You just can't blame this one on just one player (Duchene or Barrie), the team had a 2-0 in the 2nd and just sat back and allowed 2 very quick goals...It was just simply unacceptable play by a team that is trying to secure a playoff birth.

They have now put themselves in this position of having to win-out just so they're not mathematically eliminated, but it doesn't really matter. Any time that the Avs have needed help from other teams not going to a 3pt game, it doesn't happen, and that game becomes a 3-pointer. And then when they DO get some help, they s**t the bed. (Columbus home loss, Phoenix last game, etc.)

Perhaps we were all fools for thinking that they could play good down the stretch here and sneak in...but it's looking more and more unrealistic.
