Listen to “Presidents' Trophy” on Spreaker.

The Avalanche smoked the Los Angeles Kings to lock up their first Presidents’ Trophy in 20 years. Aarif and JJ share their in-game experience from Thursday’s 5-1 victory and discuss what the Presidents’ Trophy means to them. The guys then compare the 2021 Avs to that Stanley Cup-winning team in 2001 and give a line-by-line comparison. Colorado and St. Louis drop the puck for Game 1 on Monday night. What can we expect from that series? And who do Aarif and JJ think are going to win the other seven series around the league? All that and more on this lengthy playoff preview edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
