Hejduk Picks The Corner – 1/14 vs. Minnesota
The Avalanche was already up on the Wild, 1-0, when Milan Hejduk
doubled that lead following a nice little give-and-go with Paul Stastny
. While the Avs were on a power play, Hejduk took the return pass from Stastny and put a quick, well-placed wrist shot past Minnesota netminder Anton Khudobin for the eventual game-winning goal. Liles Connects – 1/18 vs. Vancouver
John-Michael Liles scored one of the Avalanche’s three power-play goals during a 4-3 overtime victory against Vancouver. After receiving a cross-ice pass from Milan Hejduk
, Liles fired a wrist shot from the right circle that eluded Canucks netminder Roberto Luongo. Jones’ Second OT Winner – 1/18 vs. Vancouver
netted his second overtime winner in the month of January to lead the Avs to a 4-3 win over the Canucks. With just over two minutes remaining in the extra session, Jones lunged after a Tomas Fleischmann centering feed and got off a shot that ended up being the decisive goal.
