Watching the game last night, I finally realized the season was over. Of course, we all know that the Avs have effectively been out of it for a few weeks or so, but still, I can't ever remember watching an Avs game with less interest.
Maybe it was because it was a Thrashers game.
Maybe it was because the Thrashers actually got a shutout.
Maybe it was because I was watching Matt Hendrick play against an ice hockey team from Atlanta.
No idea. But judging from the activity on many of the Avs blogs, it's time to look ahead to next season. That means:
Let the games begin.
