Raycroft Earns Play of the Week Honors

by ColoradoAvalanche.com - Official Site of the Colorado Avalanche / Colorado Avalanche
Andrew Raycroft's stop on Chicago's Patrick Sharp was named the Avalanche's "Play of the Week" for the Jan. 2-8 time period. The big save by Raycroft received 54.02% of fan voting.


The goaltender beat out a tally from Wojtek Wolski in that same Jan. 8 matchup against the Blackhawks (23.68%) and another Wolski tally off a feed from Milan Hejduk on Jan. 6 against Nashville (22.29%).

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.

Raycroft Stones Sharpt - 1/8 vs. Chicago
Andrew Raycroft’s stop on Patrick Sharp during the second period of Colorado’s 2-1 win may have been the best of his career-high 43-save performance. Chicago’s Dustin Byfuglien circled behind the net before tossing a pass out front to an open Sharp. Raycroft quickly moved back into position and made a big stop with his left pad to keep the game tied 1-1.
