EDMONTON, ALBERTA – Too many injuries. Just too many injuries. For the Avs of 2019-20, that should be the unfortunate title to their season highlight film. Either that, or “The Valiant Bunch.”
What the Avs did in this second-round series with the Dallas Stars was pretty damn remarkable. They lost SEVEN regular players from the start of Game 1 to today’s Game 7. And yet they just kept battling, kept extending the series, kept outplaying the Stars for significant portions of games.
