HAT's the Way I Like It


I'm still buzzing from today's Rockies' Game 1 victory against the Phils, but let me be the first to post a hockey blog on KTH....


The first couple of periods for the Avs in their season opener looks mighty familiar to the end of last season when they almost pulled off an improbable/impossible run to make the playoffs and barely lost a game down the stretch. Unfortunately for the Avs, the team they were chasing was the Flames and not the Padres.


The kids are lighting the lamp and the game is fairly in control at 4-2. Who's dishin' 'em? Paul Stastny decided he'd start the season with a hat trick. Not a bad little idea actually. Fellow sophomore Wojtek Wolski has also chipped in a fairly sss-sick goal so far. The new and improved D looks pretty good thus far too.

There is a lot of time left in this game, but all signs are there is good reason to be excited about this season.
I wonder if they were giving out free A-Basin tickets at the game tonight.....

Stastny was fresh last night but also the recipient of 2 great passes, one by Brunette and the other by Hejduk's Czech buddy, Hlinski (sp?)! That line was dope. Love the Avs and love the NHL package preview on DirecTV for the next 7 days. Go Rockies bring it home for the sweep!

A little nerve-wracking down the stretch, but an awesome game nonetheless. Stastny already an MVP candidate?

Once Dallas made it 4-3 on that idiotic Too Many Men on the Ice penalty with a few minutes to go, I thought the KTH jinx might be spreading to hockey. Glad the Budaj stood tall down the stretch!

And agreed, Stastny did benefit from some sweet passes last night. He did cash 'em all in though!

Why do you fear the complete season NHL ticket, squints?
