Normally, we run a picture of the game at the top of these recaps. No photo will do tonight's game justice. Instead, the above box score tells you all you need to know. Two players without minuses in the +/- column. Two players with more than 2 shots. 3 players with more than 2 hits.

There really isn't any point in discussing this game any further. It was a giant, massive DUD. With the possible exception of Ryan O'Byrne and Philippe Dupuis, this was a terrible, terrible game from top to bottom. The Avalanche were sloppy. The Avalanche were slow. The Avalanche were passionless.The Avalanche were awful.

Worst of all: the Avalanche were dull.

Let's just hope we never, ever, ever, ever see something like that again.
