Avs player grades from win over Lightning



Darcy Kuemper
When the lightning strikes
Zip gun Johnny’s finger is itchin’
The lid’s gonna blow up in hell’s kitchen
It’s an eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
It’s so ruthless when they fight
When the lightning strikes
Great win for the Avs over the Lightning tonight. Let’s do some of those grades:
Jack Johnson: (C ) – Tough night for JJ, though he battled as always. Caught trailing the play badly on first Lightning goal. I liked how he just put it behind him, though, and kept fighting. Actually, I’m already regretting this grade. He was probably better than that.
Erik Johnson: (B-) – Caught flat-footed at blue line on Tampa’s second goal, but a pretty good night otherwise. People haven’t given him enough credit this season for all the hits (he’s the team leader) and blocked shots this season.
Gabe Landeskog: (A)- Loved his game tonight. Classic tip for Avs’ first goal, his 20th of the season and the NINTH time he’s achieved that number in his career. Loved the way he stuck up for Mikko Rantanen in the the third period, even after fellow Swede Victor Hedman roughed him up some.
