Avalanche kick away another game in third period at home, this time to Wild



The record in the last six games: 2-4-0. The home record in the last three games: 0-3-0. All three, blown leads in third periods.

The hard truth about the Colorado Avalanche right now: they are not playing very good hockey. Sure, there was that nice win in Vegas before the Christmas break and, yeah, there was a solid win in Chicago on national TV a week before Christmas.

Otherwise, there have been two straight home losses to out-of-the-playoffs, Central Division opponents, the latest being 6-4 to the Minnesota Wild Friday night at the Pepsi Center.

The NHL is all about parity, there’s little separating the teams, etc., etc. I get that. But you can’t lose these kinds of games the Avs have lately at home, especially in the way they’ve been doing it. In all three of the recent home losses, the Avs have let things slip away in the third period.
