The Avalanche fell 3-2 in overtime against Tyson Jost and the Minnesota Wild. Following the loss, Aarif and J.J. break down the game in its entirety. They touch on Cam Talbot’s performance for Minnesota, Nathan MacKinnon dropping the gloves and Nazem Kadri stepping up offensively once again. They then look at Kadri’s fight against Philadelphia on Friday and discuss if the stars should be fighting at this time of year. The guys also check in on how the newcomers have fared through their first few games with the Avs before looking at where the Western Conference playoff picture currently stands. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
