GLENDALE - That, folks, is exactly how you blow an opportunity to make life easier for yourself. Given a four-game homestand with three games against teams on the outside of the playoff picture, Colorado went 2-2. They finished up their extremely mediocre week by laying an egg in Arizona in a 6-4 loss to the Coyotes.
Sure, they made this one interesting with three third-period goals that brought them back from being down 4-1. But against a team that's likely already playing for draft position, why in the world were you down by three to begin with? What is it about this team that just doesn't seem ready to handle sustained success yet?
