Avalanche shine in the LA spotlights in 4-1 victory

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ They may not have shined on the ice, but they did come out with the win in the end The Colorado Avalanche had themselves a nice trip to Southern California. Thursday night they took advantage of the Los Angeles Kings in their own arena in a 4-1 win. It was nowhere near pretty or a dominant Avalanche performance we all know and love, but it was enough to get the two points. They take four points out of four from California and continue to feast on the California clubs dating back to last sesaon. Even with the competitiveness from the teams in...

REACTION: Avalanche will need another netminder

Photo by Kyle Harris/NHLI via If Darcy Kuemper is out long term, Joe Sakic must acquire another keeper. Why not make a splash? Colorado’s matinee win over rival Minnesota seems to have come at a severe cost. Avalanche netminder Darcy Kuemper took a nasty hit to the head and then hit it again on the post behind him. Kuemper looked as if he was finding his form leading into this moment. It’s unacceptable that the injury happened in this manner and that Jordan Greenway was allowed to finish the game while Darcy Kuemper left due to a subsequent concussion. Here’s...
