After picking up a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series with the Minnesota Wild, the Colorado Avalanche have dropped the last two games, allowing Minnesota to pull even heading into Game 5 as the round returns to Denver. Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy, understandably perturbed that his team had blown a chance to either sweep their playoff series or at least gain a commanding three-games-to-one lead, had an interesting post-game quote following Colorado’s 2-1 loss in Game 4.
Via Rob Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun:
“We’re right there with them. Now it’s time, sorry about the words, to put our balls on the table.” – Avs coach Patrick Roy on Game 5

Never change, Mr. Roy. Never change.
