Game Day: Avalanche

As Evander Kane posted on Twitter yesterday, "Lets see how much we can fill PHILLIPS arena tomorrow cause we love playing in front of a packed house[.]"

Rawhide's Rowdies will be whooping it up in the 200 section. You can still get in on the fun for $30 and get a free t-shirt by calling 404-878-3781. And be sure to bring your POMPOMs.

The Avalanche are two points out of a eighth place in the very competitive Western Conference despite being devastated by injuries this season. Among those missing significant time have been goalie Craig Anderson, Paul Stastny, Wojtek Wolski [EDIT- brain lapse here, I meant Peter Mueller for whome Wolski was traded last year], and Chris (better known as Anthony's brother) Stewart.

The Thrashers have won 8 of 10 including the 6 game winning streak and have been victorious in their last two. The Avalanche on the other hand have only won four of their last ten games including an overtime loss to Atlanta on November 30 courtesy of an Anthony Stewart overtime goal.

If Rawhide's royalty checks don't bounce, some of the crew from here at the Chronicle may make a quick grip-and-grin appearance at the gathering of the Rowdies tonight, so we hope to see you all there.

Hey RCP...the reason Wolski isn't playing for the Avs right now is that he got traded last season to Phoenix..but he's not injured..he played last night.

Ready to kick the Avs' ass though

You're right, DF, I was confusing him with Peter Mueller for who he was traded last year, and who is injured.

Daculafan said...

Yeah...Mueller is injured and he's a pretty key component for them.

With them on a 4 game losing streak their backs will be against the wall...we need to come out ready to bang heads
