Anderson Stretches Out – 11/23 vs. Philadelphia This big stop by Craig Anderson was one of the key plays in Colorado’s 5-4 win over the Flyers. After Cody McLeod put the Avs ahead, 3-2, Anderson stretched out to stop a low attempt by Mika Pyorala to keep the Avalanche in the lead.
Wilson Joins The Rush – 11/25 vs. Nashville Rookie Ryan Wilson netted his second career goal on this play. After blocking a shot in his own zone, Wilson joined Milan Hejduk on a rush going the other way. Skating hard, Wilson took a feed from Hejduk and got behind the Predators’ defense before beating Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne.
Jones Cross-Ice To Hejduk – 11/25 vs. Nashville Milan Hejduk’s team-leading 11th goal of the season tied the Avalanche with the Predators, 2-2. Defenseman Kyle Quincey dumped the puck into the offensive zone, where it eventually ended up on the stick of forward David Jones. Seeing Hejduk open on the opposite side of the ice, Jones threaded a pass over to his linemate for the score.
