Avs roll. Continue to blow minds.


I love these Avs.
Young, getting it done. Tonight, no 'Duk. no Svatos. no Foote. At this point does it matter?
So many guys on this team continue to step up, contribute, and make a difference in games.
Duchene? Ridic. Stewart? Ridic. Yip? Ridic. The list goes on and on.

Andy nearly had a shutout.
McLeod gets a phantom penalty for slashing which facilitated the lone Nashville tally.
This game was just flat-out exciting and impressive. The Preds (however retarded it is that they are from TN) are a quality team... but the Avs continue to play stellar hockey, and subsequently keep a hold on the NW. (please fade, Canucks)
If this was happening in the NFL or MLB, the Avs' story would be all in your face courtesy of ESPN etc. It isn't, but it's still damn fun to watch and root for this newfangled version of the Avs. Credit is due.
Gimme a Yip sweater damn it!

Do also need to give some props to the older contingent.
Hannan played another lowkey game that doesn't show on the scoresheet, but is a big factor in the current run.
Darcy with a pretty brilliant feed to Yip for the game winner.
My Avs?

Someday I'll get off my ass and do a Nugs post. I've been watching...

That's 5 in a row for those scoring at home. Big win for the division and conference. It's especially sweet considering there is probably not another Avs game for 6 days!

Where's my Wolski the goon jersey?

Wolski's first NHL fight, don't ya know.

Baby Avs? Ridic.

You can pretty much put these Avs posts on repeat. Another great win. Domination tonite. 6 in a row. Fuck da Canucks...
