Colorado Avalanche Vs. Calgary Flames: Avalanche Down 4-1, Looking For 3rd Period Comeback

After falling behind 3-0 in the first period, the Colorado Avalanche still need a three goal comeback to find their first win in the Northwest Conference tonight.

Ten minutes into in the second period, Lee Stempniak (10:24) scored his third goal of season, giving a 4-0 lead to the Calgary Flames and a fourth goal allowed to goalie Semyon Varlamov.

The Avalanche finally got on the board with under seven minutes remaining when Milan Hejduk scored an unassisted goal with his fourth shot of the game -- this one a 38 ft. wristshot -- giving him seven goals total on the season.

Colorado continues to out-shot the Calgary Flames through the first two periods, taking 13 shots to the Flames' 9, for a total of 23 shots to 16. Daniel Winnik leads the Avalanche into the final period with five shots, but no goals to his credit. Rene Bourque, who leads the Flames in goals this year, has three shots and no goals so far.
