Default Avs twice blow 3-goal leads

The Avalanche remains a sunny, inspirational, surprise story of the NHL this season. The fact that the playoffs are at all a possibility right now is a lot better than just about every hockey pundit had forecast.

If only the Avs hadn't blown so many games, the playoffs would be a deadbolt certainty by now.

Tuesday night's 6-4 loss to the Vancouver Canucks at the Pepsi Center qualifies as the season's most painful setback for the Avs, a game in which they flat-out blew it. In each of the three losses they've had since NHL play resumed last week, the Avs lost the game from goals in the final 10 minutes of regulation two within the final three minutes.

Leads of 3-0 and 4-1 Tuesday could not be sustained, and a jittery-looking Avs team finally lost it all when Jannik Hansen scored after a puck deflected in off his arm with 2:08 left.

complety agree with this sabresfan101 , but anyway I think the Avs get to "cocky" when they are up. You cant do this in the league anymore no teams give up when thier down. (I am not saying they gave up in the past). The league is way to skilled to "give up" on any teams no matter what the senerio or score diffrence.
