I went to the Colorado Avalanche game this evening and they made it interesting. Carrying a 3 - 0 lead into the 18th minute in the 3rd Period, after surviving a Blue Jacket 5 - 3 powerplay, they gave up two quick goals to Rick Nash and the Columbus Blue Jackets made it interesting down to the end. They held on to win 3-2.
It was an exciting game with some hard hits, a good fight, and Paul Stastny got a goal to extend his scoring streak to 13 games. In doing that, Stastny became the third rookie ever to have at least a 13 game scoring streak. The other two, his dad and uncle.
The only other disappointment was that Joe Sakic couldn't continue his scoring streak, ending it at 12.
I think the best hit tonight when Ian Laperriere took out Nash along the boards. He just picked him up and put Nash on his back.
This is a good and needed win as the Avs head out on a 11 day road trip.
