Avalanche Fall to Kings in 2008/09 Preseason Opener

The preseason is here and the regular season is now closer than ever! Obviously.

I'd have a bit more to say on this game than what is below, but I was busy working on a large, non-Avalanche related post which will go up around noon tomorrow. 

Tonight, the Avalanche took on the L.A. Kings at the Pepsi Center and were downed 4-3 in a shootout.

Peter Budaj started the game and let in one goal before being replaced by Jason Bacashihua at the start of the 3rd period.

DD pieced together the lines early and the RPM line was reunited while Sakic played alongside Tucker and Stewart.

Adam Foote, Brett Clark and John-Michael Liles were the veterans on D with Kevin Montgomery, Darcy Campbell and Michael Vernace getting some preseason action under their belts.

Those three vets will likely sit out next game with Ruslan Salei, Scott Hannan and Jordan Leopold dressing.

It appears that Adam Foote and Ian Laperierre will wear the A's this season for the Avs which is unsurprising.

The real surprise? That Sakic guy is still wearing the "C".

Video and Photos
The game recap at the official site already contains a post-game reaction from Darcy Tucker as well as a photo gallery from the game.

That's some quick updating and it ties in nicely with my upcoming post.
