Galiardi Springs Jones – Oct. 12 @ Boston After gathering the puck in front of Boston’s bench, rookie T.J. Galiardi drew the attention of three Bruins. Somehow, the forward managed to get away from the crowd and made a centering pass to David Jones. Playing in his first game of the season, Jones skated in all alone against netminder Tuukka Rask and netted a short-handed tally.
Jones Powers Through – Oct. 13 @ Toronto David Jones picked up his second goal of the year on a nice individual effort against the Maple Leafs. After gaining control of the puck at his own blue line, Jones flew up the right wing and fought off both Tomas Kaberle and Viktor Stalberg before slipping a low shot past Joey MacDonald.
O’Reilly’s First NHL Tally – Oct. 15 @ Montreal Ryan O’Reilly’s first NHL goal couldn’t have come at a better time. With the Avs and Canadiens tied 2-2 in the third period, the rookie took a centering feed from David Jones and threw a shot on net that was stopped by Montreal netminder Carey Price. O’Reilly stuck with the play, picked up his own rebound and deposited it past Price for the game-winning goal.
