Sarcasm right? Because that excuse is as bad as, "We're losing because of the jerseys".

Maybe I am being pessimistic, but has anyone think that we may miss the playoff?
This team still has not learn to win playoff style games.

IF we lose tonight, that will be three on the row. Meanwhile, Phoenix and LA continued to win.

On top of that, take a look at Vancouvers very soft schedule the next few days, as well as Calgary, not to mention Minny is right on our tail too. Losing these games and then we'll lose most of our divisional games come march, pretty much a recipe for missing the post season. These are the games we have to win.
I absolutely agree. That's why I think we are missing veterans that can show how to win these tight games. SOrry, but Paul S doesn't quite cut it as vets.

I tend to agree on some level, he needs to quit dishing off the puck at every scoring opportunity, look we get it, you're a setup guy Stas, but right now no one is scoring and its now your job to step up and shoot the puck and possibly score. He is no doubt overpaid right now, however I dont believe he should be the whipping boy, there could be several of those. But yes, he needs to step it up and earn his salary.

Pretty pathetic effort so far tonight. I"m looking at the boxscore and it says we have no shots on goal (in the 2nd) with 5:13 to go.

EDIT: Well at least they just got some chances on the PP so far.

Normally I can't do homework while having an Avs game playing, but this game is so boring that I'm getting plenty of work done.

Horrible of Stewart. First to the puck by a second and just didn't want it.

Is there another forum somewhere with an age restriction or something? So we don't have to read:

OMGZ, the AVS are going to LOSE 3 straight FOR THE 1ST TIME THIS YEAR....we suck, we won't make the playoffs, blah, blah, blah!!!

THERE CAN NEVER BE A LET DOWN...EVER! This team must ALWAYS play well and NEVER have a BAD STRETCH because good teams NEVER have bad stretches!!!


OR

OMGZ, Paul Stastny SUCKS, he's not earning his MONEY!!! The day he signed that big contract, that should have immediately turned him from a PLAYMAKER to a GOALSCORER!!! He only has 10 goals, he sucks!!!! He must have multi-point games, EVERY GAME or else he'll never be a #1 center!!!!


AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SHADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDAPPPPPP !!

Why should there be any whipping boy right now? My god, the team just got off a six game winning streak, where Stastny had a point in every single game, btw, where is all of the hate coming from? You people are pathetic. We're not going to win every single game. And when the guy is at near ppg and our best defensive presence all season long, it's pretty sad that he gets thrown under the bus after 2 bad games.

Make that 3 after this game.

I really, really hate being shutout. Come on Avs.

PS: It's kind sad how this stretch of games Avs given up. The good news is that Rangers is not that good at holding leads. The sad thing is Avs doesn't want to win this game either.

Sacco needs to change up the lines next period, we just can't score.

Getting shut out is the worst feeling in hockey. I hate this game.

Good thing they have many years to learn. I'll be happy if they make the playoffs. If they win a game or two, it's that much better. Playoffs will be a learning experience. Sorry, we're not going to do much there. Even when we started doing well I never let the "playoff success" thought cross my mind.

Sacco may not be changing lines up but 2 and 3 were out there for a good stretch of minutes for that period. I'm really liking RoR, Mercier, Durno line. Is it just me or does every shot Wolly makes with his 18 foot stick seem to get blocked, or just at the wrong time. I hope he can pick his game up, I would love to see him on fire again.

p.s. Was Wolly's last point that goal he got from Stewie on that empty net?

The main pusher of this is the same guy who boldly proclaimed Duchene had peaked after 10 games, would never get better, and is clearly a bust.
