Stop me if you've heard this one before. The Colorado Avalanche jumped to a 2-0 lead...and lost! Oh, you've heard that one? A couple of times now? I guess I'm getting senile.

There was some stuff to like about the game. Matt Hendricks had an awesome game, better even than the Altidudes gave him credit for, as he had a couple of great plays that they didn't notice. Matt Duchene scored his first Pepsi Center goal and his linemate for the first two periods, Wojtek Wolski, had 6 shots. And Kyle Quincey was a monster on defense, especially on the PK.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough. The Wild outshot the Avalanche 36-22 and the Avs blew yet another 2-goal lead. The Avalanche have been outshot 10-0 in the last 3 OT's they've played in (all 3 resulting in losses) and  they suffered their 4th shootout loss in 6 tries. Most importantly, David Jones left the game with what looked to be a pretty serious knee injury when Chuck Kobasew accidentally fell on Jones' leg. It did not look pretty. The Avalanche simply cannot afford to lose him for any significant length of time...so cross those fingers.
