Avs Trending Up, Important Week Ahead
Avs Trending for the Playoffs
Well as I write this right now on February 13th in the afternoon, the Avs are 2 points out of the final playoff spot, and 5 points back from 6th. It is definitely doable and with Matt Duchene finally returning to practice, highly probable. THe Avs have some important games coming up that could make the world of a difference. First let us look back on the last few games and what the Avs were able to do!
Well Fridays home game against the Hurricanes had quite the dramatics for the Avs who were able to come up with two huge points. J.S. Giguere had a decent game and the Avs got goals from Landeskog, Hejduk, and Stastny, but the biggest goal came from Ryan O'Reilly. With overtime all but certain, O'Reilly, nicknamed The Factor, stripped the puck from a Hurricane player and fired a slap shot just inside the blue line that beat both Cam Ward and the clock. The time on the clock said 1.4 seconds, and the scoreboard read 4-3 Avs. It was quite the goal that I am sure Ward would want back, but The Factor deserved one after being robbed by Ward on numerous other chances. Just see for yourself what great timing O'Reilly had!
