Ok last BJ headline of the year, since it's the last time the Avs play the Blue Jackets this season. If they meet in the playoffs, all bets are off.

The Avs continue to be the up-and-down team they have been all season. Currently they are on a winning streak, so all is well. Hopefully they can keep it up and the loss of Stastny, Smyth, and Sakic won't catch up to them soon. So far the Avs have been able to tread water despite their losses, but the loss of three dynamic players, such as those three, will take it's toll over time.

Ok i love that NHL.com has pretty good highlights, but holy crap show all the highlights. I didn't get to watch the game last night because it was on the NHL network, which I don't get. I listened to it on XM radio though. Everyone was talking about Theo's save on Rick Nash, and I wanted to see it. I went to NHL.com and they aren't showing it in their highlight package, yet they showed almost 15 routine saves by LeClaire and Theo. Can we see the best save of the night please? Luckily TSN.Ca had it
