Something lost in the Avalanches' 6-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins is the solution to their first line left wing problem.
Two weeks ago coach Joe Sacco tried to put Matt Duchene on the wing with Paul Stastny and Milan Hejduk. The result of this experiment was Duchene's first ever hat trick Nov. 5 in Dallas. Most people said that Duchene on the wing would not work but his numbers are proving...

The term goal of the year gets thrown around a little bit to often in the hockey world. However, tonight’s goal by the Avalanche Matt Duchene can not be put in that category as it was ...
After Adam Foote's retirement at the conclusion of the 2010-11 season, the Colorado Avalanche was tasked with finding a new captain to lead the team in coming seasons. On Monday, the team announced that 35-year-old winger Milan Hejduk was to succeed Foote as captain of the Avalanche.Hejduk, a Czech native, is just the third captain in Avalanche history since the Quebec Nordiques...
Too early for goal of the year labels? Nonsense. Check out the two nasty goals that were put on display during the Penguins-Avalanche matchup on Tuesday and decide which tickles your fancy more. Evgeni Malkin's goal is featured in the video above and shows him undressing a defender and the Avalanche goalie with two dirty dekes before hitting the twine.
Here we have...
ST. PAUL, MINN. – Above is some video of Brandon Yip at the morning skate just now, scoring a goal on Semyon Varlamov.
Yip will make his season debut for the Avalanche tonight against the Wild. Who will sit to make room for him? Coach Joe Sacco is still undecided on that. We’ll see when the lineup sheet is announced before the game tonight.

It looks like Tyler Kennedy may be in the line-up tonight, proving once and for all that his brain is tougher than Sidney Crosby's brain. Of course, Kennedy isn't a Ferrari, so he can probably just go to a regular mechanic...
Over the weekend, Matt Duchene was asked how exciting it might be to play in a game during which Pittsburgh Penguins mega-star Sidney Crosby makes his return after a nearly 11-month absence due to concussion symptoms.
Yes, I am late with this, but it is still worthy of watching the goal by Matt Duchene from last night.
It wasn’t just the second American Eagle Student Rush of the season Tuesday night against the Colorado Avalanche at CONSOL Energy Center, but also the 20th annual “Score Against Hunger” food drive in partnership with the Greater ...
Colorado Avalanche coach Joe Sacco called it a bad break. Minnesota Wild counterpart Mike Yeo said luck had nothing to do with it. Either way you look at it, Devin Setoguchi scored the game's lone goal with 2:31 left and lifted the Minnesota Wild to a 1-0 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.
When I saw that this game was on the schedule, I got very excited. I grew up watching the Avs play and hearing about my mom's inappropriate hockey crushes, so when I saw they were coming to Pittsburgh, I immediately called dibs on this game.
Also, I must give Mom a hat tip for the title of this post, as Piano Man is one of her favorite songs.
