The Sharks were the best team this series and it really showed the last three games. Even though the series was once tied at two games a piece, the turning point was in game two when the Avs were up 5-4 late and lost. If they win that one it puts a lot of pressure on the Sharks.
But the Avs did have a great season. They were picked to finish last in the west and they fought their way into the playoffs. We saw the coming of age of a bunch of young players.
The future looks quite bright for the Avs. I'm looking forward to next season.
