ColoradoAvalanche.com is offering fans a new way to get in the game this year. Your voice will be heard in selecting Colorado’s “Play of the Week” each week during the season.
We’ll offer up three choices, and you choose the top play by voting on the poll below or on the homepage of ColoradoAvalanche.com. At the end of the season, a bracket-style tournament will be held to determine – once again, through fan voting – the Avalanche’s “Play of the Year”.
Check out this week’s three nominees, and be sure to vote for your favorite by Monday at 12:00 p.m. MT.
Smyth Screens for Liles – 11/2 vs. San Jose After breaking hard into the offensive zone, Avalanche defenseman John-Michael Liles took a pass from Milan Hejduk and – using Ryan Smyth’s screen – wristed a nicely placed shot past San Jose netminder Evgeni Nabokov.
McCormick Hits Sopel – 11/3 at Chicago Cody McCormick displayed the type of grit he brings to the Avalanche’s lineup when he put a big hit on Chicago defenseman Brent Sopel late in the first period of their Nov. 3 matchup.
Budaj Denies Kane - 11/3 at Chicago After gathering a cross-ice feed from Martin Havlat, Chicago forward Patrick Kane found himself all alone just to the left of Avalanche netminder Peter Budaj. Despite having a seemingly open net, Kane was robbed by Budaj, who moved right-to-left quick enough to make the stop.
