Goals from Paul Stastny, Chris Durno and Kyle Cumiskey are nominated this week.
Voting ends on Monday, Feb. 15 at 3:00 p.m. MT, so be sure to cast your ballot today!
Hard Work Pays Off – 2/8 vs. St. Louis Paul Stastny scored a pretty goal that was set up by some hard work from his linemates. Chris Stewart put on a very aggressive forecheck, causing St. Louis’ Carlo Colaiacovo to cough up the puck in his own zone. Marek Svatos got to it first and made a pass over to Paul Stastny, who went forehand to backhand to elude a St. Louis defender before putting the puck into the top right corner of the net.
Durno’s Dive – 2/10 vs. Atlanta The third goal of Chris Durno’s NHL career couldn’t have come at a better time. With the Avs trailing the Atlanta Thrashers by a 3-2 count late in the third period, Durno dove out to reach a loose puck and threw a backhand attempt past Atlanta netminder Johan Hedberg to send the game to overtime.
Cumiskey Quick In OT – 2/10 vs. Atlanta Kyle Cumiskey scored the game-winning goal just nine seconds into overtime against Atlanta. After Paul Stastny won the opening faceoff in the extra session, Cumiskey skated up-ice, weaving through all four Atlanta defenders before making a quick move to beat Thrashers goaltender Johan Hedberg and give Colorado a 4-3 victory.
