The Avs beat the Wild tonight, 4-1, but I only tuned in here and there. I just wasn’t into watching a game tonight, which is a bit odd, but not that odd. Some days, you remember how long the season is. 82 games is a long season for everyone, players and fans. But still, I did tune in for parts of it. Here’s what I saw:
The Avs played a 60 minute game. They didn’t just stop in 2 periods, like they have. Plenty of shots on goal, spread out over the game. A trend I hope continues.
Ian Laperriere scored goal 100 tonight. He was so damn happy. He may just buy Brett McLean a pendant that says “Best Friends Forever”
The pace of the game seemed kind of slow when I tuned it. Maybe that’s just a function of not paying attention to the whole thing.
