Porter’s First Of Two – 11/6 vs. Dallas
Some hard work led to Kevin Porter
’s first goal of the 2010-11 season. Following a faceoff in the offensive zone, David Van Der Gulik
was able to occupy two Stars defenders. That allowed Porter to pick up a loose puck to the right of Dallas netminder Andrew Raycroft and bring it to the front of the goal, where he deposited a backhand attempt into the back of the net. Porter would go on to add a second goal as Colorado cruised to a 5-0 win. Dupuis’ Shorty – 11/6 vs. Dallas
Philippe Dupuis’ first NHL goal was a memorable one. With the Avs short-handed in the second period, Dupuis beat Dallas forward Brad Richards to a loose puck near the blue line and went on a 2-on-1 with Kevin Porter
. With the passing lane shut down, Dupuis elected to take the shot and beat Andrew Raycroft with a wrister. Yip’s Tip – 11/6 vs. Dallas
Brandon Yip put the icing on Colorado’s 5-0 victory over Dallas, rounding out the scoring with some crafty stick work. Heading up the ice on a 2-on-2 rush with teammate Matt Duchene
, Yip got a step on Dallas forward Mike Ribeiro and was able to reach out his stick to tip in a Duchene centering feed.
