Daily Cupcakes: January 10th, 2010

DENVER - NOVEMBER 09: I'm hoping that both Kevin Shattenkirk #8 and Jonas Holos #6 of the Colorado Avalanche play, and play well, against the Detroit Red Wings. (Photo by Doug Pensinger/Getty Images)

Shall we start with some good? DDC found Copper and Blue  giving Joey Hishon some love.

  The man just behind Schwartz is another relatively small scoring forward who's had problems with injuries - the Avalanche took quite a bit of flack for drafting Joey Hishon as high as they did, but so far, he looks awfully good in junior.

A Red Wing - Avalanche Preview  

The loss dropped Colorado to 1-4-2 at home since a 7-0-1 stretch there. The Avs are 1-2-1 on a five-game homestand.

The Avalanche website is reporting that Peter Budaj will get the nod against the Wings.

Peter Budaj will be in goal on Monday when the Colorado Avalanche takes on the Detroit Red Wings at Pepsi Center.

The media is picking up on the fact that Avalanche fans are... shall we say disappointed by the the play of Matt Hunwick.

On a team that scores as often as the Avs do and how much they give up goal-wise, both his offensive and defensive are frustrating and people want to see a change made in favor of Jonas Holos.
