DENVER -- After the final horn sounded and the Colorado Avalanche had won their first home game of the season, the players stood at center ice and raised their sticks to the crowd. It has been a long time since fans at Pepsi Center had something to cheer about and the team wanted to savor the moment with them.

Matt Duchene Slumping

from Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post, The Avalanche can’t figure out what to do with center Matt Duchene, whose star has lost a little luster at the tender age of 20, when his impatience for success has collided with coach Joe Sacco’s frustration. It’s not pretty. “I try to skip to step 10 before I start step one. I miss some of the little things along the way,” Duchene...
