Listen to “Mindset Shift” on Spreaker.

Following an overtime victory over the Montreal Canadiens, Gabriel Landeskog and the Avalanche are not pleased with their recent play. Aarif and J.J. break down the new mindset shift from the team — how mediocrity is no longer acceptable within the room despite their winning streak. The guys also chat about overtime success and how Jared Bednar has adjusted his approach in the extra frame. The show then shifts to the hot stretch from both Darcy Kuemper and Pavel Francouz and the stability they’ve provided before a fun discussion about a trade deadline idea that the Avs should entertain. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.

Produced by Patrick Stedman.
