Listen to “Long Breaks” on Spreaker.

The Avalanche blew another 2-1 third-period lead and lost to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The show starts with a recap of the loss before reviewing the Avs’ first 10 games of the season as a whole. Aarif and JJ share their thoughts on all the inconsistencies around the team from injuries, to line combinations, long breaks between games and their on-ice play. The guys then break down some highs and lows from the first 10 games before previewing the upcoming two-game homestand, which could see more guys returning from injuries. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.

Produced by Patrick Stedman.
