Who would have thought during Snowpalooza that this game would be the homecoming for Jay McClement and Erik Johnson? I regularly look into a crystal ball and even I could not predict the anticipation surrounding tonight's make-up match-up against Colorado.
The Avs have been on a particularly shitty run this month falling to 14th in conference standings. They've not won in a long, long time. Actually, both teams are far removed from their winning counterparts last seen in October. Between injuries, trades, and performance issues, fan and players alike have become more than a little exasperated at the current product. Both teams responded recently by making drastic moves. And both teams are fighting to find their stride.
