08:21 AM ET 02.07 | It's unclear whether Avs fans, frustrated with another dispiriting performance, stayed to watch their team or to boo them Wednesday night -- a sentiment shared by one of the team's top players. Fans started making a mass exit around the 10-minute mark of the third period, and the ones who remained did a lot of booing. "It's painful right now," Avs center Matt Duchene said. ... "We've been shut out three times in 10 games. That's unacceptable. That's almost 50-percent of the games we're getting shut out in. That's a joke. We've got to figure it out here. We've got to bear down more in practice and try to make a few more plays every now and then. We're just knifing the puck in all the time instead of trying to get inside and score a goal."

Was it Twain or Lincoln who said: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out..."

Just isn't his thing.

Leave the kid alone. We can take all those guys who can't score, we lose 80% of our games. That's almost half. Right?

"Jethro" was the greatest at math...maybe Duchene should study Jethro's proven "goesintoos" formulas...

Just like the season's almost a quarter done, and Phil Kessel has scored a 0th of goals.

Eh, at least Seguin doesn't have more points than him.

True but Kessel's still ugly. ;-)
