Avalanche-Wild: Av's Lose 2-0

Shane GirouxSenior Analyst IJanuary 5, 2009

I want to burn through the recap to get to the really interesting part of the night.

Two second recap

The Avs lost. They couldn't score. They couldn't play defense. Adam Foote got hurt. Darcy Tucker classed the joint up. Wojtek Wolski wants to continue playing center. 

The fun part


AD has gone on another classic rant

And it was good.  Right until the end.

Oh, and has anybody checked out Theodore’s record lately? 13-6-1. Yeah, we didn’t need guys like him anymore.

Must the horse continue to be beaten?

Theodore, and the Caps are on a good run right now. Theodore has let in just one or two goals per game for his last four games.

Before that, he was living up to his unfortunate "three-or-four" nickname.

The Capitals were winning in spite of Theodore's play.

Their individual stats—which of course have their flaws, are nearly identical.
Theodore - 2.98 GAA, .892 Save Pct
Budaj - 2.84 GAA, .899 Save Pct

Francois Giguere made many questionable moves this offseason but letting Theodore walk was not one of those moves.

He's spot on with regards to Andrew Brunette, Stephane Yelle and the Toronto cast-offs.

Giguere's job will only be saved thanks to the injuries to Paul Stastny and Joe Sakic.
