The Colorado Avalanche are still battling for a place in the Western Conference Final. We look back at some of their best social media posts of the last week.

As the Colorado Avalanche continue to fight for the series against the San Jose Sharks, Tyson Barrie has really stepped up his game.

Nikita Zadorov has also been there delivering the big hits that he’s known for.

The whole team is coming together to give it their all. Goaltender Philipp Grubauer even netted an assist during last Sunday’s game.

It’s always fun when the social media team requests feedback from the fans. This week they asked us who the unsung hero of the playoffs has been. Matt Nieto won it with 38% of the votes, having netted 4 goals and 3 assists in the postseason so far. Two of those goals were scored when the team was short-handed.

The media team is continuing to give us updates on the players’ playoff beards. Some are looking better than others.

They are also continuing their good luck superstition by having J.T. Compher throw a tape ball at one of his teammates. He may not always hit the target, but it’s the gesture that counts.

It’s always nice to get some insight from the players on how they think things are going.

With Matt Calvert out with an injury Ian Cole was left to keep their warm up tradition going by himself.

As the month of April came to an end it was time for the Avalanche to post their traditional one second every day video. I always look forward to these. It’s a nice little recap of the month, and it’s something fun and different that I don’t see any other teams doing.

Ian Cole’s playoff beard leaves all the others on the team behind (although he’s been growing it all year so I’m not sure it fully counts). However, it seems that the beard is now something of an interference.

As the team practiced at Pepsi Center ahead of Game 4, Gabriel Landeskog was doing his best to keep things loose and relaxed on the ice.

And he carried this attitude off the ice too.

Game 4 saw the Avalanche shut out the Sharks, and this particular goal had everyone in awe.

Since joining the team Cale Makar has moved in with Matt Calvert and his family. It’s always nice to see the older guys taking care of the rookies, and Cale is part of the Calvert family now.

The atmosphere was clearly electric in Pepsi Center, and this video captures it perfectly.

Erik Johnson is notorious for hiding his face whenever the social team has a camera pointed in his direction. There was clearly a bit of an upset when he didn’t do the same for the national media.

He made up for it the next day though. Sort of.

Meanwhile Tyson Jost was having his own brand of fun with the media team.

As the team head back to Denver for Game 6 after a loss to the Shark we’re now into elimination territory. I’m confident that the Avalanche have the skill and ability to win this series but as we’ve seen anything can happen. We’ll be back next week with more social media highlights where we’ll either be celebrating the win or commiserating the loss.
