Look, I'm all about racking up points. You do what you need to do to at least get the "loser's point" and then you take it from there.
When you're up 3-2 with ten minutes to go, you have to win that game. This goes double when your top line did nothing to get you there and you're relying on Ian Laperriere and Chris Stewart for your goals.
But the Avs blew it. Rather, Peter Budaj let in soft goals and Brett Clark forgot how to play defense. But really, they blew it. I'm not going to waste time talking about it. There's no point.
It doesn't matter.
No, really, it doesn't matter.
Detroit is playing Colorado on Monday. If the Avs lose, well, then this team isn't winning the Stanley Cup anyway. If they win, or at least register 20+ shots, then there is a new reason to hope that this team will get it together and do something special this season.
It's all about Monday.
