Patrick Roy promised that this would be a high scoring affair, at least on the Avs side of things, however the game started with a thud rather than a bang. For the most part we were treated to a sleepy 20 minutes, as neither club took many chances except a couple half breakaways early in the period.
Brandon Prust went down with another injury, however he quickly returned to the bench. I didn't catch if he actually took a shift late in the 1st, so we'll have to keep an eye on the ever-injured player.
