Listen to “Belief” on Spreaker.

Jared Bednar called the Avalanche’s 4-3 overtime victory over Boston the best win of the season. Aarif and J.J. break down his comments about the buy-in and belief from his players. They also discuss the Avs’ strong third period, extending the home winning streak to 17 games and the overtime game-winner from Cale Makar. The guys then have a lengthy discussion about the Taylor Hall hit that knocked Nathan MacKinnon out of the game and whether Hall should’ve had to answer for it. The show also breaks down the Erik Johnson minor penalty and benching, improved team defense and the upcoming matchup in Chicago. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
