Avs get their 2nd 6 game win streak of the young season

10 out of the 13 games they have played this season the Colorado Avalanche have scored the first goal of the game. Of those 10 times they scored first they have won every game. It started off with a great cerimony honoring Adam foote, and raising his banner to the rafters.

Great to see that collection of names and #s retierd by the Avalanche.  The game started off very physical part way through the first period there were 2 fights. Seems that the team was fired up seeing all those old highlights of foote pushing a guy over.  Landeskog has been impressive of late. He has scored 5 goals in his last 7 games he has played. He seems to be having really good luck taking a big slap shot coming down the side boards, and tricking or fooling or just plain over powering the goalie. Hope he can keep that up. Tanguay went down with an apparent knee injury part way through the 2nd period and did not return. After the injury coach Patrick Roy moved Macckinon up to line 2 with landeskog and stastny, and there playing Right wing he scored the 1st game winning goal of his NHL career. It was a great back hander off a rebound. Hopefully Tanguay is all right, I will post more updates on his health as i hear them reported. On the bright side injury wise Mcgine should be back as soon as the next game on wednessday night. Jiggy is now 4-0 for the first time ever. he has only allowed 3 total goals all year against him now. Great start for the former Stanly Cup champion.
