The Avalanche defeated the Stars 2-1 last night with Peter Budaj bettering former Avalanche Andrew Raycroft between the pipes. It's the last home game of the preseason; the next time the Avs will be in Denver will be opening night on October 7th. (And the next time after that will be the MHH After Hours game, for which discounted tickets are available)

As for the game, Paul Stastny scored both goals for the Avalanche, one being the first Avalanche PP goal of the preseason. Patrick Bordeleau had yet another fight. Jonas Holos had no PP ice time while Colby Cohen had over 5 minutes. Ryan Stoa didn't register a shot on net and Mark Olver had 4 shots. Kyle Cumiskey had 23 minutes of (presumably) blazing fast ice time in his preseason debut.
