Game 17: Wild At Avalanche, Preview And Open Thread

What really needs to be said about this game?  If the Colorado Avalanche seeks to remain in first place in the Northwest Division, this game is a must-win.  There, I said it.  Must-win.  Must-win!  MUST-WIN!!!

If they do not want to stay in first place, then I guess it doesn't matter.  Lose away, Avs, lose away!

The game starts at 6:00 PM Mountain time, 8:00 PM Eastern.  I will not be home for the start of the game because I'll be at the rink watching live, local beer league hockey instead.  Where I live, you take every opportunity you can to see actual hockey on actual ice, even if it falls down a lot and isn't allowed to body check.  At least they play for a cool trophy.  

I should be home by the third period of the Avs game.  Hope to see a few of you hanging around making wise-ass remarks and posting tasteless pictures.  Don't let me down.
