You can't stop Sven Andrighetto. You can only hope to contain him.

Calvin Pickard will get the nod in Monday's game against the Calgary Flames.

Pickard has dropped five of his last six contests and he'll enter tonight's game with a 13-26-2 record. He also has a 2.91 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage. He shouldn't be owned in standard fantasy leagues.

If you thought Colorado's season couldn't get any worse, think again.

Over the last five games the Avs' have been out scored 20-2 in the third period. The 4-1 loss to the Oilers Saturday night droped the team's record to 2-11 in March. More amazingly, it was the 10th time in March the Avs' had not scored more than two goals in a game. Yikes. Think Joe Sakic and company wouldn't want a do over?

Jeremy Smith allowed six goals on 29 shots in a loss to Edmonton on Thursday.

Rough night again for the Avalanche who twice had a two goal lead before the Oilers came storming back for a five goal third period. 11 goals allowed in the last two games for Smith. You should know better than to be starting Smith in any format right now.
