Here's a look at some of what was on the Denver Post web site this morning about Wednesday night's Game 7:
**Columnist Mark Kiszla blamed Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov for the loss. He wrote: "Here's the truth: He failed to glove a shot that would have kept the Avalanche alive. Four times, Colorado gave Varlamov a one-goal lead. Four times, Varlamov failed to hold it." The rest of the column is here.
**Another story was about how a great season was diminished by blowing a chance to advance in the playoffs, a feeling shared by Twins fans and, if they've been around long enough, Timberwolves fans. Terry Frei wrote: "Despite the disappointment of a first-round playoff exit after the 5-4 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday night, the Avalanche didn't just stage a remarkable turnaround this season, the first under coach Patrick Roy and with Joe Sakic atop the hockey hierarchy.The Avs also kept raising expectations."
**Here's the game story from the Post's hockey writer Adrian Dater.
**And here's postgame video from Avs coach Patrick Roy., where he says: "We believe in ourselves, and it's hard to see that it's over."
