The old joke about NHL preseason games goes something along the lines of if-a-tree-falls-in-the-forest-does-it-make-a-sound kind of thing. Statistically, officially, they never really happened. But that doesn’t mean that a surprisingly well-attended Ball Arena crowd had a night they’ll never remember. Colorado Avalanche fans were treated to a 2-1 victory, with the Avalanche scoring twice in the final 10 minutes to overcome a 1-0 deficit. The building was loud after the win, even though it doesn’t count.
