Colorado crapped out in Vegas, losing 6-3 to the Golden Knights here Thursday. Hey, Super Joe.

    Positives to Avalanche's season buried beneath the bitter end

    Caufield, college stars add 'young energy' to NHL playoffs

    When the Montreal Canadiens were one goal away from being eliminated in the first round, and then again when they were one goal away from reaching the Stanley Cup semifinals, Cole Caufield set up the overtime winner each time. Caufield was dominating college hockey just two months earlier and suddenly at age 20 had become a key player for the NHL's most storied franchise. Along with Colorado forwards Alex Newhook and Sampo Ranta, and Florida goaltender Spencer Knight, Caufield's success jumping right into the playoffs fresh off playing a full college season could inspire more teams to infuse fresh blood into their lineups at the most intense time of year.
