Didn't watch the 3rd, but we must have been all over them to outshoot them by 12 after being outshot 14-3 in the first.

That's the problem though, this team just doesn't seem to give a damn until its 2 late always.

Glad to see Duchene get another point, and PAP is scoring goals right now, if he can start finding Duchene with his passes those two could go on a tear. The one play I watched from the 3rd last night was a great feed by Pap to Duchene that lead to a really good one timer from Duchene and a great save from Dubynek, if they can build some chemistry they'll be a damn good duo.

Stastny was terrible last night. I still think some of your are being a little to harsh on him right now, though its understandable after our last 2 games. But if the guy had any bit of luck he would have 5-7 points right now and they'd all be primary assists.

McGinn might be the most unlucky Avs player on the ice right now. He could EASILY be at a Goal per game right now, he's just getting so unlucky. Cant wait to see his celly after his first goal this year. He's gotta be getting a little frusturated right now.

Erik Johnson is playing really good. He's been the only Dman consistently playing well for us all season. +3 through 5 games Averaging 22 Mins a game with 14 Blocked shots(Tied for 8th among Dmen). One this Im not all that impressed with regarding EJ is his Hits. For a guy of his size he should have more hit the Matt Hunwick. He needs to be more physical and punishing. As others have said he needs to get angry in game.

Shane Obrien is bad, really bad. We need to move him quickly.

Hunwick had a good game, he shouldn't be playing 20+ mins a night, but he was decent last night.

Thought Zanon was really bad last night as well. Not Obrien bad but he wasn't good.

Basically this team is being carried on its bad by EJ, Duchene, Varly, and Mitchell. Everyone else is either way to inconsistent(Jones), Unlucky(McGinn) or just not good enough in general. Landeskog and Oreilly need to come back asap.

Without Landy and Oreilly this team is easily a bottom 5 team in the league. With Landy and Oreilly were more like a Top 14-20 team.
