The Avalanche were called out after Wednesday’s loss by their coach for giving up five preventable goals. JJ and Aarif break down each of the lapses that led to Colorado’s defeat where it blew a two-goal lead in the first of two games against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The guys then discuss the fallout of Gary Bettman’s press conference on Monday, Jack Eichel’s trade to Vegas and reinforcements that could be joining the Avs’ lineup ahead of Saturday’s rematch at Nationwide Arena. All that and more on the 100th edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
