Avalanche Notes

BARRIE COMES UP CLUTCH: Tyson Barrie's third-period tally against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday was the 15th game-winning goal of his career and his second of the 2017-18 campaign (Oct. 5 at NYR), which is tied for first among NHL defensemen this season. Barrie's 15 career game winners are also the most by a defenseman in franchise history.

HOME OPENERS: With Wednesday's victory over Boston, the Avalanche/Nordiques franchise improved to 26-8-4 all-time in home openers (.737). Colorado is 14-5-3 in home openers since moving to Denver in 1995, which includes a 12-4-2 mark at Pepsi Center.

FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING: Avalanche forward Alexander Kerfoot notched his first NHL goal in Wednesday's home opener against Boston. Defenseman Nikita Zadorov picked up his first tally in an Avalanche sweater with an empty-net marker in the third period against Anaheim on Friday.
