Player grades for the Colorado Avalanche's loss to the New York Islanders.
Sven Andrighetto (D) – Not great, Bob. I loved his game in St. Louis but he's immediately fallen back into the familiar pattern we've seen in his Colorado career. Flashes of excellence followed by a few games of being a total non-factor.
Tyson Barrie (C-) – On one hand, he snagged an assist and came close to a couple more points. On the other, he was far too turnover-prone and he can't be giving back the gains he creates on offense. I don't think he did that tonight but with as much PP time as the Avs had, they weren't nearly good enough and Barrie is the QB of PP1.
Gabriel Bourque (D) –Crushes almost every offensive chance his line produces. I don't understand why this guy remains in the lineup with the way the PK continues to struggle.
