The Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL - January 28th, 2014

Varly has some fire in him.

When Semyon Varlamov allowed a goal to Tyler Seguin late in the second period to tie the game at 3-3, the Colorado Avalanche goaltender didn't dwell on it. Instead, he regrouped.

Varlamov made 13 of his 41 saves in the third period, including several more against Seguin and one at close range from Erik Cole to lead the Colorado Avalanche to a 4-3 win against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on Monday.

"I was not happy about the third goal. That was my goal," Varlamov said. "I tried to regroup for myself and get ready for the third period."

Eyes on the Prize takes a look at PA Parenteau.

Is Parenteau an upgrade over Bourque and Briere? Yes. Is he an offensive upgrade overall? Yes. Does he fill a need for the Montreal Canadiens? It depends.

Colorado is not going to be interested in Bourque or Briere. Don't fool yourself into thinking either of those guys are going to net a top-6 forward return at this stage. Trading for Parenteau does mean that you need to get rid of at least one of those two though, so any deal may be contingent on another trade.

Brodeur didn't like the ice but liked everything before the outdoor game. (Video of game starts automatically)

Peter DeBoer said giving goalie Martin Brodeur the starting nod in the New Jersey Devils’ first outdoor game was simply the right thing to do.

Pulling the struggling future Hall of Famer after two periods might have been an even better decision by the coach.

Brodeur was done in by multiple deflections and too many odd-man rushes Sunday against the New York Rangers outside in the cold and snow at Yankee Stadium. In all, he gave up six goals on 21 shots in 40 minutes of the Devils’ 7-3 loss.

“The whole atmosphere of this event, the mixed fans in the building, the aura of playing at Yankee Stadium, the whole thing was unbelievable — besides the hockey game,” the 41-year-old Brodeur said.
