Matt Duchene On Colorado’s 5-0 To Minnesota Last Night

from Nick Groke of All Things Avs,

Avs center Matt Duchene said Colorado didn’t see the train coming before it ran them over on Thursday.

“We just weren’t ready for last night,” Duchene said Friday after a gym workout. “We didn’t know what was going to hit us. We played terrible.”...

“That was a clinic for them last night,” Duchene said. “They absolutely dominated us. They probably deserved to win 8-0.”

Duchene managed just one shot on goal in his 19 minutes and 56 seconds on the ice at Minnesota. And he shouldered some blame for the rout, saying nobody, it seemed, wanted to take charge on against the Wild.

“Everyone has to take responsibility for their own game and not pass the problem off to their teammates and their linemates,” Duchene said. “A lot of us didn’t want the puck last night. There were a lot of times we passed the problem to somebody else.”
