O\'Reilly Earns Play Of The Week Honors
Ryan O'Reilly's shootout winner against the Phoenix Coyotes was named the Avalanche's "Play of the Week" for the period of April 1-7.

O'Reilly earned 46.34% of the voting, beating out Mark Olver's tip-in tally at Dallas (31.71%) and Kevin Porter's goal against St. Louis (21.95%).

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.

O’Reilly Leads The Way – 4/1 @ Phoenix
Ryan O’Reilly put the team on his back against Phoenix, scoring the game-tying goal late in regulation and then netting the shootout winner. On his shootout attempt, O’Reilly picked up speed and came straight at Phoenix goalie Ilya Bryzgalov before snapping a shot between the netminder’s legs.
