I don't think his effort level has dropped, but he hasn't been able to make plays as well lately as he was earlier on. He must have a nagging injury.
He's looked alright today though I think.
There has to be a reason for that, and I honestly think its his willingness to hustle. He has started to get that inconsistent play like most players on this team, which is not a good sign considering he just signed a 6 year deal. His first two seasons I never had a problem but this season has just been a wreck besides the first month and a half.
LOL! Anybody else notice the huge fail coming off the bench? Didn't catch who it was, but Glencross went off for a change and his replacement was so eager to get on the ice, he tripped coming over the boards and fell flat on the ice.

I've been fairly critical of this team, embarrassed at times even, but they've really made me proud. This team is showing a lot of testicular fortitude and a lot of battle. Playoff chances even at this point aren't great but it's nice to see some fight out of this team. And for the first time in a long time I'll be scoreboard watching to see how the LA and St. Louis games end.
Avalanche win 4-3 over the Blues. Good news for us.
No, but I'm sure he did a good job of making himself look and sound like a pylon, as usual.
What did he say?
Kulomin got absoutely hammered with a punch in the face by Tim Gleason, punched so hard that he skated headfirst into the glass when he was trying to get off. Nikolai still had his gloves on, Gleason didn't. Although Nikolai was getting into it a bit with Gleason, Gleason probably shouldn't have punched him.
But according to Wilson it was all Kulomin's fault, he got what he deserved.
