After a very up-and-down start to the Avs’ season, Wednesday night’s 6-2 loss to the Boston Bruins was a whole lot of down.

The Avs gave up five unanswered goals in the first two periods, and the Bruins never looked back.

During his postgame press conference, head coach Patrick Roy was blunt when it came to his team’s performance.

“We didn’t compete like we should,” Roy said. “I understand if we don’t have our A-game; that doesn’t mean we need to be five-nothing in the hole before we start playing.”

Whether it was the giveaways or the mistimed line changes, Colorado continued to give the Bruins unneeded advantages throughout the game.

“It’s unacceptable,” Roy said. “We can’t play like this. If we want to make the playoffs, this is not the type of performance we need.”

And while Roy admitted that this wasn’t they type of outing he or his goaltender, Semyon Varlamov, wanted to have, he didn’t place the loss on Varly’s shoulders; this, in Roy’s eyes, is a bigger issue than one man.

Colorado will have a chance to redeem themselves on Friday against the 0-2-1 Anaheim Ducks.
