    Quite an impressive win over Las Vegas, last night. Bringing up the minor leaguers has really changed the vibe for this team. Agozzino, Greer, and Graves appear to be helping. If there is any problem with the new guys, it's that they aren't getting enough ice time. The Avs are only a point out of the Wild Card race. Should be interesting.

      Just a word about your team....first off, they beat my Jets last week in Winnipeg, and tomorrow they go at it again in Denver. Not boasting but we have a really good team these days. So if your team plays well again, I give them a pat on the back for staying tough. But things are looking good, as you have noted. Ottawa is so messed up with their management, that they gave you a potential #1 overall pick next year, plus the one you already have. Some say that if you tanked, you could end up with 2 great picks! Could happen either way, in the lottery. But I can see you having a shot at Hughes.

      Not to mention, you do have one of the very best lines in the game, as is.

      Good luck tomorrow, and hope you folks like what you see in the draft!

            Got em again last night Can. And very convincingly. They are going to mess around and get my hopes up again and probably fall flat on their face.

              Yeah, that's the way I feel. It's like a completely different team is on the ice after a 2-month trainwreck. The Avs are giving some playing time to some players who were brought up from the minors, and that appears to be helping. And splitting up one of the best lines in the NHL seems to be helping the team. Sadly, I can't help but believe this little burst of effort will be short-lived. I hope I'm wrong. But yeah, the Avs dominated, last night. Hope it continues.

                That was probably our most one sided defeat all season. it's a shame your team slid after such a great start, but you're a wild card as we speak. It's a tight conference, but you are certainly in the pack! Chicago may be a team to watch, as they've been coming on strong. But The Jets will not be looking at you as a weaker team!

                  They can

                      Solid road win against another playoff fringe team.

                      I didn’t realize Minnesota played back to back games since we took over the 8 seed and decided to also start playing hockey again. So I was disappointed to see us back out of a spot.

                      Also disappointed to see back to back against our nemesis in the preds today.

                          Playing good hockey right now - shutting out the preds at there home!

                          Impressive road trip

                            I certainly hope the Police are looking into who kidnapped the Avs players, and replaced them with the superior players we are seeing now.

                            Not to be a downer, but I'm not buying any of this. You can't play like one of the worst teams in the NHL for 2 1/2 months, and then turn a switch and be one of the better teams in the NHL. Sure hope I'm wrong.

                              My guess is it’s just a mini motivated hot streak. That won’t last long. Have a hard time believing the youngsters boosted this roster enough for them to deserve league MVP honors.
