3 fights. 20 penalties. Adam Foote injured. Brandon Yip scores his 4th NHL goal. And what is the story of the game? That putrid powerplay.

Peter Budaj was embarrassed twice by Ray Whitney and it didn't really matter. He could have given up 1,000 goals to Whitney for all it mattered. If you aren't going to score any goals, you might as well let the other team have some fin. The Avalanche, clearly, are down with No PP. We're now in our 3rd consecutive year stuck watching an anemic powerplay and it's getting a little tiresome.

Five power play chances and nada to show for it. As a result, the Avalanche have followed up a loss to last year's worst team in the league with a loss to this year's worst team in the league. I wonder if there's a trophy for that?
