Postgame Wrap-Up: Grubauer Strong In Avs Win Over Hurricanes

The netminder made 42 saves in the victory

by Callie Parmele @CallieParmele / ColoradoAvalanche.com

RALEIGH, N.C.--Facing a team that consistently fires a high number of shots on net, the Colorado Avalanche relied heavily on its goaltender to get the win against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Philipp Grubauer finished Saturday's matinee with a career-high 42 saves and the Avs defeated the Hurricanes 3-1 at PNC Arena.

"Without the way he played tonight, we wouldn't have won this hockey game," said Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog. "We got two big points on the road, but we know that we need to play better defensively than what we did tonight. He was outstanding, and honestly it was one of the better goalie performances I have seen in a long time."
