Mueller getting back on track after head injury

DENVER (AP) - Peter Mueller was in the spotlight and at long last the glare didn't make his head hurt.

The Colorado Avalanche forward scored twice in a 4-3 overtime win over Florida on Wednesday night, his first goals since returning last week from concussion symptoms that have plagued him for nearly two years.

These days, Mueller wears bigger shoulder pads along with a custom-fitted helmet that loops around his ears to better cushion his head and neck. He also dons a tinted visor that cuts down on the glare from the arena lights, which at one point really affected him.

Not as much anymore as he's starting to feel like himself again.

Mueller certainly showed flashes of his offensive flair on Wednesday with two nifty scores and an assist.
