The Avalanche were frustrated following an overtime loss in Nashville. Aarif and J.J. share their thoughts on the postgame comments after a questionable penalty call and the Avs squeaking out a point in a game they mostly trailed. They also look back at Monday’s victory over Seattle, Philipp Grubauer’s return and Pavel Francouz’s performance in his first scheduled start. Also, a conversation about Darcy Kuemper and the team’s goaltending in general. The guys then chat about Bowen Byram’s recent absence, Nicolas Aube-Kubel’s hot streak, the Hockey Diversity Alliance and Nazem Kadri’s role in the Tapeout Hate campaign. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
