enough chances to win.”

After Colorado (8-5-1) cleared the net to upgrade from 5-on-3 to 6-on-3 in the final minute, Nathan MacKinnon and Cale Makar missed the net. A four-game winning streak came to an end despite the kind of end-to-end action that usually favors the Avalanche.

It was also the kind of onslaught Colorado produced throughout last season’s six-game playoff win against St. Louis, a team that is currently trying to climb out of the division cellar after a startling eight-game losing streak. Now the rival Blues have won three in a row.

Rest In Peace Peter McNab

11/06/2022 at 4:00pm EST

from Tracey Myers of NHL.com,

Peter McNab, color analyst for the Colorado Avalanche who played 14 NHL seasons as a forward, died Sunday. He was 70.

"The Altitude and KSE family are saddened to announce the passing of our friend, Peter McNab," Altitude TV, the regional sports network of the Avalanche, said in a tweet. "Our hearts go out to his family and friends, and the McNab family asks for privacy during this unimaginably difficult time."

McNab was diagnosed with cancer in August of 2021 but continued his analyst duties while undergoing chemotherapy treatments once every three weeks. Since he wasn't permitted to fly, he worked Colorado's road games from a local studio.

Video- Down 3-0, The New York Islanders With 5 Unanswered Goals

10/29/2022 at 11:22pm EDT

from Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now,

The Colorado Avalanche are going over to Finland all of next week to be good ambassadors for the game of hockey and, ostensibly, to enjoy themselves as reigning Stanley Cup champions. But there might just be a bag skate or two in the players’ near-term future after a total collapse against the New York Islanders in a game that seemed well in the bag before that.

Blowing a three-goal lead built through the first half of the hockey game, the Avalanche left the UBS Center as losers tonight. The final from Money-Makin’ Strong Island: Islanders 5, Colorado Avalanche 4.

Instead of a perfectly respectable 5-3-1 record heading to Finland, the Avalanche are the definition of mediocrity so far, at 4-4-1. It was already going to be a long plane ride to Helsinki tomorrow night. After this meltdown, the flight just got longer.

“Sloppy. Poor execution. Really the whole night,” Bednar said. “So that’s why we didn’t get any shots. Tough to get shots when you can’t execute. Whether it’s decisions, execution: sloppy. Spent the whole night defending.”

-Jared Bednar, head coach of the Colorado Avalanche after a 3-2 home loss to the Seattle Kraken. Bennett Durando of the Denver Post has more.
