Not desperation time in Colorado

The Avalanche are hurt and out of the playoffs (for now), but enough is enough.

Welcome to the Mile High Hockey Lab! In this episode, Adrian, Evan, and Jackie talk about Injury return timelines, what to expect from this patch-work roster, and more!

Given the current situation, I think the Avalanche will take the OT point against the Rangers with open arms. Points are crucial anytime a roster is this depleted. Drop too many games, and it could be too little too late on this entire season. We aren’t there yet, thankfully.

Evan thinks the Avalanche may have rushed Valeri Nichushkin back into the lineup due to being so thin in terms of NHL talent. Let us know if you agree in the comments!
