Game one of the Stanley Cup playoffs is tonight in Colorado when the Minnesota Wild take on the Colorado Avalanche.  

Facing the Wild in the Playoffs should bring back some bad memories for Avs coach Patrick Roy.  He finished his Hall of Fame goaltending career in heartbreaking fashion as the Colorado Avalanche lost to Minnesota on an overtime goal in Game 7 of the 2003 postseason.

Minnesota was eliminated by the Blackhawks in the first round last year.

Face off tonight is 8:30 central time.  Game two is Saturday night at 8:30 and game three will be in St. Paul Monday night at 6 o'clock.
