Probably, they were not prepared too well psychologically and physically for these playoffs series against Vegas team.

Not only that, I just don't know that they have enough firepower lines 2-4. The Kadri suspension really hurt them, and even though he's a Vezina finalist, I'm not entirely sold on Grub.

Just a fantastic hockey series to watch. Either one of these teams could compete for a championship, too bad they met in the quarterfinals. I don't know if I can say these moves or this or that player "lost" the series. The games I watched were won, not frittered or choked away. There is a great core in Colorado, that if can be kept together could be a Blackhawks/Pens/Bruins/Kings type cap era dynasty. To think everyone was thinking sweep after the Avs blew the Knights o

Overtime we go. What a fantastic game 

Holy **** that shot from Stone was...bad ass! That's about as clutch as it gets, picked his corner sold short side and zing.... I love seeing skill like that. So much of it on display in this series. Nathan MacKinnon is just wow. Alex Tuch's goal was some sick bastard hand eye coordination too. I wish these games were on earlier, I'm an old fart and can't stay up to watch 'em to the end.  Great, entertaining hockey being played in this series.

Isn't Kadri back for game 7 if there is one, that is? If the Avs lose the series I think it's about not playing hard enough, and having a bit worse goal tending and coaching. (I think it was a big mistake to split the MacKinnon line in a home game.) Definitely more is needed from their top line, though. They have been able to shut down MacKinnon, which I thought would be impossible for any team on a consistent basis. Let's hope for them to rise to the occasion and we'll be treated with some marvelous hockey.

When the Knights' players aren't pulling in the same direction and working like clockwork, they look like a VERY mediocre team.

When every line and defense pair is clicking as intended...when they get into their "hive mindset".... they can hang with, play against, and BEAT anyone!

Vegas transitions so fast. How the hell did the Wild take these guys to 7 games 

 

I gotta give credit to the Wild defensive system.
It stymied Vegas many times during their series.

Man to man, I think Vegas rolls the Wild easily.
But Minnesota played their two way game, played their system, and it worked to a degree.

Obviously, it still wasn't enough, but makes you think what could be, once the younger Wild players take their next steps and if Minnesota can secure another top level forward...preferably that center they've been needing.

Hope, Avs will be able to destroy their "hive mindset" in this game and the next one. But it seems, so far, Grubauer is not as good as Fleury in his consistency of solid play. From Avs I like Valeri Nichushkin forward - good size, good speed and smart play. Wish to have him in our Wild team.

Even if the Colorado will win this game (which I doubt), then VGK will take over it in game#7. They have an outstanding records in game#7. But who knows what will happened in these series. I agree - these series should be nice in finals.
