It was a forgettable game in Denver for the Stars, as they were completely outclassed and outplayed by the younger and faster Colorado Avalanche. The special teams were the story of the game, as the Avs scored multiple power play goals while also adding a short-handed tally to pad their lead.
Here on Defending Big D, however, the night was a resounding success. I'd like to thank the guys from Mile High Hockey, Fear The Fin, Die By The Blade, Silver Seven and others around SB Nation as they helped us raise important funds for the NHL/UNICEF Initiative.
The fundraiser continues, however. Any comments made until 11:59 p.m. CST will count towards the final tally.
I'll have the final numbers and donation amount first thing in the morning. In the meantime, feel free to vent your frustrations here, in the name of good.
