I don't think there's a lot that needs to be said about this game tonight. The Avs need to win. The Avalanche played an excellent game on Monday - penalty kill notwithstanding - and all they got out of it was a lousy loser point. The Avs are now 6 points behind the Canucks in the NW Division race and just 1 ahead of the 9th-place team in the Western Conference.There's no need to panic yet...but a loss tonight would move my finger a lot closer to that big red panic button. The Avs have already had one disappointing loss in Edmonton this year...let's not make it two, okay?
