Five snowboarders died in a backcountry avalanche Saturday afternoon about 60 miles west of Denver, authorities said. A group of six snowboarders started out at Loveland Pass, which is just short of 12,000 feet in elevation, but got no more than a mile down the mountain when the slide swept them away, Clear Creek County Sheriff Don Krueger told the Los Angeles Times. One snowboarder dug himself out and called for help. The Sheriff's Office said the call came in around 2 p.m., about an hour after the avalanche.

The expectation of a playoff-clinching moment for the Ducks deteriorated Wednesday into something far less memorable. The Colorado Avalanche, trailing all other NHL teams in points, forced Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller to the bench by scoring four goals off him in the first two periods, en route to a 4-1 victory at Honda Center. "They wanted it more than us, won every battle, worked harder," Ducks defenseman Sheldon Souray said. And as Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau added: "When we stink, we stink.

One effective line and one goal were not nearly enough for the Kings on Saturday night, a refrain that is becoming all too familiar. Their 3-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche, played before a restless crowd at Staples Center, was another example of their offensive shortcomings and inability to get the balance and depth they need to make an impact in the Western Conference.
