DENVER (AP) -The youth of the Colorado Avalanche was supposed to be a hindrance against a savvy squad like the San Jose Sharks.

Instead, these new kids on the ice have brought speed, spirit and a whole lot of spunk to the playoffs.

The youthful Avalanche stole a win over San Jose in their first-round Western Conference showdown and nearly earned another, before the Sharks rallied in Game 2 on Friday night for a 6-5 win in overtime.

With the series shifting back to Denver for Games 3 and 4 beginning Sunday night, the Avalanche feel like they're in a good place.

That's youth for you - nothing rattles them.
