A trip to the dentist doesn't typically generate this many smiles.

That's what happens when players, coaches, mascots and cheerleaders from Denver's six professional sports teams work with United Way Colorado to provide dental care to underserved children.

About 240 children received dental care worth an estimated $110,000 during the TeamSmile event at Pepsi Center on Saturday.

It marked the first time the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Denver Broncos, Colorado Rockies, Colorado Rapids and Colorado Mammoth teamed up for a community project.

Time for a Doug Moe refresher course.

Because the NBA schedule doesn’t always unfold with a nice blend of home and road games, the former Nuggets coach believed that a plus-minus system provided a more accurate reading of where his team stood in the standings.

Under the Moe System, teams receive plus-1 for a road win and minus-1 for a home loss. Through nine games, the Nuggets have a 4-5 record but sit at plus-1 (two road wins, one home loss) under the Moe System.
