Epic Battle Update: Let's Try and Have a Winner this Time, OK?

(C) Colorado Avalanche

I don't know what the NHL schedulers were thinking, but it seems that the Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche play to determine the fate of the universe every Sunday. Oh, wait. They actually do.

For the third Sunday out of the last four, the top two teams in the Northwest Division will face off, this time in Denver. This is starting to become an event as regular as, well, playing tackle football on Sundays in the fall. If you remember last time these two teams met, neither side were able to successfully determine the fate of the universe. To try and help out a team of actors was sent in, but as it turns out, they are only actors and have a hard time doing heroic things in real life.

Thanks for nothing Hollywood. Thanks a lot. Now it's up to Paul Stastny and the Minnesota Wild to try and determine the fate of the universe yet again. Will we wake up tomorrow morning in a world filled with giant tortoises who torture us mercilessly in the hopes of finding out how we build houses that look like toilets? Or will it be more like a Battlestar Galactica rerun? The anticipation is killing me. I cannot wait.

If this isn't enough, don't fret, the two teams will play again next Sunday. Awesome.

  1. Am I the only one who finds it troubling that the fate of the universe will only be seen in MN and CO? Thanks Mr. Bettman- I'll be eating Carl's Jr. in my underwear while the universe explodes.

    Oh and here's a question- if Chuck Norris' tears can cure cancer, can Ryan Smyth's save the universe?
