Duchene Earns Play Of The Week
Center Matt Duchene earned Avalanche "Play of the Week" laurels for his goal against the Nashville Predators on Feb. 12

Duchene earned 37.49% of fan voting, topping a Philippe Dupuis tally against Columbus (34.38%) and a Kevin Porter goal that also came at Nashville (28.13%).

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.

Duchene’s Blast – 2/12 @ Nashville
Matt Duchene has many tricks in his bag, but on this play he broke out one that he rarely utilizes: a good old fashioned slap shot. Duchene took a feed from Brandon Yip at the blue line, skated into the left circle and unleashed a laser that eluded Nashville’s Pekka Rinne to give the Avs a 3-2 advantage.
