He was in Colorado for two months from October 1995 to December 1995, when he was part of the Patrick Roy trade. He would have put up some big numbers with the '95-'96 Avalanche, but Roy was obviously a much more important piece of the puzzle.

Crazy stuff.
He got two games. I wonder if Witt called him a name?

TORONTO -- San Jose Sharks forward Scott Parker was suspended for two games Monday for attempting to climb a glass barrier to fight Nashville's Brendan Witt.

Parker elbowed Nashville's Jordin Tootoo late in the second period of his team's 3-2 win on Saturday. After leaving the ice, Parker tried climbing the glass barrier to get at Witt.

Neither Parker nor Witt, making his Nashville debut after a deadline trade from Washington, managed to land any big punches. Both were ejected after teammates and coaches quickly pulled them down.

Parker will miss games against Los Angeles on Monday and St. Louis on Thursday and will forfeit $5,971.42 in salary

Budaj gave up two goals he'd like to have back in the first period, particularly the Marchment goal. Calgary then took a 3-0 on a 5-on-3 Iginla goal. The game appeared to be over until Sakic scored in the third period to make it 3-1, followed by Hejduk scoring a nice goal to bring the Avs within one. Chuck Kobasew scored with 4 minutes left to make it 4-2 and it looked like the Avs were done again. Then we pulled Budaj and Tanguay scored on a nice feed from Blake. The Avs then got a 4-on-3 powerplay with about 70 seconds left, which they turned into a 5-on-3 by pulling Budaj again. Unfortunately Sakic lost a huge faceoff in the Calgary zone and Blake took a penalty that finally ended the game for good.

The Avs didn't play great in the first 40 minutes, but they once again showed heart in coming back to make it a game, unlike Calgary the day before.

If Sakic, Hejduk, Tanguay, and Blake keep playing like this then the Avs should make the playoffs quite comfortably. I think Calgary has the division in their hands now that they're one point ahead of us with three games in hand while the Canucks and Oilers seem to be fading.

The teams to watch out for right now are Anaheim and San Jose.

I got to see it in person! It really was a blast. The Flames fans weren't too hard on us. Their damn mascot gave ME the most grief.

It was really disheartening to be sitting there in the midst of all the Flames fans and have them go up 3-0. Every time they score a goal, they have these pyrotechnics set up in the rafters and along the bottom edge of their scoreboard. ( I have to admit, it was pretty cool. ) I got to feel the heat of those damn things 3 times before anything decent happened.

The May/McCarty fight was really close to us and from our vantage point, May definitely looked like the winner. I could hear the fans around us getting worried when the second goal was scored. When I stood up to cheer for our goals, I totally expected to be pelted with something, but I wasn't. There was a lot of talk about Sakic around us. A chant started up in the 2nd, "Go home, Sakic, go home." Kinda surprised me.

The officials seemed to be letting a lot of stuff go on both sides it seemed.

Things I noticed:
* Seeing them in person was amazing. They're so fast!
* Brett Clark seems to have a mouth piece solely to chew on throughout the game.
* Ian Laperriere seems to talk to himself the whole game.
* When those pucks hit the glass in front of you, it's freakin loud! I just about **** myself a time or two.
* They play awesome music in the arena.

That's it. I know I rambled, but it was so cool to finally see them in person. I would love beyond pretty much anything to come to Denver to see them with the home crowd.

There was actually a good picture of May pummeling McCarty in the San Diego Union Tribune today. I was shocked.

You're right on mt...you don't realize how fast those bastards are until you see it in person. That's why hockey is where it is amongst the major sports. It simply doesn't translate well to television.

Minor league hockey is great as well.

Glad you got to see the boys in person...sorry they couldn't pull it out.

Yeah, me too, but after the first two periods had gone by, all I was hoping at that point was that they'd score at least one goal! I was getting worried.

And holy **** is gas in Canada expensive. It's like 4 bucks a gallon!

The Canucks are about to lose their 5th straight game in humiliating fashion.

Nothing short of a third Avalanche Stanley Cup would be better than the Canucks missing the playoffs this season. Their upcoming schedule is not easy.

Yeah...the Predleys have their **** together this year, and the Cansucks are beat up and have that mental patient Crawford behind the bench.

F 'em. F'em one-thousand times.

(Edit: Cripes. I didn't realize that the Avs were only 4 points behind the Preds. They've got a real scrappy bunch this year. This may be the first time since 2001 this team will realize it's potential.)

Was this your first NHL game, Mt?

I'm making the trip up to Calgary for the Avs/Flames game on April 13th. One of my friends lives in downtown Calgary and hooked me up with some good tickets and a place for me to stay. I'm hoping the Avs and Flames are tied for first at that point, setting up a huge game.

It was my first. We had awesome tix, I thought. They were 2 rows from the glass in the corner. It was the end that the Avs attacked in twice, so all the goals were scored right in front of us.

It was awesome. Hopefully the fans were as decent to you as they were to us.
