The Colorado Avalanche lost to the Columbus Blue Jackets in overtime in the NHL on Monday night, and while that fanbase can't be shocked when their club loses a game these days, it's always difficult to stomach a loss that happens the way this one did.
Thanks to a late Jamie McGinn powerplay goal, the Avalanche led this game 3-2 with under two minutes to go. But only 35 seconds after McGinn put them ahead, R.J. Umberger tied the game for Columbus. The Blue Jackets went on to win in the final minute of overtime.
That's disappointing, and if you want an example of how disappointing, just listen to the incredible no-sell from Colorado's play-by-play guy, Mike Haynes (just press play on the video above).
"2-on-1 Jackets, but Duchene is flying back! Foligno shot! Score. And the Blue Jackets win in overtime, four to three."
Safe to assume he did the Charlie Brown walk all the way to his car that night. This may as well have been the final scene of "Bambi".
("Bambi's mom into the clearing. Hunter shot! Score. And Bambi is left to contemplate the brutality of man.")
It's the anti-call of the year.
