I missed the whole game. They shouldn't schedule games when most people won't be around hockey fans. In my case, I was in a room full of people who liked basketball, the Eagles, and apparently, hated the year 2008. I like hockey, and for the most part, I liked 2008. Oh well, I missed it all. The Avs lost. It's upsetting, but....
I guess Avalanche fans will root for the Wings because the Blackhawks are closer in the standings, but does any Avalanche fan really want to see the Wings not get embarassed on the national stage? I know I do.
Should be a fun event, a fun day. Everyone enjoy the first game of 2009.
