The Colorado Avalanche might sit firmly in the West’s cellar, but they’re heeding Jean-Sebastien Giguere‘s request to not just roll over and die. They’ve now taken two of their last three thanks to Saturday’s 4-3 win against the Canucks, ending Vancouver’s four-game winning streak in the process.
Vancouver squandered 2-1 and 3-2 leads in the contest. P.A. Parenteau tied the contest 13 minutes into the third period and then Jan Hejda scored the game-winner with just eight seconds left.
Ultimately, this will likely just be a moral victory for the Avalanche and a forgettable setback for the Canucks. Colorado remains in last place in the West and merely hurt its chances for better odds in the draft lottery (temporarily). On the other hand, the Canucks still hold a healthy Northwest Division lead; while the Minnesota Wild have a game in hand, they still trail the Canucks by six points.
