The Avalanche completed a nearly insurmountable comeback, a 5-4 overtime victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. Aarif and J.J. break down how it all went down, from Pavel Francouz’s performance to Nathan MacKinnon’s shooting spree and the deafening Ball Arena crowd. They also discuss the line matchups and how Jared Bednar was able to take advantage of a shortened Avalanche bench. The guys then look back to Thursday’s 7-1 triumph over the Winnipeg Jets before looking ahead to another four-game week. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
