And just by luck, we were sitting just in front of the suites that were full of former Colorado Avalanche players was a fun bonus. It all started early as we were making our way down the hall for our seats. An out-of-place sound was heard by The Shocker, the sound of people speaking French! He turned around and struck up a brief conversation with his fellow French-Canadians. As the couple ducked into their suite, Gooseberryland said, hey, wasn’t that Pierre Turgeon? Sure enough! As the night went on we eventually spotted, Forsberg, Dan Hinote (sans wife, bummer), Scott Parker and Alexei Gusarov in the suite. Good fun! Even Sakic came by for a brief visit.

Oh yeah, and there was a hockey game too! Here is a great break out pass from that guy Quincey (that I was bashing earlier) to Duchene. Nice job on the photos by The Shocker
There were several of these amazing moments from Duchene. I don't know how the Avs could even think of sending this kid back. He didn't score but it shouldn't be long!

P.S. Don't forget that we are on Twitter now! There are a couple of other pics of the guys in the suites that I took with my phone and posted at twitpic. So start following us now at http://twitter.com/RealDenverSport
