The 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs are well underway, with the Colorado Avalanche leading the series against the Minnesota Wild 2-1. There have been scuffles, skirmishes, scrums, brawls, and mix-ups, just to name a few of our photographers’ synonyms for a hockey fight.
The two teams face each other for game 4 on April 24, 2014, at the Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, Minnesota.
Check out more photos from the playoffs:
In case you missed it- photos from the 4/20 Rally at Civic Center Park in Denver, Colorado, on Friday and Saturday, April 19-20, 2014. Billed as the largest such occurrence of its kind, the two-day event is expected to attract tens of thousands of marijuana enthusiasts. The crowd put up a collective smoke cloud at 4:20 p.m. that quickly dissipated in the breeze.
Also on April 20, Snoop Dogg performed at Red Rocks Amphitheater as a part of his 420 Wellness Retreat in Morrison, Colorado.
Dave Thayer used a fine brush to add details to an egg design inspired by Mexican #artist Frida Kahlo. Thayer paints a handful of easter eggs each year and adds them to his tree of eggs he puts up in his living room every year. Thayer showed off his artwork to the Denver Post Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at his home in #Denver, #Colorado. Photo @karlgehring #eastereggs #fridakahlo
"The motion picture you are about to witness may startle you. It would not have been possible, otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly-increasing numbers."

When Rabbi Marc Soloway is troubled, he goes to the goats. It’s a short walk to the Jewish goat-milking co-op in his semirural neighborhood, and when he cradles a kid in his arms, his face radiates joy. “It really lifts my spirits after a hard day when there’s a lot of emotional trauma going on,” he said. “The energy of the animals is so calming to be around.”
Soloway was this year named one of America’s most inspiring rabbis. He also had a tough year last year when his house was damaged by the floods as well as his synagogue, Congregation Bonai Shalom , was so badly damaged that they had to close their doors for the time being and needs almost $500,000 in repairs. One reason he won the most inspiring rabbi is that he is very eco-conscious, and attends farmers markets and CSAs. (Photos By Helen H. Richardson/ The Denver Post)

Tamisha Macklin sits for a portrait in Aurora, Colorado, on March 21, 2014. The portraits on the wall are part of an extended family that Tamisha had great support from when she was growing up in and out of the foster care system. She battled with drugs that were prescribed to her for depression as well as problems with the law. She now works on many levels in the community with outreach trying to help kids in the system that are in the same situation she was when she was an adolescent. (Photo By Helen H.

Former foster care kid Diego Conde, 18, lost his mother in 2008 when he was only 12 years old. On his arm is a tattoo dedicated to his mother who died at age 40 from cancer. Conde said he got the tattoo because he wanted to have something on him to remind him of her everyday. As an only child with no relatives, he spent years navigating the foster care system and lived with five different foster families. (Photos By Helen H. Richardson/ The Denver Post)
