You have to love these Avs. Keeping it interesting right up until the last extended weekend of the season. Last night, behind one of the countless superb games by Joe Sakic (whom shall now be referred to as THE CAPTAIN) the Avs staved off elimination by the Calgary Flames.

Our Avs still have a monumental uphill battle, with a tougher schedule and back 5 points with 3 games to play. Vancouver and Nashville are in their own races and won't be easy games (such as the Edmonton Game). While Calgary gets the comparable Sharks and the very uncomparable Oilers.

the AOL nhlfanhouse (a tremendous hockey blog by the way) has an Ode to THE Captain up singing the praises of the man.
