Shatty scores again
Kevin Shattenkirk scored once again for the Colorado Avalanche in a 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers. With the loss, the team still remains tied with Vancouver for the Northwest division lead. This was Shattenkirk's third goal of the season and seventh point in 11 games since being called up. With this ,it looks like Shatty will stick with the big club along with former Terrier Brandon Yip who has 10 points in 20 games so far this season and had an assist in this one.
Shatty's goal was one which he came swooping from the left of the Edmonton goalie(Martin Gerber) and stuffed it past his pad short side. It was a critical goal in the game as the Avalanche fell behind 2-0 quickly and Shatty's goal got them back in the game before the intermission and could stolen a point for the team if it were not for a last second Taylor Hall goal.
Both Zach Cohen and Colby Cohen remain on the AHL affiliate Lake Erie Monsters putting up unimpressive numbers thus far.
Also USCHO.com has an article on what the Terriers should be thankful for this Thanksgiving along with the rest of Hockey East and some projections for this coming weekend's games.
UPDATE- Shatty was the number two star in the 11/27 7-4 win over the Minnesota Wild at the Pepsi Center in Colorado. Shatty had another goal and two assists and is quickly making a name for himself in the NHL.
