Svatos Gains Play of Week Honors
Marek Svatos notched his first "Play of the Week" honor of the year with this shootout goal against Los Angeles' Erik Ersberg.

Svatos' goal (49.63%) beat out Ian Laperriere's tip-in tally against Anaheim (21.13%) and Ryan Smyth's power-play marker versus St. Louis (29.24%).

The play now automatically qualifies for Colorado’s year-end “Play of the Year” bracket-style tournament – to be determined by Avalanche fans.

Be sure to check back each Friday during the season, as three new choices for the Avalanche’s “Play of the Week” will be posted for you to vote upon.

Svatos' Shootout Winner - 11/22 at Los Angeles
On Colorado’s first shootout attempt against the Kings, Svatos made a nice move against netminder Erik Ersberg before tucking a low backhand attempt between his legs. The goal helped to give the Avs their 8th straight shootout victory.
