Today In Colorado Avalanche History

 

May 29th, 2002 - [You know, I wasn't going to run this, but since Saint Patrick is on my shitlist right now, what the hell.] Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals. The Avs are at home and up 3-2 in the series. And then...guh. Shanahan scores what would turn out to be the winning goal. In fact, starting with that goal the Wings go on a 9-0 run the rest of the way, knocking the shell-shocked Avalanche out of the playoffs.

The Avalanche franchise really hasn't been the same since, honestly. That was their last trip to the Conference Finals and they are 17-22 in the playoffs and have won 3 of 8 series since that dreadful moment.

And no, I will NOT be doing a TICAH for Game 7.
