Sunday's Dump & Chase: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Frederick Breedon

Last night's result shouldn't be too much of a surprise. The Avs are better, and clearly have no trouble scoring, which is really the point of the game. But it was a blow to those hanging on to that 1.3% chance of making the playoffs…losing to a division opponent at home isn't gonna improve those chances. Will the Preds be able to make up some ground against Dallas on Monday? Every loss gets us that much closer to that dreaded (but likely inevitable) 0.0%.
