Found November 06, 2011 on Kukla's Korner:
It may not be relevant to the Colorado Avalanche, but I wanted to share this hit by Linköping’s Sebastian Karlsson on Magnus Kahnberg of Frölunda Indians HC I decided to post it since I figure it’s a very newsworthy story in Sweden and I want to share it with our northamerican readers. It’s one of the worst headshots I’ve seen. Sweden’s having the same discussion about headshots right now that the NHL has had lately, although we have yet to crack down on it like the NHL has. The discussion right now is if it’s worth a season-long suspension. What do you think a Shanaban would’ve been worth?

Matt Duchene Dangles Through D

Colorado Avalanche center Matt Duchene completely danced through the Dallas Stars defense on Friday night, completing a hat trick with this beautiful goal. You have to wonder what the three pylons in Dallas uniforms were doing when they just let Duchene skate right between them and towards the net. Duchene had to avoid no checks, [...]

Avs can be optimistic after loss

The Colorado Avalanche lost 6-7 in OT against the Dallas Stars in what Steve Martin would’ve referred to as a wild and crazy game. I still believe that the Avs have reason to feel cautiously optimistic after their loss, even though the team saw several defensive breakdowns and didn’t get the usual quality of goaltending from Semyon Varlamov.

O’Reilly has what sounds like a touch of the flu or something close, while Stastny just took a “maintenance day” yesterday. Question for tonight...

Sacco says turnovers, playing too cute hurting Avalanche at home

Avalanche coach Joe Sacco has one explanation for the seemingly mysterious inability of his team to win at home, but is a winner on the road: turnovers and play that is too cute.

Postgame Avs-Stars: Last shot wins

One of the all-time strangest games tonight in Dallas. Avs lose 7-6 in overtime to the Stars, a game in which they led 2-0, trailed 4-2, led 5-4, led 6-5 and lost in the OT – in front of a terrible crowd at American Airlines Center. That NBA lockout is really helping teams like the Stars, eh? Matt Duchene’s third goal of the night was the highlight-reel marker of the year so...

Leftovers from today’s Ryan Wilson story: examining the 2009 Jordan Leopold trade

Tonight’s game against the Calgary Flames at the Pepsi Center wraps up “Father’s Weekend” for the Avalanche. The NHL players and their fathers traveled to Dallas on Thursday for Friday’s 7-6 overtime loss against the Stars and have spent the rest of the weekend together in Denver. Unfortunately for 24-year-old defenseman Ryan Wilson, who might be Colorado’s MVP thus far...

Avalanche loses in OT to Stars despite Duchene's hat trick

Avalanche coach Joe Sacco wanted more offense and he got it in the form of six goals. Unfortunately, the Avs gave up seven, falling in overtime 7-6 to the Dallas Stars on Friday night.
