Avalanche Play Of The Week: March 4-10

by Colorado Avalanche / Colorado Avalanche 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."

Jonas Holos, Kevin Porter and Peter Budaj are this week's nominees.

Voting ends on Monday, March 14 at 3:00 p.m. MT, so be sure to cast your ballot today!

Holos Hits Reddox – 3/5 vs. Edmonton
Late in the first period of the Avalanche/Oilers tilt, defenseman Jonas Holos threw a hit on Edmonton’s Liam Reddox. Reddox flew up the right wing and put a backhand attempt on net when Holos bumped him, sending Reddox (partially due to his momentum) hard into the end boards.

Porter Hits Camera – 3/8 @ Minnesota
On a strange play, forward Kevin Porter corralled a rebound of a Ryan Wilson attempt and put a shot on goal that initially appeared to have either hit the post or been stopped somehow by Minnesota goalie Niklas Backstrom. The action continued for nearly three minutes until the next whistle, at which point the play was reviewed and it was determined that Porter’s shot had actually gone into the net for a good goal, bouncing out after hitting the in-goal camera.

Budaj Flashes His Glove – 3/8 @ Minnesota
Colorado and Minnesota were tied at 1-1 and the Avs were on a power play when Wild forward John Madden skated the puck over the blue line and unleashed a big slap shot from the top of the left circle. Avalanche netminder Peter Budaj was up to the task, quickly snagging Madden’s attempt with his glove.
