Can't underestimate the Avs. They have several players that can burn us if we pull the same lax defence chicanery that we did against the Islanders.

I want to go to Cup game

I've only been to two first round games. Game 2 vs NYR (Madden's hat trick) and Game 2 vs Philly.

This team better not have the gall to overestimate anyone.

They needed SO to beat CBJ and struggled against the Isle for 2 games.

They'll need to break out of this low-scoring funk.

Anyway, I'm excited to see Landeskog. Hes enjoying a pretty good rookie campaign, as is Larsson. Should be a good one
You could just as easily say that if Sakic had been even close to 100% (he was playing with a bad shoulder that made him miss games earlier in the playoffs) and had Forsberg that it doesn't even get to 7.

Anyway, Devils should win this one pretty easily. And hopefully by a lot so changes are made at the coaching level of the Avs...

I wanted the Devils to win, but Bourque winning made it acceptable to lose and I wasn't even mad

Hopefully they will. And hopefully changes will be made, I have a lot of friends amongst Avs fans so I know what you`re going through. Best of luck to you as well.

**** Bourque. I remember being 10 years old in 01 and having to listen to the last 2 minutes of game 7 on the radio. I was in tears for sure. It was my first taste of failure as a Devils fan.

See, I never understood why Roy won that Conn Smythe. That was Sakic 110%

Well here's my bold prediction: Zach and Kovy suck it up. The geezer line looks good. Marty goes off. The PP blows, the PK is great and we score a shortie. Followed by a tight and ****** third period with tons of blown assignments in our own zone. Not sure if they win or lose lol, potentially followed by another board meltdown depending on the win or lose thing.

I think Parise is due for a multi-point game. I don't know if it'll happen tonight, but I think he'll break out of the funk in a big way.

I agree completely. He had to carry the team's offense while injured after Forsberg went down.

Roy had a very good playoff year though (I seem to recall the COL/LA series basically being a goaltending duel with multiple OT games), but to me, it seems he won the Smythe almost completely based on his SCF Game 6 performance, despite blowing a game or two earlier in the series.

I still think the fact that the Avalanche retired Bourque's number is the most ridiculous jersey retirement I've ever seen.

Bruins actually chose sending him to Colorado because it would give him the best chance to win. He also wasn't a rental. He didn't win in his first season there, he played a full season to win*

Player updates per TG;

Quote:
Left wing Eric Boulton (non-displaced fracture in right hand) is expected to be activated from injured reserve today and play tonight for the first time since Oct. 21 against San Jose.

It looks like defenseman Andy Greene (undisclosed injury) won’t play tonight. Mark Fraser will play in his place.

It seems like every time we play the Avalanche, the same topics get brought up in our GDT:

- **** Bourque
- **** Roy
- 2001 sucked

Our fanbase holds grudges for a long time.
