    Fansided: Colorado Avalanche: We're Cheering For You!

    When the Colorado Avalanche team hits the road for a stint of away games there's this sense of feeling as though your best friends have left you. At least for a little while.

    No longer can you trek down to Pepsi Center and talk face to face with the other fanatical Avalanche fans about the team; the wins and the close ones.

    And yet what I've noticed is there is just as much camaraderie that happens no matter where the Avs are playing; especially this season.

    On Monday afternoon Mountain Time, the Avalanche played in Washington.

    Mile High Hockey: Colorado Avalanche Game Day: Taking on the Tampa Bay Lightning

    The Avs are closing out their Florida vacation in late October with a dance with the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning won the Presidents Trophy last year, but have started this season without the same punch as they did last year. Nevertheless, this will still be a challenge for the Burgundy and Blue as the Lightning are starting to heat up after an awful start to the season.

    The Avalanche are on fire to start the season, having yet to lose in regulation this season and sit second in the NHL. However, this will be the second night of a back-to-back for the Avs, after having to go to overtime to beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 last night.

    All Things Avs: Chambers: Take it from Joel Quenneville, the Avs are deep and dangerous

    SUNRISE, Fla. -- When Coach Q speaks, hockey folks listen.

    First-year Florida Panthers coach Joel Quenneville, the four-time Stanley Cup champion and future first-ballot Hall of Famer, knows a thing or to about a team on the rise. And the former Avalanche coach who ranks second in all-time coaching victories with 892 sees a big climb coming in Colorado.

    "They're dangerous off the rush. They've got some real high-end talent. They can do a lot of different things," Quenneville said here Friday. "They've got four lines that are dangerous as well, so they've got really good balance up front.

    Mile High Hockey: Grubauer steals one as the Avalanche come back to beat Florida Panthers in overtime

    After suffering their first loss of the season Wednesday night in Pittsburgh, the Colorado Avalanche traveled to the Sunshine State for a weekend back-to-back. With Nathan MacKinnon nursing a lower-body injury, it looked as though Friday night was going to be one of those nights where the team was just off. The Avalanche came out flat and fell behind early. Luckily, the team was able to weather the storm long enough to find their legs. After a dominant second period, the Avalanche were able to come back and beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 in overtime.

    Fansided: Colorado Avalanche Can Surprise the NHL with a Win

    The Colorado Avalanche are expected to lose tonight. Apparently when you're on a back-to-back set going into Tampa, with the Lightning having rested the night before, it's a scheduled loss.

    Hmm, well, I hadn't known that. Hopefully the Avalanche players didn't know that either.

    To be honest, this could be a throwaway game if it needed to be. I opined in my keys for the roadie post that Colorado coming away with six of the available points on this road trip would be a success. My rationale is that's it's the longest of the season and against some tough competition.

    Denver Post: Nathan MacKinnon's OT goal lifts Avalanche over Panthers

    0

    SUNRISE, Fla. -- Nathan MacKinnon was a game-time decision with a leg bruise, Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said, but after scoring the overtime goal to beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 on Friday night, MacKinnon said there was no doubt he would play at BB&T Center.

    "I was playing the whole day," said MacKinnon, who skipped the morning skate. "I was just tired."

    MacKinnon didn't look tired in what turned into a track meet with the Panthers. He logged 21:36 and had a team-tying five shots, including the winner 3:03 of OT.

    Fansided: Colorado Avalanche: Random Thoughts after OT Win in Florida

    The Colorado Avalanche won a sloppy game in Florida, ultimately beating the Panthers 5-4 in overtime.

    The game got off to the kind of high-octane start you expect from the Avs. Unfortunately, it was the Cats doing all the scoring. Colorado was quickly down two goals as Florida inflicted on them what we prefer to see Avs players doing.

    Over the next period-and-a-half was a cat-and-mouse game as the two teams kept trading goals -- and penalties. Next came a really weird snooze-fest of a third period in which neither team scored. I don't want to say they were both playing not to lose, but... some might say it.

    Denver Post: Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon (leg/hip bruise) questionable at Florida

    0

    SUNRISE, Fla. -- Star center Nathan MacKinnon will be a game-time decision Friday when the Avalanche plays the Florida Panthers. MacKinnon suffered a deep bruise to his leg/hip in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss at Pittsburgh and did not participate in Friday's morning skate.

    "His leg's pretty sore. He got hit there the other night by (Patric) Hornqvist," Avs coach Jared Bednar said. "I give him a lot of credit -- I know he was hurting on the bench the whole game and he battled through it and ends up getting us a big goal in the third period and has a really good third period for us.

    NumberFire: 4 NHL FanDuel Values to Target on 10/18/19

    Justin Schultz is a fantastic play tonight as he continues to put up points. What other value players should you consider on this six-game slate tonight?

    Andreas Athanasiou, Center, Detroit Red Wings

    FanDuel Price: $4,900

    Even though he plays on the second even-strength line, Andreas Athanasiou is slotted in on the Detroit Red Wings top power-play unit.

    Mile High Hockey: Colorado Avalanche Game Day: Taking on the Florida Panthers, possibly without Nathan MacKinnon

    Opponent: Florida Panthers (2-4)

    Where: BB&T Center- Sunrise, FL

    Puck drop: 5:00 pm MT

    Watch: ALT

    The Colorado Avalanche were the last undefeated team in the NHL, but they too proved to be mortal when they fell 3-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins in over time on Wednesday night. Tonight's game is the third of six games on their first road trip of the season.

    Ian Cole returned early from hip surgery to play against his former team. In just his second game this season, Cole scores his first point of the season on Wednesday, and logged over 16 minutes of ice time.

    Fansided: Colorado Avalanche Must Get Back to Basics in Florida

    The Colorado Avalanche suffered their first loss of the young season when they fell to the Penguins in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. To be frank, they were lucky it was their first loss. All along their five-game winning streak they'd been remarking that they were winning despite not playing their best hockey.

    Good morning in Pittsburgh: You have to play your best hockey to win. And that's what they discovered. At least they escaped with a point, so they're still on a six-game points streak.

    I said in a post about the entire road trip that I'd be happy of the Avs got at least half the points available, so a total of six.

    Denver Post: Avalanche (5-0-1) moves into south Florida for games against the Panthers, Lightning

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Riding a six-game points streak to begin the season, the Avalanche hopes to bounce back from a 3-2 overtime loss Wednesday at Pittsburgh.

    The Avs (5-0-1), who traveled here Thursday, face the Florida Panthers Friday night to begin a consecutive-night stretch in south Florida. They visit the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday before heading west and stopping in St. Louis for a Monday matchup against the defending Stanley Cup-champion Blues.

    Coach Jared Bednar said he'll likely play both his goalies in Florida and he expects their teammates in front of them to play better.

    Denver Post: Avalanche falls short against Penguins, drops first game of season in overtime

    0

    PITTSBURGH -- Brandon Tanev scored a shorthanded goal in overtime to defeat the Avalanche 3-2 and prevent Colorado from tying club-record 6-0 start to the season.

    MacKinnon tied it 2-2 just 2:56 into the third period. Pittsburgh defenseman Justin Schultz lost the puck at the offensive blue and Mikko Rantanen took it the other way, playing give-and-go with MacKinnon before MacKinnon roofed it over the shoulder of goalie Matt Murray.

    The Pens took a 2-1 lead into the third after breaking the 1-1 tie with 4:30 remaining in the second period. By roofing the puck past Grubauer from the doorstep, Jake Guentzel extended his team lead in goals with his fifth.
