I waited awhile to make this post because it was tough to realize that hockey season was over. After 82 long regular season game and one terrific playoff series, the Avs were swept by their once-rival, the Detroit Red Wings.
In Game 4, the Wings crushed the Avs 8-2. Johan Franzen broke Gordie Howe's Detroit record for most goals in a series (9) and registered his second hat trick against Colorado. Liles and Arnason were the goal scorers for Colorado.
Why such a bad Game 4?
Take a look at the played who were not in the lineup:
It was so bad, seven defensemen were dressed and Wyatt Smith was inserted into the lineup.

In my new few posts, we'll look at:

It's going to be a long wait, but soon, the Avs will be on another quest for Lord Stanley's Cup!
