LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Player grades for Colorado's tilt against the Vegas Golden Knights.
Sven Andrighetto (C+) – There was some jump from him! He got swapped onto the second line and magic happened immediately and he failed to cash in as he so frequently does. This is the stuff that drives you crazy about him.
Tyson Barrie (D+) – One one shift tonight, Barrie turned the puck over with an ill-advised stretch pass, failed to adequately cover his guy defensively and watched Vegas get a golden (haha, get it?) scoring chance, then took a penalty. And when he got out of the box, he jumped offside to negate an odd-man rush for the Avs. What the hell.
Gabriel Bourque (C+) –Another game, another day with people wondering what he brings to the lineup. Of course, like is usually the case, Bourque was nowhere near their biggest problem. But what is he legitimately adding? I dunno. I give up. I might just start copying and pasting this every night.
