It seemed like an easy thing. After an embarrassing 3-1 loss to Minny on Monday I figured the Avs would come out of the gate flying - good rushes, hits, etc. At least there was a fight.

In a CRUCIAL game, the Avs simply did not come to play...AGAIN! They looked a lot better in the third but even then, come on. With a whopping 3 shots in the first, 7 shots in the second and 6 in the third, the Avs did not deserve to be on the same ice as the Flames.
Calgary played a really smart, defensive shell-type game (at least in the third) - clogging up the neutral zone with all 5 players. Granted, it worked well as the Avs simply could not get a rush going at all.
Colorado now trails 7th place Vancouver by 2 points and the Nucks even have a game in hand! Wow, if these guys hope to make the playoffs, the effort really has to be there - the heart and soul that got us through January/February along with the lift of having most of our key players back needs to propel this team. If not, better pack your golf bag, though I think I would much rather play football instead.
That's all folks...bongo_guy signing off...and still believing...Go Avs Go!
