Did You See the Avs Hot Start? Neither Did I.

October 18th, 2019

The Colorado Avalanche are off to a blistering beginning to the 2019-20 NHL season, and it’s must-see TV. Going 5-0-1, the Avs are off to their best start in team history as young stars like Mikko Rantanen (4 goals and 5 assists), Nathan MacKinnon (3 goals and 6 assists), and Gabriel Landeskog (2 goals and 4 assists) highlight a team filled with depth and chemistry. If you like goaltending, there’s been nothing better than watching Philipp Grubauer (2.57 GAA) and Pavel Francouz (1.90 GAA) frustrate opponents with glove saves. Colorado is plus nine in goal differential, Cale (Dude, where’s)... Read More

Story of the Week – An Avalanche of Ideas

April 23rd, 2019

The story became obvious as I sat down to write.  The Colorado Avalanche would eliminate the top-seeded Calgary flames in five games, and my fingers began to type.  Thoughts of Mikko Rantanen, Nathan MacKinnon, and Philipp Grubauer raced through my head.  Memories past were of Stanley Cups, Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, and Ray Bourque.  I would be sure to throw in Patrick Roy’s legendary playoff quote once said in response to an opponent’s trash talk. “I didn’t hear him because my two Stanley Cup rings were stuffed in my ears.” It was undoubtedly the story, the headline, the news of... Read More

What the Puck? The Avalanche are Playoff Bound

The Week That Was: A Full Week of Sports in 600 Words

October 16th, 2018

One of the difficulties of trying to write a weekly Colorado sports article is focusing on the biggest story of the week, and timing it within the deadline provided.  Follow that up with the challenge of informing and entertaining the reader in 600 words or less, and the problem becomes compounded.  Within the last ten days the Colorado Rockies had a playoff series, the Denver Broncos played twice, the CU Buffs traveled to USC, the Colorado Avalanche were five games into the start of the hockey season, while the Denver Nuggets were just hours from their NBA opener. And that’s just Colorado! ... Read More
