Let your voice be heard in selecting Colorado’s “Play of the Week” each week during the season.
This week, Marek Svatos, David Jones and Chris Stewart are up for the honors.
We’ve offered up three choices, and now it's your turn to choose the top play by voting on the poll below or on the homepage of ColoradoAvalanche.com. At the end of the season, a bracket-style tournament will be held to determine – once again, through fan voting – the Avalanche’s “Play of the Year”.
Check out this week’s three nominees, and be sure to vote for your favorite by Monday at 12:00 p.m. MT.
Svatos Sends it to OT - 12/5 @ Dallas With the clock winding down in the third period and the Stars holding a 1-0 lead, Marek Svatos sent the game to overtime after taking a feed from Paul Stastny and putting the puck past Dallas netminder Marty Turco with 55.5 seconds remaining.
Jones Goes Airborne - 12/7 vs. Vancouver Forward David Jones scored this goal by hustling from one end of the ice to the other before trying to split the defense by hopping around Vancouver defender Shane O’Brien. The Canucks’ blueliner got a piece of him, but Jones stayed with the play and – while suspended in mid-air – was able to somehow get his stick on the puck and knock it past Cory Schneider at 5:14.
Stewart's First Tally - 12/9 vs. Los Angeles With the Avs short-handed, Ian Laperriere batted the puck down the ice with his hands. From there, rookie Chris Stewart raced to the puck and found himself on a breakaway with Kings netminder Jason LaBarbera. The goaltender made a pad save on Stewart’s initial attempt, but the Toronto native buried his own rebound for his first career NHL goal.
