The Colorado Avalanche have now gone 100 minutes without scoring a goal in this 2011-12 season. After two period against the Boston Bruins, the Avalanche are tied with them at zero. The Avalanche still hold an edge in shooting, 26-18, but there are brick walls in the net. Semyon Varlamov and Tuukka Rask are coming up with big saves.
Boston had a good chance to score with a minute left on the clock, but the Avalanche were able to prevent Brad Marchand from getting off a shot while he looked to score from the wing.
One of these goalies has to give up something up, and we can only hope that it's Rask. A punchless offense by the Avalanche is the last thing we want to see at the start of the season.
