Toyota Game Recap | Avalanche vs. Islanders 12/17/2018

August 24, 2019


So the Avs trying to make it two in a row
tonight against the Islanders. Not a ton of action in the first. Till this, Jordan Eberle
in front knuckle ball, his seventh of the year. One-Nothing. Yeah just look at that
the hops scott pitchion jump right there. Eberle jumps on it, man Jonny on the spot.
Puts them up one nothing. In the second two minutes in Avs back in the box keep your eye
on number 55 moving towards your near screen locked and loaded and that s a par. There
is the shot I was talking about. Jonny six-two two hundred and twenty seven pounds and he
gets all of that. Well over 100 mph just caught Varly by surprise. Five minutes later Avs
get a power play, big viking right in front just waits perfect. Kind of thought from this
goal the Avs were gonna take off and win this game nine to two. But it didn’t happen either
way what a beautiful tip by Landeskog congrats Tyson Barrie on tying Jonny Liles. Avs had
a four minute power play some good chances but the biggest highlight was this Tyson Barrie
Mikko Rantanen back on the horse Tyson saved the goal. Wow this is big all things point
in the Avs direction here cuz that one is in the net whooo. Gets back, what a back check
by mikko keeps us only down by one. Zekus no chance late power play for the Islanders
they were two for thirty four coming into tonight. This goal makes it two for four on
the night. Yeah not cool and it is a Landeskog clone look at how wide that’s going. What
a beautiful tipin. No chance for Varly or any other goal tender. Nice goal. Third period
desperate hockey club at this point gotta pull Varlamov go for the six on five and the
empty netter inevitable. It just typifies the night, nathan MacKinnon just whiffs on
the pass they were just a hair unsharp tonight.
