Avalanche Play Of The Week: Jan. 14-20

Vote For Your Favorite Play From The Past Week

Friday, 01.21.2011 / 1:14 PM / Features
By Colorado Avalanche
ColoradoAvalanche.com is again asking for your help in determining the Avalanche's "Play of the Week" each week during the regular season. At the end of the year, a bracket-style tournament will be held to determine, via fan voting, the Avalanche's "Play of the Year."
 
Milan Hejduk, John-Michael Liles and David Jones are this week's nominees.

Voting ends on Monday, Jan. 24 at 3:00 p.m. MT, so be sure to cast your ballot today!

Hejduk Picks The Corner – 1/14 vs. Minnesota
The Avalanche was already up on the Wild, 1-0, when Milan Hejduk doubled that lead following a nice little give-and-go with Paul Stastny. While the Avs were on a power play, Hejduk took the return pass from Stastny and put a quick, well-placed wrist shot past Minnesota netminder Anton Khudobin for the eventual game-winning goal.




Liles Connects – 1/18 vs. Vancouver
John-Michael Liles scored one of the Avalanche’s three power-play goals during a 4-3 overtime victory against Vancouver. After receiving a cross-ice pass from Milan Hejduk, Liles fired a wrist shot from the right circle that eluded Canucks netminder Roberto Luongo.




Jones’ Second OT Winner – 1/18 vs. Vancouver
David Jones netted his second overtime winner in the month of January to lead the Avs to a 4-3 win over the Canucks. With just over two minutes remaining in the extra session, Jones lunged after a Tomas Fleischmann centering feed and got off a shot that ended up being the decisive goal.
