So the Avalanche lost last night after falling asleep at the wheel. Found a few bits and pieces for you.
Sacco's thoughts on the game.
"I thought we really didn’t start on time," said Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco. "We had a few guys that weren’t ready when the puck was dropped and it ended up costing us a couple of goals. "We got ourselves back into the game and we played a pretty good first period after that." Coming into the contest off a loss to the Vancouver Canucks the night before, the Avalanche conceded two goals on the first three shots .
Liles, who turned 30 on Thursday, went to work in the off-season. He had surgeries to take care of a couple of nagging injuries, including to his shoulder, then he worked on his skating, lost a few pounds, ate better, trained more. When the season opened, he had assists in nine consecutive games — a first for an NHL defenceman.
