Postgame Wrap-Up: Second Period Lapse Costly

Four-point nights weren't enough for the Avalanche to beat the Oilers

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

A pair of four-point nights wasn't enough for the Colorado Avalanche to overcome a deficit against the Edmonton Oilers.

The Oilers scored four times in a 7:16 span in the second period to break open Tuesday's game at Pepsi Center and eventually defeated the Avalanche 6-4.

"It's a focus that right now we're not sustaining for 60 minutes," Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said afterward. "The purpose that we played with during that stretch when we were winning was on point for 60 minutes. Right now, it's in and out, and it can't be in and out in this league. The teams are too good."
