The Avs

Before we get into the outdoor game, let’s talk about how the Colorado Avalanche beat the Boston Bruins to stay undefeated this season. Top line in the East vs Top line in the West and the West came out in front. Big night. Awesome result. [Mile High Hockey]

It took some favorable odds, as the officials were given two chances to swing the game with goaltender interference challenges against the Bruins — but ultimately, a strong offensive push from Colorado and another strong performance from Philipp Grubauer helped the Avalanche take home a win on a snowy Thursday night. They skated away with a 4-2 victory, improving to 3-0-0 to start the season as the only Central Division team without a loss on their record yet.


Babe Landeskog just keeps moving up the scoring ladder. Where do you think he ends up when it’s all said and done? Third? Second?? First???

The outdoor game at the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Falcon Stadium will mark the second time the NHL has brought a regular-season outdoor game to a U.S. service academy following the 2018 NHL Stadium Series™ between Toronto and Washington at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. The NHL is proud to honor the military through these games as is Navy Federal Credit Union through its title sponsorship.

The Game

The PWHPA and the San Jose Sharks played an exhibition game in San Jose. You can read all about it from our friends at PPP. You can also hear Kendall Coyne-Schofield mic’d up! [Pension Plan Puppets]

But Annie, I’m sure you’re wondering, how was the hockey? The hockey, just like what we saw in Toronto, was fast, high-energy, and high-scoring. The first game, a matchup between Team Flanagan and Team Stecklein, was dominated by Team Stecklein. Hayley Scamurra especially showed exactly how she played her way onto the US national team as a member of the Buffalo Beauts—she was a blast to watch, and her first goal was a jaw-dropping move on Katie Burt worthy of highlight-reel status.

This is a great story shared by Lauren about Ty Pelton-Byce of the NCAA and being OK with not being OK. [Madison dot com]

In the spring semester of 2018, he failed one class and got a D+ in another, a set of grades that, under Harvard’s code, triggered an automatic one-year leave of absence. With the benefit of hindsight, he said the classes weren’t overly hard for him but depression sapped his motivation.

These music choices are a combination of extremely good and extremely awful. I love it.

The AHL have released their 2020 Hall of Fame class. Robbie Ftorek, Denis Hamel, Darren Haydar and Fred Thurier all get the call to the Hall. [The AHL]

“Since 1936, the history of the American Hockey League has been defined by the people who have helped build upon its foundation of excellence,” said David Andrews, AHL President and Chief Executive Officer. “Each of these four individuals performed at the highest levels throughout their careers, and the AHL Board of Governors unanimously endorses the Selection Committee’s recommendation for their induction into the American Hockey League Hall of Fame as the Class of 2020.”
