Colorado/Minnesota Game Thread
Since nobody is going to make a game thread, I will.

The pre-game ceremonies have started.

Yayo 10-16-2003 02:46 PM

Same lineup as the game against St Louis except Svatos (shoulder) is replaced by Bates Battaglia.

Yayo 10-16-2003 02:48 PM

Andrei Nikolishin at 5:34 of the first, 1-0 Avs. Assisted by McCormick and Foote.


Jori 10-16-2003 02:48 PM

Somebody from the Avs no talent, no nothing, bottom six scores the first goal.

Nikolishin gets his first goal as an Av.

Jori 10-16-2003 02:50 PM

Cody McCormick gets his first career NHL point as he assited on Niko's goal :handclap:

Foppa 10-16-2003 02:51 PM

Nikolishin is certainly back to his normal self after a poor year last year. He's the best third line center the Avs have had since Ricci imo. Wins face-offs, great defensively, and has enough talent in the offensive zone to be worth keeping an eye on.

Avs picking things up after a sloppy start to the game.

Is it just me, or does it look like a lot of people stayed home to watch the ALCS tonight? I know I am going to be doing some switching back and forth.

Penalty to Jim Cummins for interference.

Yayo 10-16-2003 03:03 PM

Penalty killed off, Minnesota 0 for 1 on the powerplay.

Foppa 10-16-2003 03:04 PM

Actually...I think those empty seats are people wearing some sort of free red Wild shirt upon closer inspection :joker:

Yayo 10-16-2003 03:05 PM

Avalanche are being killed in faceoffs...2 for 14, 14%. Hope that improves.

Foppa 10-16-2003 03:10 PM

Niko and Cody with a very impressive shift. Third line looks better than the first two right now.

Yayo 10-16-2003 03:35 PM

Second period has started.

Yayo 10-16-2003 03:36 PM

Daigle scores on a McCormick penalty. 1-1.

Boo :rant:

Jori 10-16-2003 03:38 PM

McCormick in the box for slashing, Minnesota ties it up as Daigle gets the goal.

38 seconds after the Minnesota goal, Forsberg puts the Avs up 2-1.

Aerolanche 10-16-2003 03:38 PM

Forsberg from Blake, Tanguay.

2-1 Avs.

Jovavic 10-16-2003 03:38 PM

Nice goal by Foppa to settle the puck down by slightly kicking it and tapping it in.

Yayo 10-16-2003 03:39 PM

Forsberg's first of the season from Tanguay and Blake and the Avs have the lead again. Just 38 seconds after the Daigle goal.

John-Micheal Liles with his first career NHL goal!! 3-1 Avalanche!!

Jori 10-16-2003 03:40 PM

Tanguay and Blake with the asssits on Forsberg's goal.

Alex Henry had the primary assist on the Daigle PP goal.

Jori 10-16-2003 03:41 PM

Liles gets his first career NHL goal...3-1 Colorado :handclap:

Aerolanche 10-16-2003 03:41 PM

Liles scored!

3-1 Avs.

Foppa 10-16-2003 03:41 PM

Congrats to J.M. Liles for his first NHL goal.

Great play by Bates.

Amazing, probably his best play in an Avs uniform...it just took like eight months for it to happen :rolly:

The third line contributing to two of the three goals tonight.

Mack 10-16-2003 03:44 PM

I forgot to make a thread last night :(.
3-1 Avs is awsome.

Foppa 10-16-2003 03:47 PM

If Battaglia can revert to his 2002 form...combined with the additions of McCormick, Nikolishin, Liles, and Svatos when he gets back...the improvement in the quality of depth is hard to describe.

For Minnesota...Daigle looks dangerous and fast everytime he gets in the offensive zone and Burns is tremendously impressive for a lanky 18 year-old.
