Listen to “Avalanche Home Cooking” on Spreaker.

Aarif Deen and J.J. Jerez are back following the Avalanche’s come-from-behind victory over the St. Louis Blues. The guys break down how the game unfolded, Mikko Rantanen’s second hat trick of the season and what that crucial second point could do for this team’s morale. They then discuss what the returns of Valeri Nichushkin and Artturi Lehkonen have done for Rantanen since that dreadful Boston game last week. The guys then look ahead to the imminent returns of Darren Helm and Evan Rodrigues and attempt to build a lineup that’s missing only Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog. The show then shifts to a quick conversation on Bowen Byram, and if it’s time to worry about his playing career. They end with World Cup talk. All that and more on this morning edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
