Game 71: Colorado Avalanche vs New Jersey Devils Date and Time: Thursday March 15, 2012, 7 PM       Location: Prudential Center TV: MSG Plus 2 (Devils Pregame at 6:30)     Radio: WFAN 660 AM The Matchup: The Avs come to town tonight to wrap up the regular season meetings between these two teams. This will be the second time we meet and let’s hope it goes A LOT better than the last. The Avalanche won 6-1 back on Nov. 30 in Denver  Keys to the Game: Let’s show up tonight!! I didn’t think the Devils did a very good job at anything the other night in Philly so we need to do a better job all around. The Avs are coming off a huge win in Buffalo last night so let’s hope they are a little fatigued tonight. The Avs are in a battle for 8th place in the west so you have to believe they are going to bring it tonight. If the Devils do anything different tonight, it has to be getting pucks to the net. They got 17 shots on net Tuesday night which I can honestly say should never be enough to ...

NHL: Avalanche Warning - 3/14/12

Over the years, I have followed the Colorado Avalanche's Annual Charity Brunch via avalanche.nhl.com and the segments they do on it on Avalanche All Access, Altitude TV's weekly Avalanche show. This year however, I finally got to attend the event live, in-person due to a 2011 Christmas gift from my wonderful wife. :) The event was very elegant and well-put-together as hosted...

my take on the rookie of the year race

Today, as I listened to sports talk radio here in Vancouver, I heard the name Gabriel Landeskog and the words 'rookie of the year' mentioned in the same sentence. While Landeskog and the rest of his teammates on the Colorado Avalanche are getting a lot of attention with their resurgent play of late, I believe it is premature to hand Landeskog the trophy just yet. Landeskog...

Aaron Musick: Duchene to return in New Jersey

When Matt Duchene went down March 6 against Minnesota, the worst was assumed. Is it an ACL? Is it a broken ankle? What is it? Turned out it was a sprained ankle and he was supposed to be out 3-4 weeks. Well, Duchene has other plans. He is on the trip, skating and will return to the lineup tomorrow in New Jersey, just one week from when he got hurt. This comes as a shock...

Brodeur and Giguere Battle Like It’s 2003

If anyone caught the Devils game last night, you witnessed an old-school goaltender duel between Martin Brodeur and Jean-Sebastien Giguere of the Colorado Avalanche. Both goalies pitched shutouts for the game, and the 0-0 battle would need to be decided in a shoot out. Brodeur made 27 saves while Giguere finished with 33. Both goalies made numerous stops and big saves to give their...

Shaune Vetter: I Guess Tonight IS The Most Important Game Of The Season...

Last night there were two teams in particular that could have really helped the team's post season hopes. In Buffalo, the Sabres faced the Colorado Avalanche. Things looked good as the Sabres were ahead and about to do the Flames a big favour when Gabriel Landeskog showed once again why he's quickly becoming the Calder favorite by leading his club when it needed it most as...

Avalanche-Devils Preview

The Colorado Avalanche have little room for error as they fight for one of the final playoff spots in the Western Conference. The unexpected return of Matt Duchene could provide a lift as they continue a difficult stretch. Colorado will look to win its fourth straight Thursday night when it visits the New Jersey Devils. The Avalanche (38-30-4) are one of many teams fighting for...

Aaron Musick: LandesCalder

Say this about Gabriel Landeskog, he puts on a show for the national media. Two games in row on NBC Sports network, Landeskog has stepped up his game. In the first game, he wired a shot by Jonas Hiller in overtime for the win. In the second game, he went coast-to-coast with more determination than a Cheetah on a three-legged Gazelle to set up Jamie McGinn's tying goal with...
