Game 61 Preview: Edmonton Oilers at Colorado Avalanche


Game_61_medium

Well now we've won a game. The drought is over. No time to celebrate as Avalanche Kryptonite rolls into Denver tonight to see if they can stomp out our excitement. Edmonton comes into town having won 3 of their last 4 but, just like us, are coming off a game last night, albeit a less successful one than ours. No "but I am le tired" excuses allowed, boys.

With the Avs losing like mad crazy over the past month, we've slipped closer to Edmonton in the standings than to a playoff spot. Nobody really likes being compared to the baddie in the bottom so if we can continue to see the team we saw last night, 2 points is exactly what we should get out of this. Hopefully karma doesn't come back and strike the Avs down simply because I've taken to mocking Edmonton constantly every time I have to write about them.

Instead of mocking them today, though, I'm going to reach out to the MHH community and ask you guys find a way to equal your efforts from yesterday's phenomenal teamwork to post my favorite gameday thread pic to date. If y'all can do that, the Avs can't lose. If you fail, the Avs fail. Pressure's on, Photochoppers.

Go Avs ;D
