I'm still alive despite my lack of posts in recent days. The Avs are still alive, too.
Since declaring the season over in my last post, the team has picked up big wins against Detroit (3-0 this season!) and against Ottawa.
Things are beginning to look up because Adam Foote is back, Paul Stastny is returning at some point on this six-game road trip, and Joe Sakic has not had to plow any snow in the last few weeks. Thank heavens.
Going into tonight's game against the red-hot Capitals (7-1-2 in their last ten), Colorado is just seven points behind Edmonton for the 8th playoff spot. The season isn't technically over, but this road-trip will have to 100% go the Avs way.
On a personal note, I'll be at the Rangers-Avs game next Saturday. Hopefully the Avs haven't gone 0-5 in that time.
Oh, one more thing. I know Avalanche fans don't see a lot of Ovechkin, but it seems like everyone in the world has seen his beautiful goal from a couple of nights ago. Incredible.
Lets go Avs.
