Avalanche Vs. Blackhawks Score Update: Colorado And Chicago End First Period In Scoreless Tie

The Colorado Avalanche are gunning to hand the Chicago Blackhawks their sixth straight loss tonight at the Pepsi Center, but after one period, the two teams are tied at zero. Each side fired nine shots on target in the first period, but goaltenders Ray Emery and Jean-Sebastien Giguere kept points off the board.

Colorado had a quality goal scoring opportunity just before the period expired, but Chuck Kobasew's shot flew wide of the net.

There was just one penalty in the first period, a two-minute minor called on Colorado's Erik Johnson for cross-checking Chicago's Michael Frolik.

Colorado also enters the game as losers of five straight. At 26-25-3, the Avalanche are third in Northwest Division.
