The Colorado Avalanche topped the Arizona Coyotes 5-2 in yet another home win.

Sven Andrighetto (B) – No points but he had three shots on goal and two hits to go along with standing up for himself when OEL took some liberties. The little guy's heart is just what the doctor ordered for this team.

Tyson Barrie (A) – Two points and great at even strength. He helped generate another power play goal, the seventh straight game in which the Avs have scored one. He's handled the ascension to the top pairing significantly better than expected. He had one turnover that nearly turned into an AZ goal that was egregious but he got bailed out.

Jonathan Bernier (C+) – Two goals against on just 24 shots wasn't great and being injured again is discouraging. The first goal against is one he would love to have back. No grade for Varly below, who had just four saves in relief.

Gabriel Bourque (D) – Plenty of games this year the fourth line has been passable, chewing up ice time and making few mistakes along the way. Not so today as they got beaten up and helped Arizona climb back into the game in the second period. Bourque wasn't good on the PK or at even strength tonight. He has to be inching his way closer to a scratch.
