Moment Of Truth

Tonight is the night. At 9:00 PM Eastern Time, The Colorado Avalanche play the Calgary Flames (in Calgary). If the Avs win, they keep their slim playoff chances alive. If they lose, the season is effectively over.

The good news is that the Avs continue to play very well, and Peter Budaj, despite a brief hiccup in his performance due to fatigue a couple games back, has been consistently strong in net. He'll need to be, since Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff has been at the very top of his game lately as well.

Should be an exciting game, regardless of the outcome. But since we're not totally impartial here at Dear Lord Stanley, there's just one more thing to say: Go Avs!
