- The Flames are in Denver tonight, looking to build some space to maintain their current spot in the playoffs.
- The Avalanche are coming off an overtime loss to the Wild, but won the previous 5 games.
- The Flames are coming off an overtime win over the Blues at home, but have been horrible on the road.
- Peter Budaj has been playing well, and will likely get the start for the Avs. Calgary is playing the first of back to back road games (they play in Dallas tomorrow night), so I'd expect McLennan to get the green light tonight.
- The stats leaders for Colorado are Joe Sakic (50a, 77p), Milan Hejduk (28g), Ian Laperriere (115 PIMs), and Ken Klee (+11).
I have little optimism for the boys tonight and am tempted to use the power of the PVR, as I can actually get this game. But instead I will just try yelling at the TV nonstop, and see if that works instead...
Avs beat the boys tonight, 4-2. With goals from Jarome Iginla, Kristian Huselius, Sakic, Paul Stastny, Hejduk, and Wojtek Wolski...
