All Things Avs:
Veteran puck-stopper Jean-Sebastien Giguere will get another start Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild at the Pepsi Center, a key Northwest Division contest that brings both playoff-fighting teams into the All-Star break. More on that and other updates from today’s optional practice at team headquarters here.
Here is video of Jiggy talking to AP scribe Pat Graham. My ensuing interview quotes are in the linked online story. By the way, I finally got around to asking Jiggy why it’s Jiggy and not Giggy. He said it’s because if you spelled it with a “G” it might sound like “Gig-gy” — like a band playing a “gig.” And, of course, Giguere is pronounced “Ja-GARE,” hence the “J” for Jiggy (Glad we got that settled; I will never go with Giggy again.)

Three weeks later, and much has changed. Like the Ducks record of late - 8-0-1 in their last nine games, a vast reversal of how they were doing prior to the new year. Maybe those New...
Perhaps the biggest crime of the NHLPA nixing the planned realignment is the loss of games between the Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings.
On both sides, the teams are fast, have good goaltending- or at least have had it in the matchups this season- with big defenses around them and enough scoring to make it interesting.
Once again Jean-Sebastien Giguere was nearly perfect...
Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 25 stops to lift the Colorado Avalanche to a 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings.
Avalanche coach Joe Sacco said veteran goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere will make another start in Tuesday's game against the visiting Minnesota Wild and defenseman Ryan Wilson will return from a
