The Colorado Avalanche won their seventh consecutive game in a 3-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks. How did the players grade out?
Let's find out!
Mark Barberio (B-) - I didn't notice him a whole bunch today but I did see he was active in keeping pucks alive in the offensive zone and putting them in competitive situations. That's an important change as too often he has been content dumping pucks into a corner and moving on. I liked what I saw and the numbers agree.
Jonathan Bernier (A) - What more could you want from this guy? He's stepped in and been incredible. His stick save on Kesler in the second period that immediately preceded the MacKinnon goal will be the Avalanche save of the year.
Gabriel Bourque (C) – He's made himself useful these last few games and he's gotten after it, especially on the penalty kill where he continues to siphon minutes from other guys. He's not been great or anything but merely passable is just fine for his role.
