Avalanche Turning Point: Great Defense Turns Into Dazzling Offense (+)




In the Turning Point, we’ll take a look at one moment in the previous Colorado Avalanche game that changed the momentum of the game.

A coach will always say that if you focus on defense, the offense will eventually come. To start the game against the Buffalo Sabres, the Avalanche completely locked them down in the defensive zone. It took the Sabres 18+ minutes to register a shot on net, and once the Avalanche got their offense going, it was pretty lopsided.

On the opening goal of the game, Cale Makar’s hard work in the defensive zone allowed Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen to do what they do best off the rush.
