I need to know who to start beaking in the first round of the playoffs with Winnipeg/Colorado.

From: x-man

My two least favorite teams...

From: JohnMC
15-Apr-24
If Winnipeg had a football team we would probably know who they were playing in the playoffs, and as of late we would know it is not the Broncos. But at least you aren't talking soccer ;)

From: Grey Ghost

Yup, DU is an amazing hockey program. A record 10 national championships this year.

The last 48 hours or so have not gone well, have they???

I’ll be pulling for them, but I have certainly had to temper my expectations…..

We will trade Georgie for hellybuck about now.

Allowing 6 or 7 goals a game won't get us deep at all.

I’m in Colorado. I spent my first honeymoon in Winnipeg.

The things about the Avs is we can’t watch them on tv here in Colorado - thanks to the ownership.

Ahh the Avalanche and Red Wings back when.

to me one of the all-time great sports moments is when Darren McCarty and Claude Lemieux finally meet.

The season prior Claude Lemieux drove Chris Draper into the glass, crushing his face

so no retribution was able to be had until the following season. and Darren being drapers big brother dealt with Lemieux properly

Unfortunately Claude Lemieux suffered for years with death, threats, and real threats

The Patrick Roy vs Chris Osgood fight is one I’ll always remember. A great rivalry back in those days.

Do you think the Jets will actually be able to sell out their arena now that they made the playoffs?

Used to have 7th row season tix during the Sakic-Forsberg-Roy era. I'm a fan. But it became a big hassle to attend or give away, I don't live in Denver, and I don't like traffic.

In Colorado, but pulling for the wings!!!! Still alive after tonight’s comeback. Avs-Redwings was some of the best hockey ever played back in the day!!! Go Wings!!:)

“Mr Hockey” Gordy Howe was a beast. His wife Colleen Howe was born in my county seat. Sandusky Mi.

They built a nice hockey arena in Sandusky in her name. Gordy came to events there often.

Mrs Hockey is also in the Hall of fame for her contributions to Hockey in the lower leagues

That's a wicked pic altitude. Looking forward to the playoffs this year. For once I do believe we have a team that has a shot. Tough in the small market that no one wants to live in.

Well Game 1 was flipping insanity! Not sure the ticker can handle 7 of those. What a ride

From: Grey Ghost
22-Apr-24
That WAS a helluva game. APauls. I would have never guessed the Jets would beat the Avs in a 7-6 shoot-out. I was expecting low scoring defensive hockey, considering the Jets defense and outstanding goalie. If all the games are like last night, it will be a fun series. I still think the Jets will win it, unfortunately.

22-Apr-24
Damn! To think Gordy got that big before ’roids were even A Thing!

(Looks like my kid!)

Before there were the Rockies, I learned to skate on the home ice of the Denver Spurs — or at least their practice facility…. Hampden & the Valley, back when that was The Edge Of They Universe….

If Annunen would have been healthy Georgiev likely would have been yanked. Justus has been the better net minder of late.

From: Grey Ghost

On the bright side, Colorado has the Nuggets who are looking good to repeat as Champions. And they have the best player in the league who isn't flashy or mouthy. He just knows how to play the game like it was intended.

Yeah, I'm an all around Colorado sports fan. Always have been.

From: APauls

Well, better team won tonight. Man this has been some insane hockey

last night's game was worth missing out on some sleep. And that's coming from a guy that's usually in bed by 9:30. Go Avs....

That 2nd period performance by the Avs was incredible.

From: Jaquomo

With the Avs missing their second best player, I don't expect them to get past the second round if they manage to get out of this one. They miss Landy..

It is a great time to be a life long Colorado sports fan! I LOVE the Nuggets and I'm becoming more of a hockey fan every year. The Rockies.... Ugh! Broncos.... time will tell but I'm optimistic

From: bigeasygator

As a former college - and technically pro :) - hockey player, absolutely nothing beats this time of year! Well, the only thing that would make it better is if my Pens haven’t been crapping the bed the last few seasons…but it’s sometimes nice to watch the games without the nerves!

Love the Stanley Cup playoffs. I usually have a bear or two trying to get into my garbage shed during this time of year. Always a plus while watching a game. 60 year blackhawks fan but enjoy any good games.

I will say the Jets have some darn good and dedicated and LOUD fans. Too bad that didn't help 'em beat the Avs, :) Hopefully the Stars and Vegs go to a game 7 to give the Avs a few more day to recoup and heal.

Go Avs.....

From: Bow Bullet
01-May-24
Good thing Georgiev got his mojo back after game 1. I'd say the Avs got a pretty good deal when they got him from the Rangers for a 2022 5th round and a 2023 3rd round pick. After 9 straight losses to the Jets it was sweet to get 4 straight convincing wins when they needed them.

From: Grasshopper
02-May-24
I had my concerns going in about Georgie, still do to some extent but Hellybuck was the one who had wave after wave of pucks coming at him. No goalie could survive that onslaught.

The superior team won.

It would be nice to have home ice, go VGK. They looked really slow last night though.

Hard fought basket ball game tonight! Going to be a great series, evenly matched teams IMO

Die hard Jets fan but holy moly those Avs are on another level. That series of hockey against the Jets was probably the best hockey I've ever seen played. If they keep that up I don't know how any team can touch them. Top line practically scores at will and Bednar had the entire team bought into team defence. Worst thing we ever did was trounce them 7-0 prior to the playoffs. Woke the sleeping giant.

From: Quinn @work
08-May-24
How far the Avs go this year depends on Georgiev. We have all the other pieces needed to win.

Georgiev played really well last night. First 2 goals........ he was completely screened on the first and the second deflected off Makar's stick.

Well, the same Avs team that took care of the Jets and made an impressive come-from-behind win over Dallas in Game 1 went AWOL the last two games. :(

From: TRnCO
13-May-24
I'm not counting the Avs out until they are out. They got the talent, they just need a little luck on their side, which is what it takes sometimes in that game.

From: TRnCO
16-May-24
Last night the Av's showed that they still got some fight left in 'em and finally had a little luck come their way. Was a good game to watch.

I was worried the Avs might just fold after going down 3-1 in the series. Hope they win it all so I get another chance to drink from the Cup.

Don't know about the cup but your Nuggets may be in trouble tonight!! :))
