This week’s episode of Avalanche Talk examines the present state of the Avalanche defensive group as Colorado looks to make a run down the stretch. Hosts JJ Jerez and Ryan Boulding discuss the impact of Erik Johnson, on and off the ice, and how the Avs hope to fill the void he leaves behind. The conversation shifts to Nathan MacKinnon’s quick bounce back following his injury and the difficulty of the remaining schedule. The show ends with a conversation with Eurolanche founder David Puchovsky.
