Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – C+ Simply put, the problem with Bellemare this series was that he was asked to do too much. As a fourth line center, he is fine. The struggle of Compher’s line this series forced him into the role of third line center, as he played more than JTC at even strength. He scored the big goal to…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B Really solid game from Bellemare, and that line really went to work down low in the third period, killing the puck on the cycle and not giving the Stars any chance to break out. As bad as the Avs were in face-offs in the first, guys like Bellemare turned it around to even it up in…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – A Heck of a game from Bellemare, who got the party started early in the first period and the Avs never looked back. Great play by him to one-time that across his body, and not let Bishop get set coming across. He was buzzing all night long. Andre Burakovsky – A That’s one way to stick around…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – D Bellemare’s line was fine at even strength in terms of numbers. His penalty kill work, however, was less than ideal, as he was out there for all three of Dallas’ power play goals. He even managed to toss in a penalty of his own. Andre Burakovsky – D Burky picked up a couple of assists on…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B- The Avs PK had some high-effort shifts, led in part by Bellemare with some key face-off wins and some diving clears to get the puck out and get a line change. Andre Burakovsky – A I loved everything about Burakovsky’s game. He was moving his feet, carrying the puck with confidence, and most importantly, letting the…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – C- The fourth line was okay. They looked better with Nichushkin on it than it did with Namestnikov. Bellemare, unfortunately, lost the face-off right before the Pavelski power-play goal that changed the game. Andre Burakovsky – F Burakovsky is a shooter who had the most inopportune times refuses to shoot the puck. His pass to Compher in…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – D The fourth line was missing a big part of it today, and it showed. They failed to grind out anything offensively and Bellemare looked a little slow. As you’ll see with these grades, he certainly wasn’t alone… Andre Burakovsky – F Sloppy all over the place. The second line was a negative pretty much all evening,…...

With the Avalanche wrapping up their series against with a win over the Arizona Coyotes, instead of game grades, I’m doing series grades as the Avs are on to Round 2. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B This was a solid series for Bellemare. The offense isn’t really there but that isn’t why they got him. He did his job well in…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – A As far as back to back games from Bellemare, I don’ know if it gets any better. He was all over pucks again and had some big shot blocks on the penalty kill, especially the one at the end of the first. Nice to see that line get rewarded with a goal. Andre Burakovsky – B+…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – A The fourth line was incredible. Consistent offensive zone time, and grinding away every shift. Bellemare, through two periods, wasn’t even on the ice for a shot attempt against at even strength. Just a great performance from him, including a backdoor setup to Graves in the first that hit iron. Andre Burakovsky – B- Burakovsky’s ice time…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – C+ Overall, that line did really well in terms of possession, but definitely had some sloppy moments, like the rest of the team. Bellemare had a late icing that nearly hurt the team, but for the most part, the fourth line did what they need to do in keeping the other team out of the Avs end.…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B The fourth line was quite strong tonight, and Bellemare ended up being the guy that drew the power play that Kadri scored on. Just determination and hard work from all of them. Bellemare hit the post in the second period that nearly saw the Avs get on the board then. Andre Burakovsky – B+ Burky has…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – D+ I think we can stop calling this the fourth line because Bednar is using it as the third line at the moment. I was not a huge fan of their game overall, though. Bellemare had the chance to get the puck in deep just prior to the second Vegas goal and failed to do so, which…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B+ The fourth line that was hyped up through camp was put together again tonight, with Nieto coming back in, and it did not disappoint. Constant puck hounds and Bellemare was great all night, including matching up against Seguin time to time. Andre Burakovsky – A Well, he was demoted and hadn’t looked good since entering the…...

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B- The fourth line had a terrific start to the game but tailed off a bit after that. I did not really agree with the penalty call on him late in the game, but the bigger concern is the shot block that hit his hand and seemed to cause him some issues. That’ll be something to watch…...

Mark Barberio – C Barbs once again did not play much, but had a good chance in the first and broke up an icing late in the game. He even dropped back to defense to kill a penalty in the third. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B Bellemare playing in overtime is not something I ever anticipated seeing, but he even picked…...

Mark Barberio – D Barberio played forward again in this one, and I’m not sure why. The Avs scratched two forwards to do it. He barely played, at five minutes, and that’s with MacKinnon missing the final half of the game. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B Bellemare grinded it out in this one. His goal was flukey as can be, but…...

Mark Barberio – C Outside of two odd-man rushes allowed in the second period, the third pair was completely invisible, and extremely low event. Barberio was very quiet in this game, which isn’t the worst thing in the world. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare – B+ I really felt Bellemare had a strong game in this one, except for maybe the last minute…...

Mark Barberio – C- I really didn’t mind Barberio for most of this game. I thought he played quite well, for the most part, but did think there was a big dip in his game in the third period. He and Donskoi got mixed up big time on the dagger goal by Vancouver, as there was no communication. Pierre-Edouard Bellemare…...
