The Avalanche came out absolutely flying in the first period, then they decided to call it a night and they had to lean on Semyon Varlamov just to stay in it. Grades from their 3-2 OT loss are below.

Tyson Barrie (C) – A pretty average night for Barrie. Nothing show-stopping on offense, but no real glaring errors in his own end.

Gabriel Bourque (D) – You love his hustle, but that's pretty much where it ends for Bourque.

Matt Calvert (C) – You have to love the way this guy plays on the penalty kill. Very busy stick, always active on the perimeter.

Ian Cole (C+) –  Cole has been extremely reliable for the Avs in the early-going for Colorado, more of the same tonight.
