Listen to “Defense First” on Spreaker.

Aarif Deen and J.J. Jerez are back to break down the Avs’ 2-1 overtime over the Montreal Canadiens. They start the show discussing Colorado’s new defense-first focus, which was successful during the homestand. They then get into the injuries and if there is any concern about Gabriel Landeskog, Darren Helm or others that are currently out. The show ends with a look ahead at the upcoming schedule, and the team’s opportunity to continue to comfortably build on their positioning in the standings. All that and more on this quick hit edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
