A Goalie Issue In Colorado?

from Ryan O'Halloran; of the Denver Post,

The Avalanche are back in a familiar situation this postseason with a series lead but without a lead goalie.

Squandering an opportunity to take command of the Stanley Cup Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning here Monday night, the Avalanche were sub-par in all three zones. And, goalie Darcy Kuemper was removed after allowing five goals on 22 shots of an eventual 6-2 Lightning win.

“I didn’t think he had a good night; neither did our team so you win as a team and lose as a team and I group him in with everybody else,” Avs coach Jared Bednar said of Kuemper.

The good news: The Avalanche lead the series 2-1 and are two wins away from a championship.

The bad news: It may require a second goalie to get the Avs across the finish line. Again.
