Avalanche Vs. Canucks: Second Intermission Numbers

John-Michael Liles tied the game for Colorado early in the second period, but the Sedin twins scored for their first time in three games, breaking the tie and giving Vancouver a one goal lead at intermission once again.

Henrik Sedin threaded a pass to his brother in the crease and Daniel Sedin perfectly deflected the puck past Peter Budaj, who had no chance at making the save.

Both teams have had four power plays, with Colorado converting the only power play goal of the game so far. Even with all of the odd-man advantages, there have been few scoring chances for both teams. Colorado is actually outshooting the Canucks by a 17-14 margin.

Avalanche forward Cody McLeod is having a poor game tonight, being called for three of the four Colorado penalties. In fact, his six penalty minutes trump his 5:17 of ice time.

Colorado is in danger of losing their division lead, and the season tiebreaker with Vancouver, after holding it for only a single game. They will have to send the game to overtime at the very minimum to maintain the division lead heading into Thanksgiving night at Edmonton tomorrow.
