On paper, the Colorado Avalanche seem like an opportunity for Washington Capitals players to stack up some shots on goal and maybe points.
The Avs crumbled even more than that paper even suggested on Saturday, too.
It was a laugher for Washington, as they won 7-3. Granted, it wasn’t funny for Patrick Roy & Co.
Roy seemed to acknowledge that Reto Berra struggled in net, even if the fiery former goalie isn’t caving to critics who say his system isn’t up to snuff.
Will Varlamov right the ship, or will Roy need to find someone else to blame?
(In case you’re wondering, Evgeny Kuznetsov was the Capitals player who seemed to benefit the most with a one-goal, two-assist night.)
