The Carolina Hurricanes had their own Star Wars Night a week ago, but with all the black and red branding, they looked more like Sith than a “Bunch of Jedi”.

The Avs won last night, 4-1 over the Chicago Blackhawks. Sam Girard got fined for a late hit on Alex DeBrincat in the game, but the Department of Player Safety didn’t give him a suspension of any kind. He’s good to go for tonight.
