“We weren’t expecting exactly what we got,” said Captain Mario Tremblay. He continued, “It’s not a secret Anaheim has built a tough team and that is how they intend to win games. They want to battle every single shift. We were prepared and I think we handled ourselves just fine”.


It took extra time for the Colorado Rockies to come out victorious. In the end, it was their game the entire way. Anaheim provided the league's best power play with 16 attempts at the man advantage. The Rockies capitalized on only three. It would be the only three they needed to secure the victory. Colorado outshot their opponent 34-21. Newly acquired net minder Tim Cheveldae stopped 31 of 34. He should have been named a star. Not one goal allowed at even strength.


This is the 4th time in 12 games that Colorado have been forced into the extra frame. The Rockies have shown their championship pedigree and have come out with two victories and two draws in those four games.


Their next test will be against the LA Kings (5-5-2) in Hollywood this evening.
