Avalanche Win Finale 4-3 OT

The Avalanche sent Adam Foote off in style today as the good guys knocked off the Oilers in OT. With the win, the Avalanche moved to within 29 points of the 8th and final playoff spot. Not sure they have enough time to get back into the race, though...

I wasn't supposed to be doing the recap tonight and didn't get a chance to watch the game. But, Derek appears to be AWOL so you get my non-expert, replay-free analysis. David Jones scored in overtime to give the Avs the win. It was his 27th goal of the season, tying him with Matt Duchene for the team lead. It was also his 4th GWG of the season, moving him ahead of Kevin Porter, Paul Stastny and Fucking Chris Stewart for the team lead in that category. Matt Duchene had 2 assists to finish the season with a team-high 67 points (the 2nd-lowest leading point total in Avalanche history). Adam Foote played the entire game and was awarded the #1 star for his trouble (Budaj: robbed again!). David Koci had 7 (seven!) 3rd period shifts on his way to 15:49 of ice time. Seriously, why didn't someone think of doing that sooner? Meanwhile, Jonas Holos led all players in ice time and mispronounced names.

Does that about cover it?
