Craig Anderson lead the Avalanche to a shutout over the Edmonton Oilers last night, tying the teams best start in History at 9-1-2, tying most October wins for the Aves!

The Aves had one shot on goal in the first period but Milan Hejduk made it count scoring on a Shawn Horcoff turnover.

This goal was all Craig Anderson needed as he stopped all 25 shots to get his second shutout of the season.

The Aves would then find the goal again when Wojtek Wolski scored 9 minutes into the 3rd period. He also scored his 7th of the season when he was pulled down on his way to an open netter late in the third.

Colorado now has the most points in the NHL and are 5-1-2 on the road. The Avalanche have three more on this roadtrip.

The Avalanche have a chance to set a new October Team Wins Record tonight at division rival, Calgary. Calgary is 5-1-0 at home.

 

Game Note:

Both teams had one player out with the swine flu. Ladislav Smid of the Oilers left after nearly 20 minutes and was diagnosed later last night. Peter Budaj, Avalanche backup Goalie, was announced as having it earlier in the day and did not join the team on the four game road trip.
