Avalanche Play Of The Week: Jan. 28-Feb. 3 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."
Kevin Porter, Milan Hejduk and Craig Anderson are this week's nominees.

Voting ends on Monday, Feb. 7 at 3:00 p.m. MT, so be sure to cast your ballot today!

Porter Sets Up Hejduk – 2/3 vs. Minnesota
Kevin Porter made a nice passing play to draw the primary assist on Milan Hejduk’s first of two goals against the Wild. During a 2-on-1 rush, Porter threaded a feed by Minnesota defenseman Nick Schultz over to Hejduk, who deposited the puck past the outstretched left pad of Jose Theodore.

Hejduk Buries Another – 2/3 vs. Minnesota
Milan Hejduk scored his second goal of the night against Minnesota just 45 seconds into the third period. After Adam Foote held the puck in the zone at the blue line and fired a shot wide, Chris Stewart corralled the rebound and sent a pass over to Hejduk, who put a wrister into the back of the net.

Andy Keeps It Close – 2/3 vs. Minnesota
The Wild had already jumped out to a 2-0 lead over the Avalanche just 1:01 into the game, and it could have quickly been a three-goal contest if not for Craig Anderson. Seconds after Minnesota’s second goal, Wild forward Pierre-Marc Bouchard slipped behind the Avalanche defense and skated in on a breakaway, but his attempt was turned aside by Anderson.
