9th in East
e're trying something a little different today here. The preview thread is going up first, with a separate game thread posting an hour before
kickoff er, puck drop off. The game thread will be, as before, the place to hang out during the game.
As for the game, on paper the 'Canes seem to be about as all-around blah as the Avalanche are. Since they are located in the east, however, they are just barely outside of the playoff picture. The Avs are still in it, of course, but need to keep winning.
Andrew Raycroft will start again. I believe this is the first time he's started 4 straight for the Avs, but I'm far too lazy to look it up. Paul Stastny is still doubtful. Goaliepost.com doesn't have Carolina's starter yet, so I'll assume Cam Ward for now and update later if I'm wrong.
|2008 - Andrew Raycroft||20||1123||12||7||0||1||55||2.94||541||486||.898||0|
|2008 - Cam Ward||47||2724||24||19||3||9||116||2.56||1288||1172||.910||4|
Finally, I'm happy to introduce another minor new MHH inovation: The Tale of the Tape.
