Saturday afternoon marked a cold and chilly day for the home crowd of Colorado…and not because of the below-freezing temperatures. Kevin Bieksa, of the Vancouver Canucks, denied a victory from the Colorado Avalanche with a spectacular diving save and a shifty shot…all within 15 seconds. With about 49.7 seconds on the clock of the 3rd period of a 2-1 game, Bieksa made a diving save to stop T.J. Galiardi’s back-hand shot from center line. With aboiut 34.7 seconds on the clock, Bieksa netted his 5th goal of the season on a wrist shot that tied the game at the end of regulation. The Canucks eventually won 1-0 on a shoot out.

Check out the extra effort by Bieksa.

Byron Bitz' Debut

Byron Bitz fired one shot in over eight minutes against the Avalanche on Sunday but contributed in the first period with a number of big hits and a solid fight with Cody McLeod.
