Analysis: Avalanche didn’t play well but still won, which portends for better things – maybe



I had to blink a few times and rub my eyes a bit to determine if what I was seeing on my laptop screen was in fact real. Thine eyes did not deceive me…indeed it was the Colorado Avalanche on my monitor.

Sure enough, I did just watch a live ice hockey game in late July. It was 90 degrees in Denver today. A balmy 82 in Edmonton. Here I sit in shorts and a t-shirt, parked next to my condo’s A/C unit, sweating, watching hockey. I’m happy.
