    Avalanche 3 Flames 2 OT (NHL)

    Western Conference Quarterfinals Game 4.

    The Avs spotted Calgary 2 goals before charging back in the 3rd to tie the game, then won it OT.

    Colorado leads the series 3-1 and will try to close it out Friday night in Calgary.

    I'm honestly stunned by what the Avs are doing (though not as much what Columbus did). I'm afraid to be fully hopeful that they'll win their first playoff series in over a decade, but they're in great position now.

    I could only stay awake for the first period of this one. When I watched the highlights this morning, I wished I could've seen it. Like the Jackets, the Avalanche have kicked it into another gear at the right time. That first line is dominant but Grubauer has earned his starter's position and is not to be forgotten.

    It is a real treat to watch Nathan Mackinnon play. His puck control is off the charts. He looks like a hibachi chef with the way he chops his stick to control the puck, often at a high rate of speed.

    If the Avs pull off the upset, it'll be the first time in Stanley Cup Playoffs history that both number one seeds in each conference lost in the first round.
