The Colorado Avalanche let a real opportunity slip through their fingers in Game 5 when they had the St. Louis Blues on the verge of elimination but couldn’t finish the job. The Avalanche were up 3-0 four minutes into the second period but slowly let the Blues get back into the game and it culminated in them tying the game up with five minutes left in regulation.
Colorado then had the go-ahead goal two minutes later but couldn’t hold on to that lead and gave up the overtime-forcing goal with less than a minute left. The Blues rode their desperation and momentum to an overtime goal to give them the win and they now live to fight another day. This loss has shaken the Avalanche pretty much but they are still the better team in this series and will win tonight on the road and avoid playing a decisive game 7 against the Blues.
