The Avs will not keep up this pace, as everyone seems to realize, including Avs fans. Unsustainable goaltending. But they won't crash and burn as spectacularly as the Wild did before, due to the underlying stats being more solid. Most likely they'll be 3rd or 4th in their division come playoff time.
It's not the goaltending. If you think this tending is unsustainable you are just looking at their stats. The Avs have a few 3-0 4-1 5-2 losses coming to make the stats look better but this is not unsustainable tending. Just the stats are high due to small sample size.
