Fun stat of the day.

Avs are .400 when leading after the first period and .571 when leading after the second period. I'm not going to check each game but it feels like when always get outshot badly when going into a second or third period with a lead.

It's partly an energy issue. Avs get outworked, which means our back- and forecheck become worse and we end up in our zone and our mighty defense get pinned down.

And if Avs are up 3-1 and the other team scores, you can see the shoulders slumping.

It's a troubling theme we've seen too much of the last three-four years. The players and coaches have to become much better at playing with leads.
