The only sad thing I can think of, really, is that there are only 81 games left in the regular season. Fortunately for Wild fans, if last night's drubbing over the Avs was any indication, the Wild will be playing well into the playoffs. But lets not get too far ahead of ourselves. It was just 1 game, and you know the Av's will come out firing on Saturday in an attempt to prove they actually have a hockey team this year.
If you have not already, check out Joe's recap of last nights action at the X. The GDT was a hoping joint last night. I personally had a ton of fun. It was awesome to see all the old faces come out of lurker land, and the gifs. Oh, there were gifs! We'll have to do it again sometime. How does Saturday night work for you? We'll defend some new hardware we won last night!
Lots of action in the NHL last night, so lets get right into it. What do you say?

Too fancy? Is that what you're going with? I'd perhaps go with something a little simpler, like 'Avalanche not playing at all right now.'
