Shots on Goal: Avs Giguere Blanks Bruins, Rask
Jean-Seabsiten Giguere made the most of his first start of the season as he blanked the Boston Bruins Thursday night with a 2-0 shutout, his first over the B’s and 37th of his career.
Colorado took their up tempo game to the B’s in the first period out shooting them 14-10 and went into the locker room with a 1-0 lead after Ryan O’Reilly tipped an Andre Benoit shot from the point past Tuukka Rask.
Boston picked up the pace in the next two frames but was unable to generate any offense even though they out shot the Avs 15-6 and 14-9 respectively. Jiggy had an answer for every Boston offering and turned them all away.
Matt Duchene closed out the scoring with an empty-netter with 26 seconds to go.
