Dustin is doing a recap later, but wanted to get something up quickly before going to bed. In my preview, I said this was a big test for the Avs and a bigger test for Craig Anderson.
As much as this is a test for the Avs as a team, this is a huge test for Andy. Chances are he will need to outplay Mikka Kiprussoff tonight in order to give Colorado team an opportunity to win. This is what #1 goalies do, and I hope he's up to the task. I'm not a huge fan of hyperbole, but I can't shake the feeling that, when all is said and done, this game is going to stand out as a vitally important game for the Avalanche...one way or another.
Craig Anderson, I owe you a beer. That was a clutch performance. HUGE win.
