Alright, so I was a little slow figuring out the hyperlinks, sorry about yesterday, now it should be better! As promised the bits and links will continue. There will also now be a "Quote of the night" so let's get our funny-and-smart caps on! You do want to be chosen, don't you? On with the show...
First, let's start with my favorite quote of the night from our recap:.... Drumroll please?
The sounds of a basketball game. Worst ever. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I can close my eyes and just listen to a hockey game and be happy.
and the winner is Beachie! Yes, I so completely agree! A hockey game is an incredible soundtrack.
Also to be noted :
Is there a way to change my screen name? I think it’s time to go Chia full time
Yes, from now on ChiAvs is to be known as Chia Pet. :)
Okay, onto some links:
This is a preview for tonight's game: CBS Preview,
"I'd like to be in, and it looks like I'm going to be, so just be ready and see what happens and help the team get some wins," said Budaj, who won his last two starts against the Flames in 2008-09 but didn't face them last season.
Another Preview for the Flames' game:
However, the Avs have yielded five goals during their last 13 shorthanded situations. They have taken 138 minutes in penalties through their first nine games, which is the fifth most in the league
But more frightening, if that's at all possible:
Colorado is reporting that John-Michael Liles (shoulder) and center Paul Stastny (face) are both "probable" for Thursday’s contest.
Canoe Gave JML some well-deserved attention. I am loving how his personality is shinning through this year. Seems like his points are helping him relax a little. He always seems to be joking and happy. The guys had to practice against a goalie tutor today:
"He was pretty good up high," Avs defenceman John-Michael Liles said jokingly of the big blue canvas stretched across the posts on the home side of the rink in practice.
Calgary Herald says that Sacco AND the guys have confidence in him.
"I have all the confidence in the world in Peter and, more importantly, his teammates have all the confidence in the world in him."
Oh, and one last thing: I Believe in Peter Budaj!
