Hunwick has an uncanny ability to shoot into the guy in front of him.

1-1 after 20 minutes.

Started off shaky, got better as the period progressed.

San Jose had 16 shots in that period... anybody saying we "dominated" is kidding themselves. Back and forth period.

Is it any wonder that our powerplay has so much trouble gaining the zone? And moving the puck around in the offensive zone?

Look at our PK. It has to be the most passive PK in the Western Conference this year. We refuse to pressure the puck carrier at all, much happier to stay back and try and block passes and shots.

So in practice, when the powerplay does it's drills, it's drilling against a PK unit that is playing more passive than any other team in the league that must be letting them skate in without much pressure. They must be great on the powerplay in practice and have no issues gaining the zone. Then they get to a gain and they find the PK pressuring them in all 3 zones and they can't deal with it.

Need to fix the PK in practice so the PP has something to practice against that is more inline with how the games actually work. That's my theory anyway. The only other way they could be this bad would be if they also practiced this bad, in which case these players are inept, which I just don't believe.

They didn't play bad enough to make me not watch the 2nd. Dammit.

I agree with what Dater just posted on Twitter.

Avs desperately need Johnson and Wilson back, and it ain't happening anytime soon
For all the flak Wilson gets around here sometimes, I think that he's a solid player to have as a #3 or 4.

Hey TPS, would you happen to have any word on the extent of Wilson's injury?

ewww, I hate so much.

I thought Jones had a solid period. You know it's bad when your 4th line is out playing your top 3 lines.

Wtf was Thornton doing? Diving
Reminds me of a nhl video game I had long ago, I think it was NHL Championship 2000 and it had fox sports announcers. The most common penalty I got was abuse of the official, because if you were within 10 feet of an official and hit the check button, you'd end up putting him through the glass (yes, actually breaking the glass and putting him in the crowd).

Then the fox sports guy would inevitably say "...and the march to the penalty box continues".

McGinn had a beastly shift in the last minute or so, I'm glad we can stay at least competitive with all these injuries. I think this is more impressive than what Ottawa is doing because they have a GOOD COACH.

I thought Dater said Johnson was close to skating.

Dater is 100% correct there. This team is just lost defensively. Barrie and Hejda are the only semi-quality defensemen we have playing right now.

Even if he was, he would probably be about 2 weeks out still.
