The Colorado Avalanche are yet again on another winning streak. The streak began two weeks ago when Colorado hosted the New York Islanders beating them 3-1. The Avs travelled to Anaheim to face the Ducks and beat them 1-0. Colorado then traveled to L.A. to face the Kings where they beat L.A. 2-1 before returning home to face the Buffalo Sabres last Wednesday, beating them 3-2.

Over the weekend the Avalanche extended their winning streak to 5 games when they beat the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night in Carolina, and the Nashville Predators 3-2 in Nashville on Saturday night. Colorado then traveled to Detroit to face the Red Wings where the Avs beat the Wings 2-1.

This week the Avalanche are at home to host the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night before heading back out on the road to Canada to face the Canucks this Friday, and the San Jose Sharks this Saturday night. The Avalanche have now extended their lead over the Dallas Stars by 6 points and are within a single point of the Western Conference leading St. Louis Blues and are tied with the Eastern Conference 2nd place team, the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Denver Nuggets hosted the defending champs, the Toronto Raptors Sunday night at the Pepsi Center and after losing big the L.A. Clippers on Friday night, redeemed themselves by defeating Toronto 133-118. The Nuggets will host the Golden State Warriors this week and are on the road in Charlotte, and Cleveland heading into the weekend to face the Hornets and the Cavaliers before returning home to host the Milwaukee Bucks next Monday night.

The Nuggets are 5.5 games behind the Western Conference-leading L.A. Lakers and are tied with the L.A. Clippers.

The Denver Broncos are gearing up for the 2020 NFL Draft, after meeting with several players at the NFL Combine over the weekend. The Broncos are expected to add some offensive hardware in either free agency or the upcoming draft to give second year quarterback Drew Lock some worthy targets.

This week the Broncos parted ways with Ron Leary shoring up over $8 million in cap space, which will be of great help to Elway and company when the free-agency market begins in two weeks. The Broncos are expected to franchise tag Justin Simmons if the two are unable to work out a new deal for the 5th year defensive back.

The rumor mill has Denver showing interest in Combine star from Alabama, Henry Ruggs III who is a top three wide-out in this years draft. While Ruggs would be a nice addition to the offense, there are a number of different glaring needs that may require Denver to pass over the Alabama wide-out for an offensive lineman like Andrew Thomas from Georgia. Either way, the Broncos are sitting pretty with tons of cap space for both free agency and the draft.
