Well, it wasn’t perfect, but the Avs looked more like the October version, not the November version, which is a good thing heading into December.
  • It probably not a coincidence that Anderson also looked like the October version, instead of the November version.  A well deserved shutout, especially with huge stops on Foster and Velliuex in the 3rd period.
  • With 6 goals - all of the sudden, Duchene is tied for 4th place in goal scoring with Stasnty and Svatos.
  • Stewart looked a lot like Jones tonight.  We know Stewey is capable - now he needs to figure out how to get it done nearly every night.
  • Svatos has no business on a top line.  He simply can’t make a pass.
  • There is no question in my mind that Galiardi is our best (skating) penalty killer.  He also made wonderful decision and pass to McLeod (who hit the crossbar) on a 2 on 1 and nifty, unselfish pass to Wolski for the empty net goal.
  • BTW - anyone else think the Wolski’s first attempt (and miss) at the empty net was a little selfish?
  • I’m ready to say it -- Tucker’s October performance was an aberration   - he looks back to being the ineffective, overpaid hockey player we knew and complained about last year.

We’ve got Florida next -- if you haven’t seen this debacle yet, you need to:
