The Great Wall of Theo


Talk about coming up big when you need to....The Avs, led by another brilliant job in net by Jose, come up with a very, very large victory against the Flames. It was a very blue collar effort by the Avs, who were solid defensively and saved by Theo when there was a rare breakdown. Getting a shutout against Iginla and that f*ck Phaneuf. Thank god, we were able to capitalize on a couple of the few opportunities and put a couple past Kiprusoff. Good to see Peter back on the ice, who didn't have a great game, but provided some spark. Things got rather chippy in the 2nd period. Would've been nice to see Footer involved in the many scrums that were breaking out. Get that hip fixed, my friend.

Avs fans can now exhale, for the time being......things are so tight in the NW Division, the stress ain't going to subside anytime soon. Let's hope myself and ST can reverse our inhouse luck at the Can on Wed.

Exhaling...if only for now. It's all playoffs at this point.

Always weird watching Flames games. You got the Iginla's and the Fucking-Phaneuf's...but you also have to deal with names being called by Haynes/McNab that resonate with an Avalanche past. Yelle. Tanguay. (and to a very lesser extent, though I'm always surprised he's still playing) Nolan. Just saying it's always weird hearing players that aren't (and haven't been in years) on the Avs anymore being called on the broadcast. I don't forget easily...

I was thinking the same thing last night. How come Yelle didn't join the trade deadline reunion party? Kind of wish we had one more down the stretch with the Flames, as it's obvious these teams don't like each other.

And yes, the playoffs are already underway as far as the Avs are concerned.
