Colorado Avalanche, Calgary Flames: Avalanche Looking To Overcome Early 3-0 Deficit

The Colorado Avalanche will need to come back in the final two periods if they want their first season win against the Calgary Flames. The Flames burst out early as Paul Byron (17:54), Jarome Iginla (14:13), and Curtis Glencross (5:49) all scored on Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov.

Despite mustering 10 shots to the Flames' 7, the Avalanche have been shut out through the first period by goalie Miikka Kiprusoff. Calgary, which has averaged only 2.07 goals per game, sits in the bottom of the Northwest Division. The Avalanche, meanwhile, have already met their 3.12 goals per game quota.

The Avalanche figure to pull Varlomav in favor of goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere in the second period. Colorado made a similar move recently when Varlomav was struggling against the Detroit Red Wings. Daniel Winnik currently leads the Avalanche with two shots on the goal.
