Miles Wooden could have ended it for the Avs, however Georgie was completely the hero of extra time. Bailed them out time and time once more. Absolute unit.#GoAvsGo #9sports

Avalanche Eternally @citchmook

Miles Wooden. Time beyond regulation winner. What a comeback victory.

Alexandar Georgiev added 22 saves for the Avs within the win.

It was fairly the night time for hockey followers on the whole, because the night time’s solely different sport—a New York Rangers’ 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes—additionally went to extra time. It wasn’t till the second interval of additional time that Vincent Trocheck ended the sport on the ability play, giving the Rangers a 2-0 benefit within the sequence.

The Avs solely went up 1-0 on this sequence, however did so on the street, stealing the home-ice benefit within the course of.
