One game after a thrilling victory against Dallas (props to Cody McLeod for continuing his surprise season and scoring the GWG), the Avs got routed by the Blues tonight, 4-1.
The highlight came in the first five minutes of the second period when the Blues scored three quick goals. No timeout was taken by Tony Granato. Nothing was done to change the momentum.
To make matters worse, the Avs lost Milan Hejduk to a jaw injury early in the first period. Hopefully he's back for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Oh yeah, the Jackets beat the best team in the Western Conference today.
Colorado can't catch a break.
You can count the bright spots on this team on one hand (Smyth, Hejduk, Stewart, McLeod) and still have a thumb left over.
Four points back of the eighth playoff spot. Twenty-nine games to play.
These "ups" and "downs" can't continue much longer. The Avs need to put together a run.
Anyone else not feeling optimistic?
