The Colorado Avalanche got a point tonight in another up & down game. With the Nashville Predators in town for a pre-Thanksgiving game, the Avs decided to take the first period to work on tomorrow’s menu.
Just 3 minutes into the period the Preds were on the power play and made good on it for the 6th game in a row. Mere minutes later the Preds put a second one in the net and coach Joe Sacco decided he needed to calm down his boys and took a time out.
The second started off better for the Avs as Milan Hejduk fed the puck to Ryan Wilson who skated in and wristed it home at 3:39. Just past the halfway mark with the Avs on a 4 minute PP, David Jones made a fantastic cross-ice pass to Milan Hejduk to tie the game. Minutes later Chris Stewart took all the Preds with him on the wing leaving Marek Svatos wide open. Stewart made a perfect pass and Svatos sent it home. But the Avs couldn’t hold the lead, even for the period, and Shea Weber sent a slap shot by Craig Anderson at 18:07.
