Avalanche runs away from Senators in Andre Benoit's return to Ottawa

"Benoit from Bordeleau" — that probably wasn't the offensive combination most thought would be the big story line to a potential Avalanche win Sunday. That was the case, though, in Colorado's 3-1 victory over Ottawa.

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- It's mid-June, so naturally I've been thinking about random players like Buffalo's Christian Ehrhoff and Ottawa's Andre Benoit for a length of time. The off-season is kind of unhealthy in this sense, usually ending in some stream of consciousness entry that's more of a ramble than anything else. The two above-names...
