Avalanche runs away from Senators in Andre Benoit's return to Ottawa

"Benoit from Bordeleau" — that probably wasn't the offensive combination most thought would be the big story line to a potential Avalanche win Sunday. That was the case, though, in Colorado's 3-1 victory over Ottawa. Andre Benoit, a former Senators player, converted Patrick Bordeleau's saucy crossing pass late in the second period to break a scoreless tie...

Colorado Avs get overtime win at Detroit

Although the Avalanche portrayed the Wednesday acquisition of Swiss goalie Reto Berra from Calgary as "insurance," it's safe to say that Colorado wouldn't have been bothered if Jean-Sebastien Giguere interpreted it as a challenge to return to his strong early-season form as Semyon Varlamov's backup. Giguere played well in his second start since the Olympic...

Semyon Varlamov brilliant as Colorado win at Chicago in OT

No matter what happened in overtime or a shootout, Tuesday was already a victory for the Avalanche. Playing with only 16 skaters much of the game against the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, the Avs rode the brilliant goaltending of Semyon Varlamov to a big point through an even first 60 minutes on the scoreboard. The Avs rewarded him with the extra point in overtime...

Alex Tanguay out indefinitely; Benoit out, Hunwick in tonight

The news isn’t good on Alex Tanguay. Patrick Roy said he’s out indefinitely with his knee injury. He wouldn’t elaborate on that, but it’s clearly going to be a while. Roy said he doesn’t know when he’ll be back. Andre Benoit, meanwhile, will miss tonight’s game against Florida with a minor wrist injury. He wanted to play, but doctors think he should sit this one out.

Patrick Roy Bringing Intensity and Structure to the Avalanche

Patrick Roy has brought intensity and structure with him behind the bench. Getty Images When Patrick Roy was named coach of the Avalanche, how he would do was uncertain. Would the greatest goaltender of all time (sorry Marty) be a good coach? Shouldn’t the Avs look for someone more seasoned after the fiasco with Joe Sacco? The more Roy spoke, the more convincing he became. At his...

Rick Sadowski: O'Reilly-Duchene-Downie line excels in OT win

Yeah, it looks like Ryan O'Reilly will be just fine as a left wing.

Travis Yost: On Christian Ehrhoff and Andre Benoit

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- It's mid-June, so naturally I've been thinking about random players like Buffalo's Christian Ehrhoff and Ottawa's Andre Benoit for a length of time. The off-season is kind of unhealthy in this sense, usually ending in some stream of consciousness entry that's more of a ramble than anything else. The two above-names...
