Just a shocking upset in college hockey tonight. Holy Cross beat Minnesota 4-3 in OT. I can't believe it. Unfortunately, this game wasn't shown live in its entirety. Just imagine a #16 beating a #1 in the NCAA basketball tournament, it's that big of an upset. Wow...I'm just stunned.

Fleury needs to be sent down to WBS for the Calder Cup playoffs so Caron and come in and give up 4-6 a game. Its getting too close for comfort now.

STL has to somehow get at least a point against Colorado tomorrow and you guys need to bring Carolina down to earth.

Im going to be so ****ing pissed if we blow it after being dead last all year long.

It doesnt bother me too much. Its in the team's best interest. Its not even hard to do actually. I had no problem hoping the Broncos would lose in their finale in 99 against San Diego, 01 against Indianapolis and 02 against Arizona. I didnt have a problem with it, because I knew it was in the team's best interest to lose and we would gain absolutely nothing winning the game. It's easy.

The Ducks are scary good right now. Teemu Selanne is playing like it's 1993 and guys like Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Andy McDonald, and Joffrey Lupul have given them new life. They've got incredible speed at forward with the aforementioned players and Todd Marchant, Jeff Friesen, Jonathon Hedstrom and Rob Niedermayer.

They've got two good goalies with J.S. Giguere and Ilya Bryzgalov. Giguere and his Conn Smythe trophy has obviously played well in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Anaheim has the best defenseman in the league in Scott Niedermayer (with apologies to Niklas Lidstrom). Vitaly Vishnevski is arguably the most underrated defenseman in the NHL. Ever since Niedermayer came back from injury the Ducks have been on fire.

I would want no part of the Ducks in the playoffs. It looks like Nashville and Anaheim will meet up in the #4 vs #5 series.

The Avs best shot is to finish ahead of Calgary for the #3 seed in the Western Conference. Columbus helped us out last night. Beating St. Louis tonight is a must.

The Boston Bruins, who appear destined to miss the playoffs for the first time in five years, fired general manager Mike O'Connell on Saturday.

TSN of Canada broke the story on its Web site. Assistant general manager Jeff Gorton has been named interim GM of the club.

The Bruins will make a formal announcement at 6 p.m. ET.

With Friday's 4-2 loss to the Devils, the Bruins fell 10 points behind Atlanta for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot with 11 games to go. The Bruins have lost three straight games and 14 of their last 18.

The Bruins fancied themselves Stanley Cup contenders when O'Connell spent to the edge of the $39 million salary cap for this season.

O'Connell had been under the gun more than coach Mike Sullivan, given that he sold normally frugal owner Jeremy Jacobs on a possible Stanley Cup run with free agents such as Brian Leetch and Alexei Zhamnov.

-----------------------------

I would have thought that him trading Joe Thornton for a bag of magic beans would have been the reason, yet they make absolutely no mention of it.

That's gonna go down as one of the worst trades of all time.

Default Colorado Avalanche vs. St Louis Blues

GAME: Colorado Avalanche (38-25-7) at St. Louis Blues (20-37-11).

TIME: Saturday, 8 p.m. EST.

A new era for hockey in St. Louis is about to get under way.

When the Blues take the ice against the reeling Colorado Avalanche, it will be their first game since Dave Checketts and his Sports Capital Partners and Towerbrook Capital Partners announced Friday they were purchasing the team and Savvis Center from current owners Bill and Nancy Laurie.

Checketts, who at 28 was the youngest president of a professional franchise when he ran the Utah Jazz in 1984, later became head of the New York Knicks and Madison Square Garden, which owned the New York Rangers. Checketts' group still needs final approval from the NHL Board of Governors before the sale is complete, but he already is thinking big.

"Next season we will move ahead and begin working toward the ultimate goal of a Stanley Cup championship," Checketts said. "That's what I think is very possible and I want our fans clearly to know that."

The Blues have never won the Stanley Cup since joining the league as part of a six-team expansion at the start of the 1967-68 season, but had the longest active postseason appearance streak in U.S. professional sports at 25 straight seasons.

That run ended Thursday when they were eliminated from postseason contention after their fifth consecutive defeat, 7-2 to Calgary.

"It's one of those nights, the last couple have been," Blues forward Dallas Drake said. "We make a mistake and it ends up in our net. That's just the bottom line. There's no real reason or rhyme for it. They scored on their good opportunities and we haven't even come close."

St. Louis has been outscored 25-7 during its current skid.

Colorado, meanwhile, is looking to make its 11th straight postseason appearance, but is struggling on a five-game road trip.

The Avalanche lost for the third time in four games Wednesday after falling 5-4 in overtime to Anaheim. Colorado squandered a pair of three-goal leads early before Peter Budaj gave up four unanswered goals - capped by Jonathan Hedstrom's penalty shot 1:38 into overtime.

"You can't just sit on a lead and expect to win those games," Colorado forward Ian Laperriere said. "That's what we did, and they came at us pretty hard. We got at least one point, but that's not what we came here for."

The Avalanche are 10-3-3 against the Blues since March 8, 2001.

STANDINGS: Avalanche - 83 points, 2nd place, 3 PB, Northwest Division. Blues - 51 points, 5th place, 51 PB, Central Division.

TEAM LEADERS: Avalanche - Marek Svatos 32 goals; Alex Tanguay, 48 assists and 74 points; Laperriere, 103 PIM. Blues - Scott Young, 16 goals and 45 points; Young and Petr Cajanek, 29 assists; Barret Jackman, 156 PIM.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Avalanche - Power play: 19.3 percent (80 for 414), 5th in NHL. Penalty killing: 83.9 percent (327 for 378), 8th. Blues - Power play: 15.4 percent (67 for 435), 25th. Penalty killing: 81.9 percent (326 for 398), 18th.

GOALTENDERS: Avalanche - Budaj (10-8-5, 2 SO, 2.74 GAA); Jose Theodore (17-15-5, 0, 3.46). Blues - Patrick Lalime (4-15-6, 0, 3.71); Reinhard Divis (0-4-0, 0, 5.26).

SEASON SERIES: Avalanche, 2-0.

LAST MEETING: March 7; Avalanche, 2-1 (SO). At St. Louis, Milan Hejduk scored the only shootout goal to give Colorado coach Joel Quenneville his first win in his return to the Savvis Center after the Blues fired him in February 2004.

ROAD/HOME RECORDS: Avalanche - 17-17-2 on the road; Blues - 11-17-5 at home.

I cant watch the Av's-Blues game a la Saturday duty..... Ship's comps cant connect to online audio, so I'm stuck with a score sheet.

How the hell did Proapst get a misconduct?
How did we get an abuse of officials penalty?

Matt Carle scores his first professional goal tonight. It was with 17 seconds left in the game and the game was well in hand for the Sharks. San Jose won the game 5-1. Carle played about 10 minutes in his NHL debut.
