Postgame Avalanche-Stars: A point gained, but another blown third-period lead



I was going to go glass-half-empty tonight, with the Avalanche blowing yet another third-period lead, then losing in a shootout to the Dallas Stars. The final from American Airlines Arena: Dallas Stars 3, Avs 2.

But I’m going to try and accentuate the positive here. Well, I’ll try anyway.

First off, the Avs were the better team in regulation. They should have won it in those allotted 60 minutes, but they didn’t. Still, they controlled play for large stretches of the game, on enemy ice, on the second of a back-to-back.
