Listen to “Division Rivals” on Spreaker.

The Avalanche bounced back in a big way with two wins over their division rivals to get to .500 on the season. Aarif and JJ start the show with a recap of Saturday’s victory over Minnesota and who stuck out on the ice. They specifically touch on big performances from Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog, Erik Johnson and Darcy Kuemper. They also discuss the dirty hit on Bowen Byram before breaking down the previous game against the St. Louis Blues and all the happenings around Nazem Kadri, Justin Faulk and Jordan Binnington. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
