Game 2: Colorado Avalanche look to draw even in the series

New, comments

After succumbing to a loss Thursday, Colorado needs to secure a victory to tie the series

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Colorado Avalanche at Nashville Predators Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

After a fantastic effort for the first 46 minutes, the Colorado Avalanche fell off and lost a very winnable game. It would be nice to see a full 60 minutes played tonight (which has been a problem all season). Let’s see if the Colorado Avalanche can pull out a well-rounded level of play, and maybe even a win tonight.

I’ll admit, I wish that neither one of Nemeth or Barberio were playing tonight, but maybe they’ll turn it around. It’s not like the Avalanche have too many options on the blueline (Lindholm, Siemens, Alt don’t seem like they’d be much better).

I know everything’s just gravy at this point, but it would be really nice to see the Avalanche put the Predators on their heels a bit with a win at Bridgestone Arena.

Make sure you join the conversation here in-game.

Nothing else to say at this point, except GO AVS!
