Stastny\'s Goal Named Play Of The Week
Paul Stastny's diving tally against the Columbus Blue Jackets was named the Avalanche's "Play of the Week" after coming away with 49.44% of fan votes.

The assistant captain's goal beat out Peter Budaj's glove save on Rick Nash (28.89%) and David Van Der Gulik's first career tally (21.67%).

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.

Stastny’s Diving Tally – 10/30 vs. Columbus
Just 44 seconds after David Liffiton gave the Avalanche a 3-0 lead over Columbus with his first NHL goal, Paul Stastny added to the cushion on a strong individual effort. Stastny received a pass from Chris Stewart behind the Blue Jackets’ net and circled around in front, where he was met by defenseman Kris Russell. Even though Columbus Russell took out his legs, Stastny was able to toss a backhander past Steve Mason for his fifth goal of the season.
