Johnson Earns Play Of The Week
Defenseman Erik Johnson earned Avalanche "Play of the Week" laurels for his goal against the St. Louis Blues on Feb. 22.

Johnson earned 46.90% of fan voting, beating out a nice Matt Duchene pass against Edmonton (30.34%) and a Milan Hejduk goal against the Blues (22.76%).

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.

Johnson’s Big Tally – 2/22 @ St. Louis
Only days after being acquired from the Blues in a trade, new Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson was back in St. Louis, playing against his old team. Johnson scored his first goal as an Av, netting the go-ahead tally at the 14:54 mark of the third period. With St. Louis forward BJ Crombeen draped all over him, the defenseman grabbed a loose puck and fired a wrister from the top of the left circle that found the back of net.
