The Avs

Perhaps the biggest non-game news yesterday for the Avalanche was this: it appears the standoff between Altitude and DirecTV has ended:

According to Jim Martin, CEO of KSE, Altitude Sports has reached a multi-year agreement with DirecTV. The deal ends a two-month dispute with the distributor that prevented Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche fans from being able to watch their teams. [Mile High Hockey]

The Avs also played hockey last night, it wasn’t a great one.

In the press conference at the end of the game, coach Bednar spoke about readiness out of his players and starting on time. Looking at the quotes and video, he’s right. It’s not the coach’s job to motivate players to do their best right before a game, it’s their job to create a game plan that will win the game. There was a plan for this game, but the team didn’t execute. [Mile High Hockey]

Lucky number 13!
