February 10, 2010 - Thrashers at Avalanche

Crazy comeback. The Av's flipped their script for this one by coming back from a 3-1 deficit early in the 3rd period, to an OT win. The first image is of the celebration of the OT win, which was significant in a couple ways - it was the Av's first OT "sudden victory" win of the year, and was the fastest in franchise history, coming at :09 of the 5-minute period. Plus, it was awesome.

Colorado Avalanche defenseman Kyle Cumiskey is lifted into the air by teammate Scott Hannan as Chris Stewart (25) and Paul Stastny celebrate Cumiskey's game winner during a regular season game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Atlanta Thrashers at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. The Avalanche beat the Trashers 4-3, with the game winning goal coming 9 seconds into the sudden victory overtime period.

24 year old Paul Stastny is headed to the Olympics as part of the US olympic team.
