The Colorado Avalanche are making a final push for the playoffs. We look back at the best social media posts over the past couple of weeks.

I’ve just got back from ten days in Denver where I attended several Colorado Avalanche hockey games. This is why this Post to Post is two weeks worth of social media posts. I actually found myself on one of the Twitter posts which was pretty exciting.

The mystery of what’s in Patrik Nemethβ€˜s backpack continues to be unsolved, and fans have taken to trying to get answers any way they can.

Players are not exempt from the social media team (gently) making fun of them. After laughing about a funny photo of Colin Wilson the media team supplied some of their own.

During the week Denver was hit by a Bomb Cyclone, which closed down most of the city, and also took out Facebook and Instagram. It’s hard to generate interactions with your content when two of the main platforms aren’t available.

And thus the gif party was born.

There are too many gifs to include but I did enjoy the media team taking yet another opportunity to make fun of the weird faces Colin Wilson makes.

Ryan Graves turned up at the Match Game winner’s event wearing a Mike Tyson shirt with everyone misinterpreted because it was also Tyson Jostβ€˜s birthday.

The team wore special jerseys for Military Appreciation night and they looked great!

Patrik Nemeth continues to tease the media team with his backpack secrets.

Colin Wilson opted for a casual look while warming up on Military Appreciation Night, and he looked good!

On St Patrick’s Day Patrik Nemeth continued his trend of staring at the camera, while showing off his green tie.

Some of the team opted not to wear any green, which is especially strange since Colin has a green suit that he often wears before games.

Tyson Barrie is one of my favorites so it was fun to see him score two goals in the last game I attended before flying home.

Despite being out 4-6 weeks with an upper body injury Gabriel Landeskog was back on the ice in a no-contact jersey after a week, and getting in the way of photos like he’d never been away.

It’s really fun seeing behind the scenes footage of how the media team get some of their material.

The team got flowers and a card for Lauren Gardner to say goodbye as she leaves Altitude for pastures new. I was lucky enough to get to meet Lauren a couple of times while I was in Denver and she is absolutely one of the kindest and most genuine people I’ve met. It’s nice to see how well loved she is by the team.

It was Erik Johnsonβ€˜s birthday on Thursday so, of course, the media team had to make a bit of a joke about it.

Tyson Barrie is now the first defenseman in Avalanche history to tally 300 career points. It’s been so wonderful to see the whole team, but Barrie in particular, step up while Gabriel Landeskog is injured. It’s clear why they gave him the A to wear while Landeskog is out.

Lauren made her final appearance on the Avalanche podcast this week and it was really interesting to listen to. She and Marc Moser did their usual thing of breaking down where the team is at the moment, and their usual banter, but Lauren also talked about her career working at Altitude and some of her most memorable moments. It’s definitely worth a listen.

Shout out to Tyson Jost for not only wearing a fantastic pinstripe suit but also, apparently, wearing socks that match.

He may have forgotten to wear it on Saint Patrick’s Day but Colin Wilson’s green suit was back. He also tallied a goal and an assist at this game, leading to him being named First Star. Clearly the suit is good luck and he should be encouraged to wear it more often. The media team clearly agree with this assessment.

It’s always fun when the media team get as passionate as we do over things that happen on the ice.

Evidently Matt Calvert feels strongly that Colin Wilson should claim Winnipeg as his home town, despite Wilson being born in Connecticut.

Next. Best Social Media Week 23. dark

The Colorado Avalanche continue their push for the playoffs tonight in Chicago. We’ll be back next week with more social media highlights.
