Let’s nice waste any time with small talk and just get right to another bunch of disappointing Avalanche player grades from tonight’s game with Vancouver:
Alexander Kerfoot (D) – Played on a line with MacKinnon and Wilson, and had no shots on net in the first period. It makes sense on paper to put him with a shooter like MacKinnon, but he didn’t have the puck enough to make this line effective.
Nathan MacKinnon (B-) – I thought he skated his butt off and tried to get pucks on net and make plays, but nothing went in for him. He’s got one goal in seven games now.
