Found October 17, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
Ask anyone in Denver at the start of the NFL and NHL Seasons if they thought they would have two top teams in the big leagues come mid-October. One would be fairly predictable and the other not so much. Whoa. Wait. Denver has other pro teams besides the Broncos? Yes, the Avalanche. And others too! Wait. The Ava-who? I have only resided in this sun-shiny city for a little over two years. I grew up in Buffalo then lived in DC for just shy of a decade. I can tell you that living in these three football-proud and sometimes unhealthily obsessed municipalities, Denver really just has one pro-sports team. Buffalo has two and watching the Sabres and the Bills lose (but still cheering them on with all your heart!) is all you do between September and April. Washington, DC has some Nattitude. Caps fans get their hopes up around March and April only to have our dreams crushed by a groin pull or lack of motivation (Moto-OVI-ation???- please reference here: http://nextimpulsesports.com/2013/05/09...

Patrick Roy wants Colorado Avalanche to 'stay humble'

The Colorado Avalanche can tie a franchise record for consecutive wins (seven) to begin a season with a victory against the Detroit Red Wings tonight at Pepsi Center.  The Quebec Nordiques began the 1985-86 season with a 7-0-0 record. But Avalanche coach Patrick Roy doesn’t want his players to focus on any records. “I’m saying to the players every day, let’s stay humble...

Avs announcer enjoyed Cody McLeod hit on Kronwall

So you think you despise Hawk Harrelson? Well you might want to add Colorado Avalanche play-by-play man Mike Haynes to the list of opposing announcers you flat out detest. Yeah I know Colorado has been about as relevant in the hockey world as some beer league rec team in Taylor but last night when Avalanche winger Cody McLeod delivered a nasty and cheap hit to Niklas Kronwall, Haynes...

Niklas Kronwall gets crushed from behind on dirty hit from Cody McLeod

Colorado Avalanche forward Cody McLeod utterly destroyed Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall from behind on this brutally illegal hit.  Kronwall was clearly concussed and was taken off on a stretcher, but is apparently doing okay.  McLeod will be suspended for his hit and deservedly so.  One of the most disgusting parts of this video is the way the Altitude announcers...

Cody McLeod Injures Niklas Kronwall Via The Ol’ Hit From Behind

Earlier today we talked about how the Avalanche and Red Wings had a legitimate shot at reigniting their once-fierce rivalry. We touched on how Patrick Roy has the Avalanche playing a hard-nosed (to put it very, very lightly) style of play which has seen them win their first six games of the year. While the Avalanche style of play is an exciting brand, it was just a matter of time...

Red Wings vs Avalanche Recap: 10.17.13

4-2 win for the Wings tonight over the amazingly overrated Colorado Avalanche. If not for the Wings taking the second off and Gustavsson letting in two sympathy goals, the game would have been a blowout. Still, handing them their first loss was nice no matter how it happened. More after the jump: I know we all want Tatar out there, but Cleary has been good on the powerplay...
