There's not much to say about the game in Minnesota on Sunday night. It was a pathetic effort. Turnovers galore...again. It's tough to watch a goal get scored while three of your fowards are way up ice. Whenever Matt Foy begins to look like a superstar, you know your defense and goalie played terribly. Foy had a goal and an assist in the game.
Despite outshooting the Wild 28-26, the Avs got most of those shots in bunches and obviously didn't make them count - they loss 4-1.
All of the same problems in the last post exist. Just read that one...I'm not duplicating it.
Three Stars of the Game
1. Milan Hejduk (Provided some energy on each shift and scored the lone goal)
2. Wyatt Smith (I actually saw him skating hard and backchecking the entire game)
3. Equipment Manager (The jerseys looked spotless..mostly because the Avs weren't hitting anyone)
The Avs will play three games in six nights, including a Tuesday night tilt against Calgary. Colorado has looked pitiful on the road and now is not the time to lose three in a row. Look for Theodore to get the start.
Sorry for the short post...but there's not much else to say. (That isn't R-rated)
