, Kevin Porter
and Mark Olver
are nominated this week.
Voting ends on Monday, April 11 at 3:00 p.m. MT, so be sure to cast your ballot today!
O’Reilly Leads The Way – 4/1 @ Phoenix
Ryan O’Reilly put the team on his back against Phoenix, scoring the game-tying goal late in regulation and then netting the shootout winner. On his shootout attempt, O’Reilly picked up speed and came straight at Phoenix goalie Ilya Bryzgalov before snapping a shot between the netminder’s legs. Porter Bests Halak – 4/5 @ St. Louis
The Avs were down a goal against the Blues when Kevin Porter
netted his 14th tally of the season. After collecting a pass from Matt Duchene
behind the Avalanche net, rookie Mark Olver
slid a pass to Porter in the low slot. Porter then went forehand to backhand to beat St. Louis netminder Jaroslav Halak.
Olver Knocks One Home – 4/7 @ Dallas
scored the second goal of his rookie season after some nice work by his teammates. Matt Duchene
began the play by making a fancy move to get around Karlis Skrastins and then threaded a cross-ice pass to Ryan Wilson
. The defenseman then threw a centering feed in front, where Olver tipped it home.
