I was away for the past two games, so I missed the Minnesota game completely and saw the last two periods of the Minnesota game.
Can't recap much, but I can give the three stars for the Minnesota game.
Three Stars of the Game
1. Paul Stastny (Three point night, including two goals in the second, and he has now registered 100 points in 99 games.)
2. Peter Budaj (Made some big saves and the only goals he let up were on the powerplay)
3. Ryan Smyth (He's getting his scoring touch going and he had an assist.)
The Avs are off until Friday, when they will play Dallas. The Avs beat Dallas earlier this season and hopefully, we can continue our streak on the road. This is the first game of four away from the Pepsi Center. Expect Jose Theodore in net.
The Avs are now in FIRST PLACE in the Northwest Division, SECOND in the Western Conference, and FOUTH in the NHL. BEAUTIFUL start!
