Thanks, he did he didn’t a bit of gamesmanship on his part.

I don’t blame him he is doing ALL he can to help his squad win 2 of the next 3 games. He planted a seed.

I stand by what I saw last night and posted then and this morning. Shift change when Lehkonen got the puck 2 Lightning players struggling to “retire” as McKinnon was also leaving the Ice.

After both squads had played nearly 72 minutes of hockey carrying 50 pounds of DRY equipment before the game at that point 65-70 pounds trying to get over 42” boards is getting next to impossible. McKinnon is 6’1” 200 pounds dry naked. Understandable he would wait for the door. Nate’s position in the rink had No impact on the play or offer any advantage to the Avalanche or hinder the 2 defensemen Kadri split and beat. Nor obstruct Valesecky in clearly seeing Kadri’s approach or shot which he was in perfect position to block or deflect it. The goalie simply missed on an amazingly quick shot from a cat with a healing broken thumb. (Probably adrenaline!)

Yes you are absolutely correct Jon Cooper is a great coach. However he is not immune from exercising gamesmanship which I applaud, whining about penalty calls but has been primarily failure of his team’s power play execution. Or play some “goon hockey” to take away the speed advantage which we have witnessed early in games 2-4. I expect to see even more tomorrow night and continue to play that desperate way so long as the score is even or they are behind.

But thankfully, win or lose going into game 5 the Avs have the advantage in those next 3 contests IF needed.

Speed kills, fatigue makes cowards of us all. Go Avs.
