The Colorado Avalanche lost their third straight game in overtime, this time a 5-4 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Sven Andrighetto (C+) – I loved what Andrighetto brought to that fourth line. He brought the same aggressive shooting mentality that has made him effective in his Colorado tenure. He needs to be moved up in the lineup immediately.

Tyson Barrie (F+) – The top pairing got obliterated tonight. A huge shot disparity is largely the fault of the Zadorov-Barrie pairing, which flat out was bad basically all game. Great goal by Barrie, though. That was sweet.

Gabriel Bourque (D) – Another poor game from a guy hanging on to his lineup spot basically because he plays the PK. I would be all for slotting in Yakupov here if Andrighetto remains on the fourth line and giving them a chance to score a few goals.
