The Colorado Avalanche isn't used to playing games on a Monday afternoon, but looked right at home again in winning for the seventh consecutive time, on Martin Luther King Day. The final from the Pepsi Center was 3-1, over the Anaheim Ducks.

The Avs took a 3-1 lead with 19.6 seconds left in the second period, on Colin Wilson's 99th career goal. Alexander Kerfoot made the play happen, with a slippery little cross pass from the half-wall into the slot. Wilson buried the puck top shelf past veteran Ryan Miller, and how was Wilson's name announced to the crowd?

From the voice of Tom Hanks, of course, from the movie "Castaway."
