KUSA - No sporting event in the states is watched more than the Super Bowl, but there's just something special about a Game 7.

Wednesday night, Colorado Avalanche fans get a chance to see their team play in the do-or-die game. For most of the players, it's a first. For their head coach, it's just another day at the office.

Patrick Roy has played in 13 Game 7s. Roy did much better at home in his career in the ultimate game than on the road, for the most-part. Patrick though wasn't perfect at Pepsi.

The last game Roy ever played was a Game 7 loss to the Wild in the playoffs in 2007. Roy said on Wednesday though that revenge is not a factor tonight.

"What would revenge do for me anyway?" asked Roy this morning. "We had great runs, mentally we were not as hungry as today for example, this group is very hungry."

The Avalanche and Wild will face-off at 7:30 p.m. with the winner advancing to face the Chicago Blackhawks.
