Patrick Roy sounds off in defense of players

KUSA - In a day and age when it seems most sports figures talk without saying anything, Patrick Roy remains a refreshing change of pace. Shortly after Tyson Barrie was knocked out for 4-6 weeks by Matt Cooke, Roy revealed it was a knee injury. He admitted he could have called it a "lower body" injury, but said everyone saw the play. Roy and honesty have always gone hand in hand.

Colorado is back in Colorado getting ready for game 5 in their series with the Minnesota Wild. At home, the Avalanche scored nine goals and won both games. On the road their offense has been AWOL with just one goal in two games. People have been getting on the Avalanche, but today Roy came to their defense. He asked sarcastically today if any NHL team has ever gone 16-0?

Roy also joked that his team said when getting on the plane, "lets stop, lets lose those 2 games."

Patrick has pushed the right buttons all season long, now we'll see if he can do it in the regular season.

Game 5 between the Avalanche and Wild is set for 7:30 Saturday night.
