The Chum Bucket - Pre Game 5
Fishing for answers one point at a time
4/21/10 - By Mike Lee -

  • Unless the Avalanche make it to June, it's safe to say that Peter Mueller's season is over.

  • Milan Hejduk did not accompany the team to San Jose for Game 5. Does Milan mean "soft" in Czech?

  • Ocular disruption? No wonder there's no traffic in front of Anderson. Nobody can understand a thing Remenda is saying!

  • It'll be interesting to see how long Pavelski, Setoguchi and Clowe can keep this up. They've been nothing short of fantastic through four games.

  • If the Flyers can lose Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne AND take a two-game lead in their series, the Sharks should be able to deal without Dany Heatley.

  • Interesting article in this week's Sports Illustrated about the Sharks and the absence of the Big Three. They've dubbed them the "Zip Line", as in zip on the score sheet.

  • Some of the best playoff hickey in years and the league gets to deal with a steroid scandal. Way to catch up to the rest of the sports world NHL.

  • Down on the farm, the Worcester Sharks disposed of Lowell on Wednesday night with a 5-1 pounding. Benn Ferriero had a pair of goals including a shortie. Division Finals start Sunday against Manchester.

  • Look for Kevin Porter to return to the lineup and the 2nd line on Thursday night. Marek Svatos filled that spot in Game 4.

  • Devin Setoguchi has taken 28 shots on net through the first four games.

  • The Denver Post reported that both Niclas Wallin and Jed Ortmeyer are nursing lower-body injuries.

  • Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco told reporters on Wednesday that he benched Ryan Wilson in Game 4 because he, "wasn't playing the game he needed to play." Thanks for that insight Joe.

  • When asked if he was tired because of all the overtime games in teh series, Colorado defenseman told reporters, "I was tired ten years ago!" Don't let him fool you. This series would have been over in 5 games if the Sharks had a guy like Foote to whip things up from the back line.

  • Only a handful of Sharks practiced on Wednesday, after head coach Todd McLellan made it an optional affair. Practices are closed to the public for the remainder of the playoffs in case you were itching to see the boys between games.

  • If you're looking for a pick me up, be sure to catch Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla's latest work of art. The Avalanche are in the midst of a possible first round upset, but somehow Carmelo Anthony gets a mention.

  • Those attending Game 5 will be greated with a bright ORANGE t-shirt at the front door. Isn't Denver the home of the Orange Crush?
