I hate that. If a guy clearly doesn't want to dance you don't just skate all the way down to his crease and start throwing bombs. I understand how heated it gets, but geez...he acted like his old man in a Colorado Springs barroom.

Word is the other goalie was running his mouth talking shyt that's why roy jr was pissed i don't care what anybody says any team loves to have a goaltender with that kinda fire defending your net. He will most likely get the hammer lowered on him via suspension it just would have been a bit better if the other tender would have backed up his talk with something other than the ragdoll routine.(kinda chicken shyt if you ask me)

The Colorado Avalanche and Vancouver Canucks have little room for error in the final few days of the regular season.

The teams tied for the Western Conference's final two playoff spots look to improve their positioning as the Northwest Division rivals meet Wednesday night in Denver.

Vancouver (38-28-10) allowed two third-period goals and fell 3-2 at division-leading Calgary on Tuesday. The loss left the Canucks tied for seventh place in the West with Colorado (40-31-6), which a night earlier beat the Flames 2-0 at home to snap a four-game losing streak.

"It's tight hockey right now; it's playoff hockey, four-point games that are huge for us," said Colorado's Jordan Leopold, who scored his first goal in 2 1/2 months Monday.

The meeting Wednesday will be the first of two between the teams in a span of seven days. They'll conclude the season series Tuesday in Vancouver.

Colorado, looking to return to playoffs after missing out last season, has dominated the series with Vancouver this season, holding a 4-1-1 advantage and looking for a fifth consecutive win over the Canucks.

The Avalanche have won two of their three home contests against Vancouver this season, including a 2-1 win on March 4 in the most recent meeting.

Colorado has won six of its last seven home games and is 24-12-2 at the Pepsi Center, where it will play three of its final five. The Avalanche are 10-3-0 there versus divisional opponents.

"We know that the teams behind us are pushing, and it's important we keep our position," said Colorado's Ryan Smyth, who recorded his 600th career point when he assisted on Milan Hejduk's goal Monday. "The only way we do that is taking care of our own destiny and taking matter into our own hands."

Smyth has an assist in each of his last three contests. Hejduk, meanwhile, has two goals and an assist in his last two games while posting the same against Vancouver this season.

Jose Theodore made 23 saves for his third shutout of the season Monday after allowing 11 goals in losing three of his previous four decisions.

"These are playoff-type games. You know there's not going to be too many goals on either side," said Theodore, who is 3-0-1 with a 1.71 goals-against average versus Vancouver this season. "When they get chances you want to make sure you give your team a chance to win."

Markus Naslund and Daniel Sedin each scored first-period goals Tuesday for Vancouver, which blew a 2-0 lead and dropped its second straight contest by one goal after falling 2-1 to Minnesota on Friday.

"We have our next game (Wednesday) so we have to forget this one and regroup," Vancouver's Sami Salo said. "It's another huge game."

Sedin, who has two goals and four assists against Colorado this season, has two and three assists in his last four games overall.

Roberto Luongo made 37 saves Tuesday, but allowed one fewer goal than he did in his previous three games. After allowing four goals in winning his first two starts against Colorado this season, Luongo has given up 12 in losing four in a row to the Avalanche.

The Statz-Hejduk-Forsberg line is becoming a force. They are absolutely dominating tonight, especially Milan.

Cripes. I had to leave during the first intermission...I got home at the beginning of the third, and ZANG!

Forsberg is a point per game player right now.

Jose continues to be strong in his nets, and that is key heading into the *knock on wood* playoffs.

David Jones is eventually going to find the back of the net on a fairly regular basis. He's a less talented Deadmarsh.

With Dallas sliding...the sixth seed is within their reach.

If at this point we dont make the playoffs, then we definitely don't deserve to be there. I am liking that we're out of 8th for the time being, I don't want to see the Avs go head to head with the blood wings. We haven't won one against them yet this year.

The first two goals Theo had no chance on. I thought the last two were pretty weak.

Stomp 'em in the third boys.

Tough break the way the puck kicked off of Hannan's skate right to Gaborik. For a second it looked like Tay-o-door was going to bail them out.

In any case...they got a point out of the thing...when early on it looked like they were going to get run. Every point is huge right now.

I understand the sentiment, but look at the minutes Peter the Great has logged since coming back. He hadn't played in the NHL for almost a year, and his first games back he was playing right around twenty minutes. I have no problem holding him out against teams like Minnesota until the playoffs. There are not many players in the world who can take a year off and be a point per game player. Forsberg is one of them.

Cripes...when the signing was announced I had visions of 15 minutes per plus power play time for the guy. He's been awesome.

Also...I really thought that he and Statsny were too much alike to be effective...whoops! Their savvy meshes perfectly, and Hejduk has been reaping the rewards.

Another 2 point game for Peter the Great.

The Avs clinch a playoff berth. They can take ANY team in the west in a best of seven series.

I'm glad he's back and all, just thought he shouldn't be on the list of players on that link

hopefully he can play in all the playoff games. The Avs are a different team without him. More importantly, if Ryan Smyth can regain his scoring touch, maybe the Avs can afford for Forsberg to take a night off or two.

The Avs are headed in to overtime in Minny. That puts them at the 6th seed. Let's hope no one gets hurt in overtime.

(Edit: The Avs win in a shoot-out. It's nice to end the season coming off of some wins. It's going to be a tough series against the trap crazy Wild, but I think they can get it done.)

(Double Edit: Forsberg put up another 3 points...two on the power play. Over the past couple of weeks the Avs' power play has shown some signs of potency. They'll really need their special teams units to gel against the Wild.)
