Colorado Avalanche defenseman Jan Hejda left the game against the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday after injuring his knee in the first period and did not return.

Talbot plays key role as Avalanche get better of Flames

Maxime Talbot scored the tying goal and set up the go-ahead score 54 seconds later in the second period to propel the Colorado Avalanche to a 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Friday. Colorado tied the game 1-1 by capitalizing on a mistake by Calgary goaltender Karri Ramo, who had played superb until that point. Ramo was playing the puck behind the net, and his soft backhand pass...

Cousin of Avalanche’s Nick Holden holds up sign about how the two use to bathe together (pic)

Awk—–ward. That’s about the only word that can be used to explain the above sign that Colorado Avalanche defenseman Nick Holden was greeted with as his team faced the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night at Rexall Place.

Edmonton Oilers star Taylor Hall gets treated like Tom Jones after notching hat trick (photo/video)

At 22 years old, Taylor Hall may be a relative youngster by NHL standards, but the Edmonton Oilers star received treatment befitting Tom Jones — or some other slick, sexy and seductive Welsh heartthrob (if there is another one) who is aging yet remains ageless in the eyes of his loyal female fans — on […]The post Edmonton Oilers star Taylor Hall gets treated like Tom Jones...

Avalanche bounces back from bad loss with win over Flames

Following an embarrassing six-goal loss a night earlier to the Western Conference's worst team, the Avalanche required a rally Friday night to avoid losing to a similarly weak team and bowing twice in Alberta. Amid a cold spell that dipped thermometers to minus-38 degrees Friday morning, Colorado answered the bell in this Canadian province, beating the Calgary Flames 3-2. The...

Avalanche-Canucks Preview

The Colorado Avalanche are playing much better away from home under first-year coach Patrick Roy after finishing with the fewest road victories in the NHL last season. The Avalanche will look to end an eight-game losing streak in Vancouver when they visit the Canucks on Sunday night. Colorado (20-7-0) finished the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign with a 4-16-4 road mark, but the...

Argumentum ad Antiquitatem

When the injured Jan Hejda was replaced on the top pair with Nate Guenin I was initially boggled at how very smart hockey people, such as Patrick Roy and his staff, can be so wrong about a player or players as he continues to undervalue the contributions of Tyson Barrie. I was listening to my favorite podcast on the internet, You are not so Smart, when the host talked about Argumentum...
