Avs celebrate their OT victory over the Pens by jumping on a plane headed to D.C. I bet they love the NHL schedulers right about now.

Varlamov gets the nod tonight, Philllippp Grubauer gets the start for the Caps.

The stats community is in a tizzy over Patrick Wiercioch's scoring right now. I imagine they'll be pretty pissed if he gets scratched in favor of Gelinas down the line.

One thing I really wish Bednar would try is Matt Duchene at center with Joe Colborne at wing. Right now Duchene looks a little off...I think the two of them would work well together. But really he seems to have gotten the team working so well in terms of systems I'm really just being nitpicky.

Well...that was a stinker. Avs fall 3-0 and looked every bit like a very tired team on the 2nd of back-to-backs. And it didn't help that they went up against last season's Prez Trophy winners after barely beating last season's Stanley Cup champs.

No biggie though. Young team (not counting Iginla) that's still a little banged up, new coach, new system. NHL On the Fly pointed out that stretching all the way back to last postseason in the AHL and this year's preseason, Jared Bednar had a 17-game win streak snapped last night. Oh well, bound to happen sometime. :lol:

Now onto take on the two Florida teams. There was a time when this was an easy set of matchups. Not anymore!
