Nazem Kadri is one of the main reasons the Colorado Avalanche are one win away from the franchise’s first trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in more than two decades.

They will have to take this step without him.

Kadri is out for at least the remainder of the Western Conference Finals against the Edmonton Oilers after being injured on an illegal hit by Evander Kane in Game 3. Avalanche lead 3-0 and will sweep Monday night in Edmonton.

“He’s out for the series, maybe longer,” coach Jared Bednar said Sunday. “We should find out in the next few days. My thoughts are the same on the shot: it’s a dangerous shot.

On Sunday, the NHL suspended Kane for Game 4.

The Oilers are looking to become the fifth team in league history to win a series after falling 3-0.

Veteran defenseman Duncan Keith, who played for Chicago in 2011 when the Blackhawks erased a 3-0 deficit before losing to Vancouver in seven games, said the pressure is now shifting to Colorado.

“Not many people expect us to do much now, so we’re just going to play hockey and do what we’ve been doing all year,” Keith said. “Take one game at a time, one day at a time and anything can happen.”

Assuming the Avalanche don’t join the questionable roster of teams to take a 3-0 lead and lose a best-of-seven series, they could be without Kadri for part or all of the Stanley Cup Finals. against the New York Rangers or back-to-back defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

It would be a blow given that Kadri made the case for Conn Smythe Trophy consideration as playoff MVP. He scored six goals and added eight assists in over 13 games before being injured on Saturday night.

Kadri didn’t return after Kane sent him crashing his left arm into the boards at 1:06, a hit that was reviewed and called a major penalty.

“I don’t like it,” Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog said of the hit. “They are the ones that send shivers down your spine, and you are taught from an early age that you don’t do that, and especially at this distance from the boards. It’s a dangerous game and, yeah, I don’t know what else to say.

Kane said he was trying to “step on” Kadri, and, “Unfortunately, he went into the boards awkwardly and injured his hand.”

Unsurprisingly given hockey’s shroud of secrecy, particularly during the playoffs, the Avalanche did not reveal Kadri’s injury or announce how long he would be out, beyond Bednar’s statement on the rest. from the Serie. They are already without defenseman Samuel Girard, who broke his sternum in the final round against St. Louis, and winger Andre Burakovsky, who blocked a right-leg shot in Game 1 of this series.

“Injuries are part of the game – they happen,” Bednar said. “You hope not, but certainly at the speed of the game things can happen. The guys aren’t going to shy away from confrontation, even in some dangerous areas, because every play is so important.

Nicolas Aube-Kubel, claimed off waivers from Philadelphia in November, should replace Kadri. The depth, bolstered by general manager Joe Sakic’s acquisitions of defenseman Josh Manson and forwards Artturi Lehkonen and Andrew Cogliano, helped Colorado win the Central Division and earn the top seed in the West.

Along the way, the Avalanche went a perfect 6-0 on the road. Another in Edmonton on Monday would knock the Oilers out of the playoffs for a second straight year and send Colorado to the Finals for the first time since 2001.

Playing road hockey has become a staple for Nathan MacKinnon and Co. in the playoffs. Although MacKinnon thinks the Avalanche’s details are better at home, there might be something to be said for perhaps the fastest team in the NHL slowing things down and getting the job done at home. outside.

“You don’t have to please anyone,” he said. “We’re here to hopefully make it boring and gross and just play a good two-way game. There’s no show to do when we’re on the road, and it feels like we’re playing the right way.
