Avalanche No Longer A Surprise Team

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Maybe it means nothing, or maybe it means everything. The Colorado Avalanche -- we've vowed to stop calling them the 'surprising' Avs - defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Wednesday night in front of a sellout crowd at the Pepsi Center, their fourth win in five tries this season against the defending Stanley Cup champs.

The good thing when it comes to these teams is we may well find out what all this means in about a month. The win pushed the Avs ahead of the Blackhawks into second place in the Central Division by a single point. Both teams have 16 games remaining in the regular season. If the playoffs started today the two teams would face each other in the first round.

more plus Custance on the Ducks, LeBrun on the Canucks and Strang on Rich Peverley...

Maybe it’s beginners luck, or, maybe Roy is a pretty good Coach.

I think good Coach, and I’m not surprised.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

LeBrun on the Canucks. Writes everything we already know. And he gets paid to write that!
