Avs Win Round One 4-2

By  | 

Jose Theodore and the Colorado Avalanche withstood another onslaught from the relentless Minnesota Wild for a series-clinching 2-1 win Saturday night.

Theodore stopped 34 shots, including a glove save off Kim Johnsson's shot with 21 seconds left and the Avs took the series in six games.

The Wild won their first division crown this season but Minnesota held a lead in the series for only 4 minutes, 31 seconds out of a possible 384:23, and not a single second on this night.

With an extra attacker over the final minute, Minnesota accidentally sent seven men onto the ice for the final face-off on the right circle in the Avalanche end before Aaron Voros was shooed back to the bench, and the Wild never managed a shot.
