What game were you watching. Almost every goal ceded by Varly was a odd man rush, weird deflection from a screen or a turnover by our team in the zone.

Our defense choked today.

Seems you will advance to the WCF because I just picked you to lose in 7 to Anaheim on the last page. You're welcome. Lol

you could just tell the other night that the Avs were done. Good season. Something to build on.

Minnesota sucks. Cooke needs to be gored by a black-plague laden wild boar.

This team needs four defenseman. I guess we can pray that the guys in the minors can come up and fill that role. The window is pretty short, keeping Landeskog, Duchene, and Mackinnon on the same team simply isn't going to happen.

it would be nice to spend money on a real defenseman this offseason, but that's probably only a possibility if we let Stastny walk. Down the stretch and into the playoffs he played his way into a much bigger contract than looked possible for him coming into the season.

Defense was horrible but varly choked too in game 7. Let in some shaky goals.

Erik Johnson has a chance to be the hero and still ends up the goat. Par for the course

Landy is signed through 2021 and Duchene through 2019. MacKinnon isnt going anywhere. I suspect OReilly will be locked up long term too. Its not like they have Suter/Parise contracts.

Other than that, you definitely right about the D. I see the current corp as having 3 2nd pairing guys (EJ, Barrie, Hedja) and 1 3rd pairing guy (Holden). Wilson, Guenin, Sarich (UFA), need to be gone. Cant decide if Benoit (UFA) should stay in the 3rd pair. There is nothing there in the top pair, and worse, there isnt much in the FA crop.

FYP.

Bring it on 24champ. Great comeback for the Kings but this isn't the Sharks you are facing. Only negative is who will goalie for the Ducks?

Props to the NHL for this schedule to start our series: Friday, Sunday, Monday.

So the Rags have to play 3 games in 4 nights after 7 game series that finished with back to back games with one day of rest between series.

Disappointed we won't see an Avs/Blackhawk series as I think that would have been a wide open, fun series. I do think with the Avs defensive problems and injuries they would not have advanced much further (likely losing to the Hawks) but I was looking forward to going to more playoff games in series 2. The atmosphere at the Pepsi Center was great for all 4 home games of Avs/Wild.

I'm so sad, had trouble sleeping. But I'm so proud of this team. If healthy we win this in 5 easily. Maybe 4. Anyone who doesn't think a healthy Duchene, Tanguay, Mitchell, Parenteau, Hjeda, Sarich and Barrie would have made a 1 goal difference in all 4 games we lost is crazy. Just a shame injuries derailed it. We could have made a run.

The stadium rocked. This is the first time ever I've watched every single Avs game this season. The energy in the Pepsi Center has been great all year. The Avs are back. Now they just need to take that next step.
