Porter\'s Goal Named Play Of The Week
Kevin Porter's overtime goal against the San Jose Sharks was named the Avalanche's "Play of the Week" after earning 64.46% of fan votes.

Porter's goal beat out tallies from Paul Stastny (18.89%) and Chris Stewart (16.65%) to earn the weekly honor.

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.
