The storied rivalry between the Detroit Red Wings (27-10-5) and the Colorado Avalanche (21-15-6) peaked in the late 1990's when the two squads battled for Western Conference supremacy. While the bad blood the teams have for each other has cooled in recent seasons, there are still many who remember the past well and it is still considered a rivalry by some of those who are involved.

The Red Wings battled from behind Saturday night to win 2-1 in a shootout against the Vancouver Canucks, owners of the best record in the NHL. Goaltender Jimmy Howard (2.68 goals-against average) was a huge factor in the Detroit win as he stopped shot after shot down the stretch including all three shootout attempts.

On the other hand, the Avalanche are reeling a bit as they have dropped three of their last four games which includes a 4-3 overtime defeat Saturday versus the New York Islanders, who have the second-worst record in the NHL.
