This week’s episode of Avalanche Talk begins with a discussion on the difference between Colorado’s push for the playoffs compared to other late-season runs of the recent past. Hosts JJ Jerez and Ryan Boulding look at Tyson Barrie and Mikko Rantanen‘s contributions to Nathan MacKinnon‘s offense and debate which of the two MacKinnon needs more. The show then turns to a discussion on Colorado’s young guns and their need to elevate their games ahead of potential playoffs before wrapping up with a quick look at the Avs overtime struggles.
