    As a youngster my buddies and I drove from Houghton, MI (Keeweenaw Peninsula) to Minneapolis to watch a Northstars -Wings playoff game in 1992. We bought tickets AT THE GATE when we got there, talk about weak fans. Sergei Federov got the game winner in OT and we heard it hit the cross bar and got up to leave while the Northstar fans remained in their seats praying. Walking past them all in our 'Wings swag with our arms raised - it was glorious.

    Don't forget there were also tickets to a sold out game involved

    If you ever watched a Red Wings/Av's game back in the mid 90's you would understand why I explained to the others seated around me.

    I didn't want to get thrown out onto the ice.

    JimP, son, I watched and attended Red Wings - Nordiques (Avalanche) games in the '90s. I saw McCarty pound turtle claude into his shell. :-)

    I don't think that there was or is a better rivalry than what the Wing/Av's had back then. You knew that it was going to be a blood bath with a number of fights every game. I learned not to watch the puck but the other players if you wanted to see the real action that was going on.

    What a series. Nice to see a home town guy get the winning goal (Maroon).

    IMO Maroon has one of the best hockey names out there right now.

    The Avs grew up a lot last year in the opening round with Nashville. I would have liked a better seeding this year but as you see, you just got to get into the playoffs, you don't have to be a top seed. My daughter married a Canadian and they live just north of Calgary. It was great to see the flames fold like origami. I would like to see the young guys on the Avs get one more game and get a chance to play the Blues. If it happens, I will be able to watch games and not have to stay up till midnight! GO AVS !
