Girard for the first goal of the game! I love that the Colorado Avalanche were the first to score on Calgary, it sets the team mentality for the game. Having. Girard’s goal was absolutely beautiful! The puck ricocheted off the post and Girard, from a distance, put the Colorado Avalanche in the lead!
How do you express that feeling when the goal buzzard rings for your team’s goal? That is a special feeling and all you can do is stand up and scream when it sounds. It is a sense of pride for the Colorado Avalanche. That’s my team!
