The Avs' backend really struggled tonight, which led to a second straight blowout. This is a game where the offense did mostly what they needed to do, but every time they turned around the puck was in their net.

Sven Andrighetto (D+) – He reminds me of Nail Yakupov, absolutely dripping with speed and skill, but for some reason can't seem to generate much of anything right now. His positive Corsi numbers kept him from getting an F tonight.

Tyson Barrie (D) – A great example of why the "eye test" is still important. If you just looked at fancies, Barrie had a great night! But he really really struggled with turnovers tonight; one led directly to a goal against.
