Fellow Swedes Gabriel Landeskog and Carl Soderberg are clicking early on in training camp.
"Good players click together. That's usually the case," Soderberg said. "We're used to the same kind of hockey from the beginning. I guess we still have Swedish hockey in us." Landeskog, the Avs' captain, also believes that sharing a common language with Soderberg could also help the duo, but that isn't set in stone. "The language will help," Landeskog said of possibly calling for the puck in Swedish. "I haven't played with a Swedish linemate for a while (since the 2014 Olympics). Most likely we're going to stay in English. If we're three Swedish players on the ice, it would be different, but we'll see how it goes." Sep 20 - 9:06 AM

The Colorado Avalanche were officially eliminated from playoff contention on Saturday.

"We shot ourselves in the foot a few times this season," said Landeskog. I can think of a couple of road trips ago and losing to Edmonton twice, losing to Calgary, those are things that ... I could obviously go on all night long about where there were games we couldn’t afford to lose. That’s what I mean by shooting ourselves in the foot. It definitely stings. It’s a feeling you don’t like as a hockey player. We play for one reason, and that’s to win. And when you realize you don’t have a chance to go to the dance any more, it’s certainly tough."

Feb 19 - 1:35 AM

Gabriel Landeskog scored his 11th goal of the season after the puck appears to have deflected off his chest and in. The Avs still fell to the Rangers 6-3 on Thursday night.

The goal needed a long review to verify whether or not it was legitimate, but the goal stood primarily because the call on the ice was a "goal", and the review turned up inconclusive. Counts in the books just the same, though. The Captain now has 32 point through 55 games this season.
