The Cupcakes are going to be a bit dry today... I couldn't find too many stories.  Maybe that's a good thing with the score of the game.

 

We should have known that this would be a disaster...

Niklas Kronwall blasted the winner on a power play in overtime and Chris Osgood claimed his 400th win in the Detroit Red Wings’ 4-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center Monday night.

Why is it that as soon as a Milestone is involved ... the Avs have to let it be set?

There is bad news coming out of Pittsburgh. Well, for Bettman anyway. They are expecting warm weather and rain.  If the rain happens it could cause the game to be delayed or postponed. But I can't see the NHL wanting that to happen.

Rain is the major worry because it would unsafe for the players even if it falls only lightly. A light rain could freeze almost immediately after hitting the ice, creating an uneven surface that could quickly become unplayable.

According to AD at the Denver Post Marek Svatos is out of the KHL and back into the NHL.


Svatos played this year in the KHL, but wanted out. Now he has a new home in St. Louis or its minor-league affiliate, whichever one.

Looking at the NHL.com standings, the Avalanche are currently in 5th with 43 points. There are two other teams with 43 points. Eight place has 41 points. The guys need to start winning games, and soon. The game against the Oilers would be a good start.
