Stewart’s Wrister – 12/5 @ Columbus Shortly after the Blue Jackets cut the Avalanche’s lead to 2-1, Columbus was again putting on the pressure. After a scramble in front of Peter Budaj, Wojtek Wolski pushed the puck up the ice before finding Chris Stewart at the blue line. Stewart walked to the top of the left faceoff circle and looked like he was going to feed a cutting Paul Stastny. Instead, the forward threw a wrist shot past Steve Mason for his fourth tally of the year.
Stastny Cleans Up – 12/7 @ St. Louis Paul Stastny finished off a nice give-and-go play between Wojtek Wolski and Chris Stewart. Wolski first beat Barret Jackman to a puck in the offensive zone before throwing a saucer pass over to Stewart. Stewart then returned the feed, but when Wolski was hit and couldn’t finish the play, Stastny swooped in and netted his eighth goal of the season.
Wilson Crushes Oshie – 12/7 @ St. Louis After receiving a pass from Carlo Colaiacovo near the Avalanche blue line, T.J. Oshie looked to carry the puck into the offensive zone. However, Oshie was met by rookie defenseman Ryan Wilson, who threw a thundering hit on the St. Louis forward.
