Talk about a good game to go to. The Avs came out with some jump and speed, put two goals in quickly, and dominated much of the game. The Oilers didn’t know what hit them.
I got my ticket outside the arena, and it was a pretty good seat, club level:
A quick reminder:
The Avs got their backsides in gear for this one, and it while it was against the not-so-hot Oilers, it was something to build on. The worry-warts may be concerned with the third period showing by the Avs, but I think they were expecting the same Oilers team who played the first two periods to show back up, and that wasn’t the case. To the Oilers credit, they turned the speed and commitment dials to 11, and forechecked hard. It took a while for the Avs to respond, but still, the Oilers were kept to only four shots on goal in the 3rd. Overall shots were lopsided, with the Avs putting 43 on net compared to the Oilers 13. The event summary shows the Avs only blocking nine shots, while the Oilers blocked eighteen.
I had a great time at the game (winning helps), and can’t wait until the next time I get to go. It could be a while before I’m back at Le Can (February?).
I’ll be at the game tonight, which should show the Avs kicking it in gear a little more. The last few games have been lackluster to say the least, so this should be a jumping off point.
And if you are in Denver, come down to SoBo 151 for the game Friday night.
I’m back in Denver for a few days, and the only way I’m interested in taking in Friday’s Avs away game is at SoBo 151, with some Czechvar beer and Czech garlic dip. Awesome stuff.
I plan on being there around an hour before game time (at least), and staying through the whole thing. SoBo usually has drawings for prizes, such as game tickets (which I have won before), and sometimes fun stuff like bobbleheads (which I have also won before). They put games up on all the TVs with the Center Ice package (you can usually find Habs fans there during games), but it’s all Avs when the games starts.
Come down to a true hockey bar and say hi. MArvel at the jerseys and signed memorabilia on the walls. Drink stuff you can’t pronounce. I’ll be the bald guy wearing the Tyler Weiman jersey. Shouldn’t be too hard to pick out.
SoBo 151 is located at 151 South Broadway (get it?) in Denver.
