Avs Player Grades from 5-0 Shutout over Arizona (+)
“I was standin’ on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see…”
Jack Johnson: B – Love the post-whistle tussles with him. Usually, the other teams end up on the ground. He hustled to the puck in his own zone and took the man out of it a few times.
Erik Johnson: A – Really strong game with two shots on net, five hits, three blocked shots and a plus one. He’s among the NHL leaders in plus-minus and having a comeback-player-of-the-year kind of season so far.
Devon Toews: B+ – When the defensive group holds the opposing team to 20 shots, it’s a solid night for everyone. Toews played how Toews always plays. Consistent and smart.
