Avalanche Play Of The Week: March 25-31

by Colorado Avalanche / Colorado Avalanche
ColoradoAvalanche.com is again asking for your help in determining the Avalanche's "Play of the Week" each week during the regular season. At the end of the year, a bracket-style tournament will be held to determine, via fan voting, the Avalanche's "Play of the Year."


Goals by Milan Hejduk, Matt Duchene and David Jones are nominated this week.

Voting ends on Monday, April 4 at 3:00 p.m. MT, so be sure to cast your ballot today!

Hejduk Gets 20 Again – 3/26 @ Los Angeles
Veteran Milan Hejduk scored his 20th goal of the season in a game against the Kings, marking the 11th consecutive season he has reached that plateau. Late in the second period Matt Duchene put pressure on Drew Doughty behind the net, causing an errant pass that ended up on the stick of Paul Stastny at the goal line extended. Stastny then fed it in front to Hejduk, who put a wrister past Jonathan Quick.




Duchene Capitalizes – 3/28 @ Anaheim
Matt Duchene started and finished Colorado’s second goal against the Anaheim Ducks. The sophomore used a nice move to slip around Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf just inside the blue line before sending a pass over to Milan Hejduk in the slot. Hejduk’s shot attempt was turned aside, but Duchene was in prime position to bury the rebound for his 27th goal of the season.




Winnik To Jones – 3/28 @ Anaheim
After the Avalanche thwarted an Anaheim attack, Daniel Winnik and David Jones worked a two-man game that resulted in the latter’s 25th goal of the season. Jones gained control of the puck in the defensive zone and carried it all the way across the opposite blue line before giving it up to Winnik, who spun off Francois Beauchemin before giving it back to Jones for the score.
