Who's to blame for these pathetic 3rd periods?

We're now a very mediocre 5-5. 3 of the 5 losses have come late in the third period; 2-1 against St. Louis, 3-1 against Drury and Buffalo, and today's 4-3 joke.

There's no way the Avs should have lost this game after Hejduk tied it at 3. There was no need to mess around trying to do anything fancy in the last 6 minutes. Instead they give up the puck at their blue line and Friesen gets the game winner. You've got to get at least a point, especially after playing a decent game against the definding champs without your best player. They don't need fancy goals, just get points in the standings, they obviously have not been getting them. Vancouver will pull away yet again. They know how to get points, the Avs don't.

Granato is the scapegoat, IMO. He can't get this team to play smart, defensive hockey in critical times. Aebi looked bad today as well, but he is not the reason this team is 5-5.

I can't beleive, even with the glut of injuries, that this team is .500 after 10 games with the easy schedule they've had.
