“Head on Collision”–New Found Glory. Pronouncing the Avalanche as “bruised and broken” would be an understatement. With the recent losses of Paul Stastny and John Michael Liles the Avalanche have added the icing onto the cake in terms of injuries this season. The term “head on collision” also works considering the league wise concussion issues this season that have claimed JML as their latest victim. This was supposed to be the game the Avalanche could win with their success against the Blues and enabling them to surpass the 08-09 season point total in one of the last two games. Now with this lineup a new franchise low in points seems likely. But this is why we play the games since nothing is ever a guarantee.
This is the 4th meeting between the clubs– Colorado holds a 3-0 series lead.
