Exactly. Outside of Adrian Dater, you'll be hard pressed to find one analyst locally or nationally who gave the Avs a chance. I'll be honest, I picked Dallas to win this series. I also thought that if the Avs had any chance, they had to split in Dallas and most importantly win that first game in Dallas. They dominated the Stars and now the ball is in their court. Dallas is the #2 seed, the pressure is on them.

I'm eager to see what a Tanguay-Wolski-Svatos line can do next season.

Hog, the Flyers are playing well. The people on the ice that need to get their heads out of their asses are the refs. What a sorry ass excuse for a human being these refs are. Knuble gets not 1 but 2 back to back sticks to the face, starts bleeding like a stuck pig, and no call. To add insult to injury, when knuble gets repairs to his face and steps back on the ice, the refs nail knuble for high sticking a buffalo player. Knubles stick hit the Sabre in the shoulder.
****ing retards these refs are.

Esche has saved them repeatedly. It would be a fraud if Philly won given how badly they have been outplayed and outshot tonight.

Oh would you suck a c*ck already. The Sabers are a bunch of speed skaters with sticks. I think they tried to sign Apolo anton ohno or whatever the hell is name is.

Buck Fuffalo!

Dude, they doubled you up in shots. That's a rape. You dont deserve to win.
I dont see what the problem is.

Series sure isn't over that's for sure. Stars only had 16 shots on goal today!

---------------------------------------------------
Avs capitalize on Stars' mistakes to take first game
DALLAS (AP) -- Their lowest playoff seed in nearly 20 years. Ten losses in their last 16 regular-season games. A two-goal deficit on the road.

None of that bothered the Colorado Avalanche in Game 1 of the Western Conference playoff against favored Dallas.

Rob Blake and John-Michael Liles scored power-play goals only 2:04 apart in the second period and seventh-seeded Colorado beat the Stars 5-2 on Saturday.

"We've had four really competitive games with Dallas, and felt evenly matched," Avalanche coach Joel Quenneville said. "Some times starting on the road is not the worst-case scenario. You're a little more relaxed."

Colorado cut a 2-0 deficit in half before the end of the first period, and had three goals in the second. Rookie winger Wojtek Wolski tied the game at 2 before Blake and Liles scored.

"We felt pretty good today, and we'll feel good tomorrow," said Avs captain Joe Sakic, who had two assists to start his 12th playoff appearances. "We're pretty excited about winning, but Monday we have Game 2.

"That's a great hockey team over there," he said. "I thought they were flat. It was a bad day for them."

Jose Theodore stopped 16 shots in only his sixth game for Colorado.

For the Stars, it's already eerily similar to their last playoff series two years ago. Colorado won that first-round series in five games and twice scored five times against Dallas goalie Marty Turco.

There were plenty of problems Saturday. Three of the seven Dallas penalties came in the decisive second period.

"Work ethic, turnovers, penalties ... that sums it up," Stu Barnes said.

"The calls were made because we were out of position," said Stars captain Mike Modano, whose only two shots came in the third period. "We were chasing the puck all day long and that's not a recipe for success."

This is the Avalanche's 25th playoff series since moving to Denver in 1995 -- more than any other team. But they were 6-10 down the stretch for their lowest playoff seeding since 1987 while still in Quebec.

"I don't think it's an on-off switch," Quenneville said. "I thought we did a lot of good things with the puck. ... We had the puck a lot, particularly down in their end."

This is the fourth time in seven years the two teams have met in the playoffs. Dallas won a pair of incredible seven-game Western Conference finals in 1999 and 2000 to get to the Stanley Cup finals.

Dallas went up 2-0 Saturday when Jason Arnott slid by the net and made a backhand pass to Bill Guerin, who slammed the puck behind Theodore with 4:58 left in the first period.

That came only two minutes after a one-timer by Brenden Morrow on Dallas' third shot of the game.

But the Stars didn't hold on to that momentum very long.

"I felt really good even though we got two goals down," Theodore said. "I felt in control. We didn't panic. I knew if we could keep going the same way we were, we'd be able to get a couple of goals."

Less than two minutes after Guerin's goal, Turco was sliding to his right when Sakic pushed the puck back toward the middle. Milan Hejduk knocked it into the open net.

Another defensive mistake led to Colorado's tying goal 5 minutes into the second period. Turco was still on the side of the net after playing the puck when defenseman Jon Klemm gave it away. Jim Dowd passed the puck to Wolski and Turco couldn't get back in time.

After Blake's power-play goal, a puck through traffic that Turco didn't see until it was too late, there was only 15 more seconds of play before Colorado was on the power play again. Liles scored past a sprawling Turco, assisted by Sakic and Andrew Brunette.

Turco stopped 26 shots, but has allowed 23 goals in six playoff games against the Avalanche.

Theodore was 1-3-1 down the stretch for Colorado. The former league MVP didn't make his debut for the Avalanche until a month after coming from Montreal at the NHL trade deadline March 8 for David Aebischer, the goalie who beat Dallas in the series two years ago.

The Stars didn't make Theodore work too hard after the goals. Dallas only had four shots in the second period, and their nine in the third period matched their total before that.

"Hopefully this is a real good slap in the face for us," coach Dave Tippett said. "The level of urgency has to be turned up several octaves now."

Game notes
Dowd and Wolski assisted on Brett Clark's goal in the third period. ... Wolski is a rookie who had 128 points in 56 games in the Ontario Hockey League before being added to Colorado's playoff roster. ... Dallas had a 3-1 advantage in the season series, two of the wins coming in shootouts.

Esche had about as good a period as Ive seen for a goalie. This is ridiculous, Buffalo has won this game 12 times already.

SoCal...... Are you ****ing high bro? The refs are literally trying to GIVE the game to the Sabers. Buffalo 10 power plays (including a 5 on 3) to 5 power plays for the Flyers.

Did you see the 4 power plays the refs GAVE the Sabers in the first OT? Talk about BS calls.

As far as the hit goes, it was a stone cold cheap shot. Not only was it a cheap shot, it was a charge. That p*ssy who hit Umberger took 3 -4 long strides and hit a pleyr WITHOUT the puck. Cheapshot, charging and interference all in one. Why is it legal to lower your shoulder PAD into the face of a defensless player? I'll never understand the difference between an elbow and hard plastic shoulder pads.
Now, everyone likes to comment about Philly fans. Question for you...... how'd you feel about the 2 minute standing ovation as Umberger laid motionless on the ice. Or how about the USBC arena playing the hit 10 times on the jumbotron as Umberger was being helped off the ice and the crowd going nuts? That was cool huh?

I'm on the fence about how I want this series to play out now. I already called the series as Buffalo winning in 5. Now, I'm don't even know if I'd be that upset if we lose. I want retribution. I want to see someone, anyone, on the flyers to take a 2 hander to that gutless p*ssies face who hit Umberger. I want him lying flat on a stretcher. At this point, I want him dead. I'll gladly stand and cheer as it's happening too.

That tends to happen when the zebra's keep GIVING you power play after power play.

Wojtek Wolski, the pride of Poland, with 1 goal & 2 assists in his playoff debut.

Hopefully this carries over to game 2.

Agreed. What an exciting game to watch. Hopefully this just keeps carrying over to not only game 2, but the rest of them too. Oh and hopefully, Turco's playoff luck keeps going the way it is too.

I wonder how the Stars feel about the Avs calling up rooks for the playoffs.

Hog, the Flyers were grossly outplaying the Sobers before the refs handed them 4 power plays in the first OT.

Here's too the 2nd OT

**** em. I want that dude dead. Once again, the Flyers dominate the OT period and the Refs tried to give the Sobbers another PP.

I want Steve Moore retribution.
