Jack Johnson: C – Finished a minus one and no shots on net. He wasn’t noticeable out there tonight for the Avalanche. There was a lot of standing around and watching.

Bo Byram: C- – He had four shots on net and felt like he was all over the ice but not in a good way.

Erik Johnson: D – This was a defensive collapse by everyone. He was a minus-two with a little over 17 minutes played.

Devon Toews : D – He and Makar really struggled out there. Each was a minus-three and left a few guys alone in front of the net.

Cale Makar: D+ – He had two assists tonight but again, the defensive miscues outweigh the points

Andrew Cogliano: D – He was feisty out there tonight, but there wasn’t much else from him. He threw a couple of punches at the end of the 2nd and 3rd periods.

Valeri Nichushkin: C- – Almost got the team going but it was ruled offside. He was fairly quiet after that point with one shot on net

Nicolas Aube-Kubel : D – He jumped back into the lineup after Andre Burakovsky was ruled out. He played a little over six minutes with four hits. In this game, that didn’t matter much.

Alex Newhook: D – He took a few big hits and wasn’t a threat offensively. The game got out of hand and that’s when the penalties started piling up for the Avalanche.

Logan O’Connor : D – He had a couple of giveaways in 12 minutes played. Time to regroup for Wednesday

Nathan MacKinnon: C – He was frustrated and was playing like it. He took the shot on a 3-on-1 rush, which isn’t bad, but I wonder if he was going to take that shot no matter what
