As the Colorado Avalanche played the Boston Bruins for the second time in less than a week, it was a battle of an AHL team against an NHL team.
The Avalanche came into tonight with eight Colorado Eagles in the lineup. Five out of the top-six have been sidelined with injuries and the earliest we can expect one back could be sometime this week with Val Nichushkin. The Avalanche were able to hold on for the most part for the first period, not allowing any goals. The second period is where the shutout ended. The Bruins were able to score two goals in the second and the third period to win the game 4-0.
