What's the secret to the Colorado Avalanche's early season success?
On Monday night in Pittsburgh it was Giguere in net, and he was standing tall against a non-stop barrage of shots from the Penguins. He had to make a couple of spectacular saves, including this glove save against Chris Kunitz on a two-on-one late in the third period.
First, that's a great saucer pass from Crosby to drop it right onto Kunitz's blade. But that save ... my goodness. It' was that sort of night for Giguere and the Avalanche.
Giguere ended up stopping all 34 shots he faced in a 1-0 win for the Avalanche in a game they were absolutely dominated in at even-strength, only to win because of their great penalty killing and goaltending.
