[I'm going to start giving brief previews of games played by the Avs' Northwest Division rivals on a (hopefully) daily basis. You know, just to read myself type.]
Vancouver (4-5-0) VS Detroit (6-2-1)
Can't say I'm rooting for either team in this one. I'd love to see Vancouver keep losing due to their complete lack of offense and thin defense, but I just can't pull for the Wings (even if I've officially declared the rivalry dead). I hope both teams lose.
[Final score: Detroit 3, Vancouver 2]
Minnesota (7-0-1) VS Calgary (4-3-2)
Again, this is a game I wish both teams could lose. On one hand the Wild need to start losing if the Avs will have any chance at all to catch up. On the other hand, I hate the Flames. They've officially replaced the Wings as my least favorite team in the NHL, and I hope they never win another game. I'll have to flip a coin on this one.
[Final score: Calgary 5, Minnesota 3]
