Colorado Avalanche v Los Angeles Kings
Honestly, I was a little worried about this one.  LA’s got a really good team and the Avs just had a really draining game against Phoenix the night before.  The 3-0 result looks a little more lopsided than the game actually was, but there was no doubt that LA was the better team in this one.
  • LA's 3rd goal was the first bad Andy goal Andy’s given up since an OT goal he gave up to Nashville in late Nov.  At least it came in a game where the Avs couldn’t score.
  • No offensive crispness from the Avs.  Shots missed the net, passes were in skates and no urgency.  To be fair, you and probably say the same thing about the Avs last 3 games.
  • Obviously a big turning point when the Avs couldn’t score on a 5 min boarding Scuderi took on Durno.
  • No justice when Scuderi’s shot was tipped in by former Av Brad Richardson minutes later.
  • I was pleasantly surprised that Ruslan Salei wasn’t so rusty.  He probably should have had 2 goals in this game.
Next game: Monday March 1st at home against Detroit, 7PM MST
