The Colorado Avalanche have come a long way this season, putting together an impressive season that many people failed to expect. At SBN's Avalanche blog, Mile High Hockey, they aren't quite ready for it to end.
When the season is over, I know we'll be able to look back and congratulate the Avalanche on doing far better than anyone expected in both the regular season and the postseason. But that time isn't now. Now is the time to hope that this team can find a way to dig deep and keep it alive. Despite the injuries and the rest, the Avalanche have shown they can beat the Sharks if they play as well as they're capable of. If not...well, I think we all know what will happen then.
