Marek , you earned this beer.


Sweet OT backhander from Marek Svatos tonight to give the Avs a huge 2 points (every point is huge until (if) Sakic comes back). Leopold also getting a critical pound it in goal (I believe Phil Jackson likes to call them Brokeback Mountain goals). Almost went point less with a few flurries of shots late in regulation; late penalties almsot killng us again. Jose looking like his was 2 years ago in the playoffs. I think McNabb touched on a good point in the pregame, that these youngsters have to find their own identity without the veteran superstars like Sakic and Smyth. If anything the experience will make Stansny, Svatos, and Wolski better players.



A fine game to all! Captain, any first person comments?

It's great to get all of your sports scores through KTH. Getting home from a night in bars that don't show sports, I was glad to see a positive post about my Avs. Svatos has been solid. I hope he has a nice vodka buzz right about now.

Jose did look quite solid...there were flurries of chances at both goaltenders last night.

Yeah, I guess Jose has a good history against the Islanders.
