It's the end of the first period against Tampa and I have confirmed that the sky has fallen. Believe it or not, I saw the following:
Wojtek Wolski is driving the net and has two goals.
Tyler Arnason has two assists and has only made one stupid play so far.
Andrew Raycroft has been solid and has stopped every shot that he has faced.
A power play goal was scored (by the Avs!)
Marek Svatos has assisted on all three goals.
Ian Laperriere leads all forwards (on either team!) in ice time.
Then I punched myself in the face. After the shock wore off I checked NHL.com and it turns out that all of the stuff I saw actually happened.
And I just put a giant jinx on the game. Sorry Colorado fans. I had to do it before my head exploded from this random bit of success.
Avs win 4-3. David Jones provided the fourth goal, which at the time, put the Avs ahead 4-1 and it seemed as though cruise control would be set. Tampa battled back to make it a 4-3 game and the Avs were forced to kill a four minute double minor in the final ten minutes of the third. It certainly wasn't as easy as it appeared to be.
1. Wojtek Wolski (2 goals, driving the net, excellent penalty killing)
2. Marek Svatos (3 assists=reeeeeeeeaally?)
3. Cody McLeod (Won a fight - this game was interesting)
