Open Post- Game 2 Of The Western Conference Final

Can Edmonton get some goaltending and can they stop the Colorado offense?

If not, they travel home down 0-2.

Darcy Kuemper won't play tonight for the Avs, Pavel Francouz starts in goal

via the NHL PR Department,

After the two clubs combined for the second-highest scoring game in Conference Finals history (tied), the Avalanche and Oilers will contest Game 2 of the Western Conference Final at Ball Arena.

* Teams that take a 1-0 series lead in the Conference Finals/Semifinals advance to the Final 69 percent of the time (127-57), though both series winners last year lost Game 1 (MTL: 4-1 L at VGK; TBL: 2-1 L vs. NYI). When a team pulls ahead 2-0 in this round, that percentage rises to 93 percent (91-7).

Wonder if Leafs could have used Kadri in the playoffs.

Ya think?

3 goals for the Avs on 3 consecutive shots in the 2nd period.  Colorado up 3-0 after 40 minutes.

4-0 final.

Oilers played a decent first period but they could not compete with them after that.

Kind of a strange game. Edmonton offense just never got started tonight, it was strange to see them so neutralized.

The first col was a great subtle tip, just enough to get it past Smith.

The fourth one was strange, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a goalie lose their glove during play.
