Yes, I watched it (I also watched the 4-3 Devs/Avs game earlier in the month). I'm sorry if the Avs not scoring at-will makes a game boring for you, but you have to understand that, ESPECIALLY against a team like Colorado, other teams are faced with the reality that they have two choices: play defensively or lose. Getting involved in a shootout in Denver is *suicide*.
However, I think there were plenty of chances on BOTH sides (the Avs controlled the first period, the Devils controlled the first half of the second, and the third was fairly even with each team having a few great chances). I don't think the chances were substantially different from the Nov 1 game. The goaltending was simply better. Both goalies raised their game.
