- For the 2nd time since Christmas, awful penalty killing costs the Avalanche a home win.
- Thank goodness we were able to get a point out of this one - it was a big point in the ultra close Western Conference. Honestly, we probably didn't deserve it.
- You gotta think that Andy's got a really good chance to beat rookie and first time starter Kevin Poulin in a shootout. So I don't understand why Shattenkirk and Hunwick are thrown out during OT, especially when Tavares is out there.
- A really pretty goal from Tavares in OT - but it was completely misplayed by Shattenkirk. Tavares has to get knocked down - neither #8 or #48 are physical enough or willing to make that play.
- There is absolutely no question that Hunwick is massively struggling right now. If you are going to continue to play him, I don't understand why he keeps getting put into the same situations - parred with Shattenkirk and often when Duchene's line is on the ice.
- Koci watch: an astounding 5min of ice time - including some 3rd period ice time. I have to admit, he wasn't too bad - he even scored a Koci-styled* goal.
- *Koci-styled goal = when a player is standing in front of the net and a puck that was going to go in anyways hits said player in the pants and bounces in.
- As funny as it sounds, it might be good for the Avs to go on a lengthy roadtrip right now - I think a change of scenery could serve this team well - but its not gonna happen. After the Red Wings game, the Avs go to Chicago and Minnesota and then are back at home for yet another 5 game homestand.
