Minus 36. It wasn’t the temperature in Edmonton, Alberta, Saturday night. It’s the plus-minus number of Avalanche forward Matt Duchene right now. That’s cold. It was just another awful night for Duchene and the rest of the Avs’ highly-paid young forwards in Saturday’s snooze-fest of a hockey game at Rogers Place, where the Edmonton Oilers won 4-1 to climb…...

It wasn’t quite the equivalent of the time Geraldo Rivera went on live TV on a heavily promoted show to reveal what was inside Al Capone’s vault – a whole lot of dust, it turned out – but to Colorado Avalanche fans hoping for big revelations Wednesday, it might have been close. The woeful, last-place Avalanche – most of…...
