Matt Duchene Scores, Ties Game At Two Goals Apiece

Matt Duchene’s first period goal was rescored as a Kevin Shattenkirk score, but that didn’t stop him from tying the game up with an undeniable goal in the beginning of the second period. Duchene converted some great work behind the net from Brandon Yip and David Jones into a rebound shot past a sprawling Martin Gerber. With a goal and assist in the game, Duchene now has 20 points on the season.

A series of penalties slowed down the action during the second period, but the Avalanche still managed 17 shots in the period. They have now outshot the Oilers 28-11 in the game.

After his miserable first period, Ryan Wilson didn’t perform much better in the second. Even though he only saw three minutes of ice time, he was called for a tripping penalty that the Avalanche eventually killed off. Wilson’s 6:56 of ice time is less than half of any other defensemen, including Kyle Quincey (who is playing in his first game since returning from a concussion).
