The Avalanche moved to Colorado from Quebec before the 1995-96 season, and it didn’t take long for them to bring a championship to Denver. During the season, the Avalanche acquired legendary goalie Patrick Roy from the Canadiens. The Canadiens infamously kept Roy in net for 9 goals against during an 11-1 loss, and Roy demanded a trade shortly after. The Avs profited immediately from Montreal’s loss. Roy became the starter for a team that already included stars like Peter Forsberg and Joe Sakic.
The 1996 playoffs were filled with major storylines and wild moments. In the second round, the Avalanche played the Chicago Blackhawks. Roy and Blackhawks forward Jeremy Roenick feuded in the media after Roenick was not awarded a penalty shot in a game that the Avalanche ended up winning. Roy argued that the call didn’t matter—he’d have stopped Roenick anyway. Roenick retorted that he’d beaten Roy on a breakaway in a previous game, but Roy ultimately ended the feud, saying “I can’t really hear what Jeremy says because I’ve got my two Stanley Cup rings [from his time in Montreal] plugging my ears.”
In the 1996 Western Conference Final, the Avalanche played their first playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings. The two teams had one of the most intense rivalries of the 90s and early 2000s. The Avalanche came out on top in the first meeting: they won the series in six games.
The Avalanche faced the Florida Panthers in the 1996 Stanley Cup Final. The series marked the first time that both teams were making their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Final. The Avalanche swept the series. They won the Stanley Cup after Uwe Krupp scored in triple overtime of Game 4.
The Avs won another Stanley Cup in 2001. The biggest storyline surrounding their second championship was Ray Bourque. Bourque had played 21 seasons with the Boston Bruins and was one of the game’s all-time best defensemen. But he had never won the Stanley Cup. He requested a trade to Colorado for one last championship run. After the Avalanche defeated the Devils in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, Avs captain Joe Sakic immediately handed the Stanley Cup to Bourque. Sakic’s handoff is one of the most famous moments in playoff history.
