Believing the hype: maybe the Avs are for real.

Darcy Tucker has a concussion (not concussion-like symptoms) and is out. Chris Dumo recalled.

Matt Hendricks is on the shelf.

Rookie Ryan O'Reilly is off to a fast start.

The Avs are getting bombarded almost as badly as the Oilers, but Anderson has stood on his head thus far. If the bombardment continues, this team can't sustain it's winning ways.

Speaking of sustain, read the comments at Mirtle's place. At least a few Avs fans think Craig Anderson is Hasek.

A child shall lead them: T.J. Galiardi leads the Avs penalty killers.

Chris Stewart catches fire after coming back to the show.

The Avs have only been a bit lucky, apparently.
