Only coming once every four years, the Winter Olympics is a treat for hockey fans who get to see players from different teams amalgamated into super squads competing for national pride and the honor that comes with bringing home a gold medal.
The International Ice Hockey Federation’s World Championship tournament started yesterday and, with nine rostered Colorado Avalanche players skating for five different national teams, there is plenty to keep track of.
When the schedule was released following the conclusion of the most recent NHL labor stoppage, the Colorado Avalanche were set to open the season against the Minnesota Wild and close it against the same Minnesota Wild.
With blizzard conditions in Denver, the Colorado Avalanche came out in a flurry of activity against the Columbus Blue Jackets, attempting to play spoiler to the visiting team’s playoff hopes in a match at Pepsi Center.
The Colorado Avalanche responded to harsh words from veteran leader Jean-Sebastien Giguere on Monday night, going on the road to California and skating their way to a win against the second-seed Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday and a shootout loss to the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.
Just how bad are things around the Colorado Avalanche right now? Bad enough that the only hope that fans have left this season is that their favorite team has a chance to get the number one pick at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
Every big injury around the NHL is scrutinized by those involved in the sport. From the top brass to the Owners, General Managers, Player Agents, and players – even all the way down to the fans – injuries like those to Erik Karlsson and Marc Staal are sure to generate conversation. The question from everyone’s lips: how do you prevent this from happening again?
The Colorado Avalanche entered Wednesday night’s contest against the visiting Dallas Stars looking to put an end to their four game skid.
The struggles continue for the lowly Colorado Avalanche, who dropped their fourth straight game with an ugly 5-2 loss to the visiting Chicago Blackhawks.
Revenge can be a sweet thing. For some it means the chance to return an inauspicious favor. For others it’s a chance to prove dominance, to say that what you did before will be nothing in comparison to what I do back. For anyone paying attention in the NHL, tonight’s contest between the Chicago Blackhawks and Colorado Avalanche is a grudge match, as simple as that.
