We only have one game until Friday, so we can expect some teams to pass us.

Yah pretty disgusting that San Jose is currently out of the playoffs but could ahve 54 points with as many games as us

Kind of glad to hear that some teams will use some of those games in hand, should give us a better idea of where we stand when it's over.

If 3 days is a week, then yes, a week off.

It does piss me off though, when they give us a fairly lengthy break, and then coming off the break immediately back to back games. Why on earth could it not be one less day off, but one day in between the two games after.

What an important victory tonight. I haven't watched the match (New Year's party ), but I expected a loss.

We played against a team making a pathetic season, I know, but our line-up looks weak. Many injuries and players who just came back from injuries.

Amazing score

Happy 2012 to all of you!!

I almost missed it. Thought it would be at least 9PM EST and was just randomly checking scores at about 8:15 and saw it had already started.

It's a bit odd that Landeskog is +8 and O'Reilly is -4. They have been on the same line the whole season.

I guess O'Reilly might have been out there for a few empty net goals against and Landeskog has been on for a shorthanded goal, but other than that I can't figure out why there is a difference.

Ryan O'Reilly is a beast, and is earning himself a fatter contract extension as each month passes.

Sets a career high in points (28) in game 40, while leading the Avalanche in points and assists, and the entire league in turnovers. And he's 20.

Star in the making.

Yeah, if he hits 60 points, and is leading or near the top in TkA, keeps his PIMs this low, and continues to improve every night. I'd give him a contract to the year before his UFA eligibility at a pretty high number 4-5/yr

Back from the game and a NYE party. Sad turnout and I hear it's been like this a lot lately for ducks home games. I might stay and see if I can get tix to the kings game. The PP goal was a thing of beauty. It was if the special teams unit finally got some good coaching and a plan of attack.

Awesome win tonight. We just need to scrape out as many wins as we can with Dutchy out.

I just finished watching the game and it's nice to win another game and set more records. Why the hell didn't the player that hit Hedjuk after the fight started get called for interference>

Because Hejduk had the puck on his stick

RoR is our leading point getter this season. He is on pace for 57 points.

Yikes.

Nashville consistently makes the playoffs with that kind of offensive output, but they have Rinne, Suter, and Weber.

Got to think that if Stastny doesn't get it in gear this team is going to flounder down the stretch. They definitely need to get some better wingers going into next season.

I missed this game unfortunately, good to know the Avs win and O'Reilly is beast mode as usual. The Avs have been playing some good hockey as of late, and what a great way to end a questionable month. Well, the start of it anyways. I wish we could have at least beaten Edmonton or Calgary but what can you do. 7 of our last 8? That's real good, who knows, 8th place is on my mind again.

****** to hear Stas was invisible tonight, because lately he's been playing really good hockey. Maybe not getting tons of points, but he was making some good plays and playing solid offensively. He's had some bad luck so let's hope for a strong second half. I think he's great.

Hejduk? 2 goals?! Beautiful. We need him to catch a spark, and hopefully Jones follows suit and the bottom liners continue their solid play. Hey, I can get used to winning streaks

I don't ever question the schedule-makers and the schedule in general. I would probably die if I had their job. They have thousands of things to take in to account.

Pretty sure a large majority is done by a computer program. I could be wrong though. I mean, I imagine they can put into their program all the building schedules with the NBA and concerts and let it figure stuff out.

They probably/definitely make tweaks all over the place to make sure everything works as well as might be possible. It just seems to happen so often though that teams will have 5 days off and then go back to back on different sides of the continent, or 3 in4 nights kind of stuff. If they just went every second night it would just seem so much better.

Just look at Staples Center schedule and tell me from there, how exactly you are going to adjust it so that all the variables will agree with your adjustment. Also, don't try to put Avs in front of everything else so if the thing you want is that Avs are not going to play back-to-back, make also sure that Clippers or Kings or Lakers or their opponents don't have to play back-to-back.

And that's just the beginning.

(edit. Same thing for Chicago and St. Louis naturally, since that's where the Avs games actually are)

Problem is every second night doesn't work, not when you've got concerts, NBA and all the other things that a building has scheduled. When you want your League to go every second night then you've gotta tell the NBA teams, Lil Wayne and Disney on Ice they all can't come a certain night. Doesn't work that way.

That's why I don't question the schedule. I know that the schedule-makers aren't stupid, and if given the opportunity they would certainly schedule every team for no back to backs and try to get a game in every second night. But in an economy that doesn't revolve around the NHL, it's not even close to possible.
