Avalanche @ Red Wings Game Preview

The title says it all, doesn't it?

Well, that and Andrew Raycroft starting in goal.

Yep, to face the ol' winged wheel we're sending in the second stringer. That's some poor timing right there (though I do have a theory).

You know what else is poor timing? Landing the wrong way during volleyball, hearing a loud pop and heading to the ER in shorts in -40 weather.

Not only is it a recipe for a severely sprained ankle - and cold to boot - but combined with the distinct possibility of a rough loss tonight, it's a recipe for self-pity.

So what do you think, Avs? Can you keep me off the self-pity bandwagon?

You didn't bend to my anger against the Hawks so maybe the compassion approach will work.

If not, I'm all out of ideas.

Game time
The game starts at 7:00 ET, 5:00 MT.

There's no shame in losing to the BHawks, they're one of the top teams right now.

For tonight with Raycrap in, I predict a 7-2 loss.

So what did you pop? A disc? A knee? A top? A wheelie? A cherry? A weasel? A cap in someone?

Inquiring minds want to know...

There's no shame. Unless you had them and let them slip away.

The pop was just some tendons in the ankle finally giving up the ghost.

But supposedly they'll be back just fine according to the docs.

But I've lost a lot of faith in doctors these days ;)
