A Big Thank You From The Yeti Cave
With last night’s loss, we at the Yeti Cave would like to thank all of our followers and everyone who reblogged and liked our content. We’ve worked really hard to keep up with these fast paced guys, through the Olympics and the push to the playoffs to now, providing stories, profiles and graphics that we all have worked incredibly hard on.
We’re just a group of college kids who want to give the Avs the coverage and appreciation that they deserve, and they’ve definitely become a huge part of our lives for the past few months.
They might not be in the run for the Cup anymore, but they’re still winners to us, and they can only go up from here. This summer will be their time to regroup, recuperate and grow as a team, and hopefully the Yeti Cave will be right there with them.
We’ve grown to love these guys and the team in such a short amount of time and it’s been an awesome experience.
Again, thanks for following and feel free to contact us if you have any questions/comments/anything else.

Wild tame Avalanche and eliminate them from Playoffs after OT win
The Avalanche are eliminated as the Wild take it in overtime and win 5-4. The scoring was back and forth, but ultimately the Wild continued to hang on and scored first to win in OT.
Game Time: 7:30
TV: Altitude, CNBC
The Avalanche and the Wild aren’t the only two teams playing in Game 7s tonight. They will be following up the Rangers and Flyers. The winner of this game will play the idle Chicago Blackhawks in the second round. The Blackhawks defeated the St. Louis Blues in six games.
Home ice has been a huge factor in this series. The home team has won every game. This favors the Avalanche for the match up tonight.
According to history, this game is going to be close. 12 of the last 15 Stanley Cup Playoff games between the Wild and Avalanche have been decided by one goal.
In 2003, the Avalanche were defeated 3-2 in Overtime by the Wild. That was the final game in Patrick Roy’s playing career. When asked about that game Roy told reporters, “What I remember about that game is we played against a team that just competed, they were well coached by Jacques Lemaire, and he took what was a 3-1 lead for us, and they beat us here in Denver in Game 5, they beat us in Game 6 in overtime, and they beat us in Game 7. I just saw a group that was resilient on the other side all year. This is how they made the playoffs. It’s a bit of what we have been doing all year.”
Colorado fell behind 2-0 in Game 6, but they were doing things right the rest of the game. You could argue that they did outplay the Wild. When Paul Stastny scored a shorthanded goal, the momentum changed. With the addition of Nick Holden’s power play goal, the Avs had their first man advantage. The Avalanche added Matt Duchene to the lineup, who had been out since march 29 with an injured collateral ligament.
Nathan MacKinnon has 10 points this series . Stastny scored his first goal away from Denver in Game 6. He is a series leader with four goals and five assists.
Tyson Barrie (knee), Cory Sarich (back), John Mitchell (concussion) and Alex Tanguay (hip) are all sidelined tonight.
Parise’s Four Point Night Helps the Wild force a Game 7 in Colorado
There is nothing you can be sure of when it comes to playoff hockey…except that the home team always seems to find some ‘playoff magic’ in this first round series between the Minnesota Wild and the Colorado Avalanche. Once again the series in knotted up and a seven game series just became a one and done scenario, since the Wild won 5-2 last night.
Alex and Max discuss the Avs first 4 playoff games and talk about the upcoming game 5 in Colorado. Sorry for the delay on this. We all know that technology doesn’t cooperate. This may or may not be the last one. We haven’t figured that out yet. Stay tuned!
