Eagles Take Series Lead After OT Thriller

Avs prospects Nantel, Boikov contribute to the victory

by Ryan Boulding @rboulding / ColoradoAvalanche.com

LOVELAND, Colo.--The Colorado Eagles entered Wednesday's Western Conference Finals matchup against the visiting Toledo Walleye looking to take a series lead, and Colorado Avalanche prospects Sergei Boikov, Julien Nantel and Mason Geertsen wanted to continue contributing to their team's success.

Both things happened at Budweiser Events Center as the home team took a 2-1 advantage in the round after winning 4-3 in overtime.

"It was a hard-fought game. I thought we were doing well the whole game," Geertsen said of the victory. "We dominated, I thought, and then they got some lucky bounces and some power-play goals. Then overtime came and happened and we got her done. We finished her off, and it doesn't matter how you win as long as you win."
