45 shots, man. We were totally dominated in this game.
Hiller was brilliant.
I really don't agree with that. Was Anaheim out-played? Yes. But totally dominated? No way. Scoring chances were a lot closer than the shot count. Going into the 3rd, it was 8-10 in favor of the Avalanche. The Avs were shooting from everywhere. Hell, Bobby Ryan had three breakaways.
I thought Hiller was great, but the game was not as lopsided as the shot count suggests.
Avs dominated 1st. They were a little better in 2nd, and we were a little better in the 3rd. Avs were better but we pounced on our opportunities better and had better goaltending. Game wasn't as lopsided as shot count portrays.
Two guys I give **** to a lot were solid, Brookbank and Pelley. Good game by both.
Hiller was great as was top line again. 2nd and 3rd lines have disappeared past few games. This like last year. RPG and Hiller winning games for us. Getz was pretty beast tonight aside from his bad turnover.
I saw the first five minutes of the game and BRyan9's shortie, and then French's post game interview with Hiller. At first I thought French said Hiller stopped 23 of 25, but of course I misheard. Ah well, a wins a win. Yay 4 points.
