by Colorado Avalanche / Colorado Avalanche
Ryan O'Reilly's shootout winner against the Phoenix Coyotes was named the Avalanche's "Play of the Week" for the period of April 1-7.

O'Reilly earned 46.34% of the voting, beating out Mark Olver's tip-in tally at Dallas (31.71%) and Kevin Porter's goal against St. Louis (21.95%).

The play now automatically qualifies for Colorado’s year-end “Play of the Year” bracket-style tournament – to be determined by Avalanche fans. Be sure to check back each Friday during the season, as three new choices for the Avalanche’s “Play of the Week” will be posted for you to vote upon.
