Game 71 Preview: Colorado Avalanche at Edmonton Oilers

 

Game_71_medium

There's no sugar coating this. Both of these teams kind of stink. They are 29th and 30th, respectively (or 1st and 2nd best in tanking, if you prefer). With the exception of the Avs' powerplay, both teams are fairly bad at just about everything. The Avs have lost 10 straight, 19 of their last 20 and have gone 8 games without scoring more than 2 goals and 6 without stopping fewer than 4. The Oilers have lost 5 straight, having been outscored 19-4 in those 5 games. That, my friends, is an epic fail. Should be a lot of fun tonight!
