Avs Push Back In 5-3 Loss To Caps

by Ryan Boulding @rboulding / ColoradoAvalanche.com

The visiting Washington Capitals scored first and last on Wednesday night at Pepsi Center, but it was what the Colorado Avalanche did in-between that mattered in the 5-3 loss.

The game didn't reflect the score, and as the clock ticked down in the third period, the Avs made a push to try and close the 4-3 deficit they faced. They had already scored twice-Matt Nieto and Nathan MacKinnon found twine-to make things interesting in the second half of the match.

"We're learning I guess from the past few games. We kept driving," defenseman Mark Barberio said after the loss. "Four-one down, it could have been easy to just hang our heads, but we kept the energy up. Obviously, it's a pretty amazing goal there by MacK, and that gave the team a lot of momentum. Came pretty close to grabbing that tying goal. We had some chances at the end."

Bednar is looking for the same thing tonight as the Avs host the Washington Capitals at Pepsi Center.

Third-Period Struggles Continue In Edmonton

by Ryan Boulding @rboulding / ColoradoAvalanche.com

Colorado Avalanche forward Sven Andrighetto has been a bright spot for the club since he was acquired on March 1 as part of a trade-deadline deal with the Montreal Canadiens.

During a stretch where scoring has been hard to come by for many on Colorado's roster, the longest Andrighetto has been held off the scoresheet is just two consecutive games.

He continued his offensive output on Saturday night, as he was the only Avalanche player to find netting in the team's 4-1 loss at the Edmonton Oilers, potting his fourth point (two goals, two assists) in his previous five contests.

Good Effort Falls Short Versus St. Louis

by Ryan Boulding @rboulding / ColoradoAvalanche.com

Colorado Avalanche forward John Mitchell went from being a healthy scratch on Sunday to a inspiring goalscorer on Tuesday.

The turnaround was significant in that Mitchell helped propel the club to an outstanding start tin its meeting with the St. Louis Blues at Pepsi Center. However, the momentum couldn't be sustained and the home team fell 4-2.

"It's always nice when you can come in and contribute and score a goal and get the team started in the right direction at the beginning of the game," Mitchell said. "So that's always good, but at the end of the day you want two points."
