If my own recap wasn't enough for you, here's some other write-ups of last night's game


Mainstream Media

Denver Post - Standard Newspaper Write-up

All Things Avs Adrian Dater talks about some truly atrocious officiating that marred an otherwise great game 1.

In Denver Times: Bruce Wilkie Has a write-up as well.

Denver Post: Terri Frei Terri Frei points out how the Avs, ok Anderson, killing that opening penalty set the tone for the game. He also praises TJ Galiardi.

Denver Post: Mark Kiszla Kiszla talks about some different Avs game last night, one I apparently missed, where Duchene (1A, 0 shots on goal) was the fearless rookie and Paul Stastny (2 assists, 2 SoG) somehow didn't impress him, even on that last shift where he, Galiardi and Stewart cycled the puck brilliantly and won the game. Apparently creating a goal in the last minute of a tie playoff game isn't clutch enough or something.

San Jose Mercury News

Mercury News: THE AVS GOT LUCKY! San Jose was pinned in their zone for like 1:00 on that shift. That's how you control your own luck sometimes. Bad luck happens more often when you let the other team dominate you. And the Sharks were dominated on that last shift.
