Is a win in over the Ducks.
Since the Nordiques moved to Colorado in that wonderful Cup-winning, Roy-aquiring year, I've been an avid fan on each and every Avalanche player to don the snow covered A (except, of course, for Darius Kasparaitis). I know we're in Tank Mode, and I'm all for that as it's good for the rebuilding process (Just ask the Broncos, assuming there's a draft this year). But I have a wonderful girlfriend who got me two of the greatest presents ever: A Stastny unipron and 3rd row tickets for Monday's game in Anaheim, right on the top of the circles. We have our hotel booked, we leaving Boise, ID on Saturday morning (looooong drive), and will be staying all week. I'd love to see Dutchy rock the place. Boods or Elliott stand on his head. EJ lay someone out. Duke school whomever's in net. And Footer one last time. I really wish I could have seen CGDS play, never got that chance.
I know, it's asking a lot. Just getting to see them will be awesome. But it'd be even more awesome to have them win so me and the lady don't feel too awkward in our Stastny/Roy jerseys in a sea of birds.
Oh, and to Mark Olver, I hope you get your first NHL goal while I'm there. It's been a long time since you were in Boise, and since we played P.A.L. Bantams, I'm glad you made it to the show.
