Coming off another high-scoring affair in Philadelphia, the Avalanche are set to complete their five-game road trip at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. Aarif and guest co-host Patrick Stedman break down Colorado’s 7-5 victory, which followed a 6-5 overtime loss in Ottawa. They talk Justus Annunen’s debut, Cale Makar’s insane goal and the Avs’ shorthanded goal-scoring prowess. Aarif then speculates the idea that Hockey Canada could name both Makar and Devon Toews to the Olympic roster and play them together. The guys then chat about Colorado’s historic goal-scoring pace, which we haven’t seen in the NHL in over 25 years and close out the show with injury updates. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.

Produced by Patrick Stedman.
