Anderson Earns Play Of The Week Honors

by Colorado Avalanche / Colorado Avalanche
Craig Anderson earned "Avalanche Play of the Week" honors in what turned out to be one of the closest races in the competition's history.


Anderson's sliding stop on New York Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky took home 34.72% of the vote, barely topping Chris Stewart's tip-in goal against the Rangers (34.26%) and Kyle Cumiskey's blast against San Jose (31.02%).

The play now automatically qualifies for Colorado’s year-end “Play of the Year” bracket-style tournament – to be determined by Avalanche fans. Be sure to check back each Friday during the season, as three new choices for the Avalanche’s “Play of the Week” will be posted for you to vote upon.

Anderson’s Recovery – 10/18 @ NY Rangers
The Avalanche and Rangers were tied at 1-1 when Avalanche goalie Craig Anderson misplayed the puck, but quickly made up for it with a huge save to keep the game all squared. After the Rangers dumped the puck behind the Avalanche net, Anderson quickly settled it and then played it to the right half wall. New York forward Brandon Dubinsky was able to beat Kyle Quincey to the loose puck and quickly put a shot on goal, but Anderson slid across his crease in time to make the stop.
