Here's the NHL.com game recap from last night. Just check out that scoring summary!

The Avs traded Anderson to Ottawa in February, and he played well enough to earn a four-year deal with the Senators. But after spotting the Senators an early lead when Milan Michalek scored a power-play goal 4:05 into the game, the Avs ran off seven unanswered goals against their former goaltender while outshooting Ottawa 39-16. Colorado won its third road game in four days -- the Avs won 1-0 in Boston on Monday afternoon and 3-2 at Columbus on Wednesday night.

There is no denying that  Colorado played well last night.

Despite having played the previous night in Columbus the Avalanche showed no sign of fatigue scoring a power-play and a short-handed goal to make it 5-1 before the third period was even five minutes old.

Colorado added two more power-play goals to make it 7-1 late in the game.

If you are in Brampton, you might want to go to the OHL game Sunday.

The Brampton Battalion is hoping a couple of former stars might be the extra motivation they need when they host the Windsor Spitfires in Ontario Hockey League action at the Powerade Centre on Sunday afternoon.

The Troops are expected to have  Matt Duchene and Jay McClement on hand for the contest.

Both Duchene and McClemenet are currently playing with the National Hockey League’s Colorado Avalanche and will be in Toronto for a Monday night contest with the Maple Leafs.

Derek Boogaard's family can now begin to try to heal.

The brother of former NHL strongman Derek Boogaard pleaded guilty Thursday to a gross misdemeanor in his brother's overdose death, admitting to what his attorney called "an error of judgment" in destroying evidence in the case.


Aaron Boogaard reached a plea deal in Hennepin County that lets him walk free with a stayed six-month sentence, plus probation and community service.
