Bits and Links


So the Avalanche lost last night after falling asleep at the wheel. Found a few bits and pieces for you.

 

Sacco's thoughts on the game.

"I thought we really didn’t start on time," said Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco. "We had a few guys that weren’t ready when the puck was dropped and it ended up costing us a couple of goals. "We got ourselves back into the game and we played a pretty good first period after that." Coming into the contest off a loss to the Vancouver Canucks the night before, the Avalanche conceded two goals on the first three shots .

 

 

John-Michael Liles did some off-season improvements.

Liles, who turned 30 on Thursday, went to work in the off-season. He had surgeries to take care of a couple of nagging injuries, including to his shoulder, then he worked on his skating, lost a few pounds, ate better, trained more. When the season opened, he had assists in nine consecutive games — a first for an NHL defenceman.

 

Guess Craig Anderson will be out for awhile....

The Colorado Avalanche have recalled Jason Bacashihua from the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL.

 

Bisonnette has more All-Star votes than Kovie

If you don't think social media has power, consider this: Phoenix Coyotes forward Paul Bissonnette, who plays just five minutes a game but has a hugely popular Twitter account, received nearly 9,600 write-in votes for the 2011 NHL all-star game.

Bissonnette got more love from hockey fans than New Jersey Devils star forward Ilya Kovalchuk, who is on the ballot for the mid-season show in Raleigh, N.C.
