Avalanche Play of the Week - Oct. 1-8

by ColoradoAvalanche.com - Official Site of the Colorado Avalanche / Colorado Avalanche
For the second consecutive year, ColoradoAvalanche.com will allow fans to vote on the Avalanche's "Play of the Week" each week during the regular season. At the end of the season, a bracket-style tournament will be held to determine, via fan voting, the Avalanche's "Play of the Year."


This week, two goals by Wojtek Wolski and a save by Craig Anderson are nominated.

Voting ends on Monday, Oct. 12 at 3:00 p.m. MT, so be sure to cast your ballot today!

Stastny No-Look to Wolski - Oct. 1 vs. San Jose
Wojtek Wolski netted his second goal on opening night off a no-look feed from Paul Stastny. After a Kyle Quincey shot missed the net and bounced off the end boards, Stastny made a behind-the-back pass in front to Wolski, who stuffed it home to make it a 4-2 game.

 


Anderson’s Glove Save on Blake - Oct. 1 vs. San Jose
With just under seven minutes remaining in the third period against San Jose – and with the Sharks on a two-minute, 5-on-3 power play – netminder Craig Anderson came up with a big stop. Sharks’ defenseman Rob Blake fired off a one-timer from between the circles, but Anderson made a quick glove save.

 


Wolski Finishes Tic-Tac-Toe Play – Oct. 3 vs. Vancouver
Wojtek Wolski scored for the third time of the year on this play, which turned out to be the eventual game-winning goal in Colorado’s 3-0 victory over Vancouver. Wolski, Milan Hejduk and Paul Stastny worked a bit of magic to set up the play, with the passing sequence actually going Hejduk-Wolski-Stastny-Hejduk-Stastny-Wolski.
