November 18, 2008 - Peter Budaj is the only member of the Colorado Avalanche to show up for a game in Calgary. Budaj faces 50 shots and turns away 47 of them (a career high). The anemic Avs manage just 23. Despite getting peppered with shots, Budaj keeps his team in the game and the score is tied at 1 midway through the third. Unfortunately, Adrian Aucoin blasted a slapshot past Budaj to make it 2-1 and the Flames added two very late goals - an empty netter and then a PP goal after Ryan Smyth was tossed for unsportsmanlike conduct - to seal the victory.
