The Avalanche defeated the New York Rangers for the second time in a week and the band is back together to chat about their recent stretch of play. JJ returns from vacation to give Aarif a rapid-fire of 10 players, discussing how their seasons have gone to date. The guys also break down the COVID surge around the NHL, the Olympics and if the league should participate in them and a preview of the Avs’ upcoming games. They also give a little bit of extra time to Kurtis MacDermid after Jared Bednar raved about him postgame on Tuesday. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
Produced by Patrick Stedman.
