Craig Anderson has apparently reaggravated his groin for the second time on Vancouver ice. After making a return last Friday against the New York Rangers, and appearing healthy, Anderson is sitting on the bench. There is no word on the severity of Anderson’s injury, or whether not he will be available tomorrow night against Edmonton.
Minutes after Peter Budaj made a spectacular save off the bench, the Avalanche power play struck back. Kevin Shattenkirk made a cross ice pass from the point and John-Michael Liles converted the shot into a goal past Roberto Luongo for his fourth goal of the season.
