After dissing Jose Theodore earlier today, I have no doubt that he will be bring his Dr Jeckyll personality tonight and completely stone the Avalanche. You might as well start preparing for that now. Even if Theodore struggles, the Caps have a defenseman with more goals than anyone on Colorado. Ouch.
One of my dirty little secrets is that I watch very little hockey other than Avalanche games. And I missed the game when the Avs last played the Capitals, so I'm kind of excited to see Ovechkin, Backstrom, Green and Semin in action. I'll still be pulling for the boys in burgondy, of course, but I wouldn't mind seeing a highlight reel goal like the one Ovechkin pulled off the other night.
For the Avs, Raycroft is in net for the third straight game. Paul Stastny is not quite ready. Darcy Tucker is (lucky us). John-Michael Liles has been placed on IR and Darcy Campbell has been recalled. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
