8/24 Game 2 "@" Avalanche (8:45PM CT) - Battle of the Backups!

Postby Troy McClure » Sun Aug 23, 2020 7:13 pm

The Avs may have the best line in hockey, but the rest of the team is getting beat up.

I sure hope the same team that played Saturday night, shows up again tonight. The Stars need to block shots and stay out of the box. Dobby needs to have a great game as well.

Keys to the game (in my expert opinion):

Don't sleepwalk through the first ten minutes.
Win faceoffs.
Stay out of the penalty box.
Cycle and get the Avs chasing in their own zone.

Never forget how satisfying this is and push for this to be Erik Johnson this time around:

Connauton against the Stars = 0.31 goals per game
Connauton against the rest of the NHL = 0.08 goals per game

Colorado's PP is above 50% in its last 13 power-plays.

So, you know what...

Coincidental minors is basically a PP for the Avs because of the 4v4 ice LOL.

The SAP coaching insight was “MacKinnon is good.” Thanks, guys.

Dickinson is still terrible, and Khudobin seems to take every shot off of the mask.

It feels like Fedun and Sekera have played all 15 minutes so far.
