This game was such a dud that I put off posting an entry about it for a week! 1-0 win for the Wild, who played a very sloppy game. No real finesse, just dump the puck and then see who comes up with it in front of the goal. Av's played to the same level, but did not get any good bounces.
I chose the following picture because it was literally the only play of consequence in the whole game, and I was glad to have an image. The puck is in the shot floating over the glove of goalie Peter Budaj. Most of my edit is guys standing around waiting for a faceoff to happen (these can be good images, but typically aren't 90% of my edit).
Colorado Avalanche goalie Peter Budaj (31) can't stop a shot by Minnesota Wild right wing Antti Miettinen (20) during a regular season game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Minnesota Wild at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. The first-period goal proved to be the game-winner.
Thanks for visiting.
