A 2-0 Lead Stands Up?


Seems like about every game the Avs play they either fall behind 0-2 or take a 2-0 lead. Normally, that score doesn't mean shit and the team trailing has about a 50-50 shot of coming back to either take the lead or win. Not tonight. Andy is fairly stellar in the pipes (especially in the 3rd) and the combo of Duchene and Stewbag provides all of the offense needed to keep it at 2-0 for the entire game. Considering Jonsey is out for the year (hard to overstate what a bummer that is considering how he was playing) and the Duke is still on the shelf, it's imperative that others step up and pick up the scoring slack. I would love to see the Rook play a big part in filling that role...

Great start to a crucial roadie that comes on the heels of a brutal back-to-back set with the Wild. The PK was great tonight, but the trip could end badly if the Avs continue to spend as much time in the box as they did tonight.....More shutouts please....

Word...I was pleasantly surprised seeing the 2-0 lead hold up. "Duchy" needs to come alive. He had a lot of close goals early in the season, time for those to start hitting the back of the net. War hockey nicknames. War Broncos starting another win streak. War the Nuggs losing at home to the Tpups, what?
