  • Hey Guys, Didn’t Z make an egregious turn over that led to San Jose’s third goal in game 7 of the playoffs last year? I think Donskoi was the beneficiary of that turnover. Speaking of costing the avs a playoff game. Dater said he has over 30 turnovers last year and this year. I like Z on the team, his physical presence when he asserts it, but I hate the Turnovers defensive break downs and the sloppy play he puts out there sometimes. It is like he goes into brain lock and just stops thinking.

    • I don’t know that turnovers get officially tracked and “giveaways” and “takeaways” are terrible stats with no consistent tracking. But the eyes definitely say Z is a little more turnover prone than the other D.

  • Remain calm, Avs fans! There are 15 games left in the season, and we trail the Blues by 2 points in the standings. There is a lot of hockey left to be played. But remember this: we close the season at home against St Louis. As long as we are within a point or two, the final standings will come down to that home game. Of course, in an ideal world, we would pull away. But all we need to do is hold serve until that big game in early April.
