Congratulations to Brandon Yip on his first NHL goal, Matt Hendricks on his first NHL assist...and, uh, whatever happened in the game after I went to bed.
ADDENDUM: Joe here.
What a complete and total bed-crapping. After 53 minutes of regulation play, the Avs had a 2-0 lead. In the last seven minutes of the game, they gave up four goals, including two in the final thirty seconds.
Craig Anderson probably shouldn't have played this game, having beat the Wild the night before, but it wasn't just his fault the team lost. He stopped 39 shots and got the first star.
The Avs were out-shot 43-17. Why bother even showing up at all? A forfeit would have been less embarrassing.
By the way, the new third jerseys should all be burned and never worn again.
