Nate Guenin was supported by his teammates after he committed a brutal turnover in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over Dallas.
He gave the puck away to Ales Hemsky, who set up Erik Cole to give the Stars a 2-0 lead at the time. The Avalanche rallied in the third and won the game in a shootout. "Not just [goalie Semyon Varlamov], all the players on the team (were supportive) of Nate," coach Patrick Roy said. "Nate works so hard, blocking shots and playing important minutes with Tyson Barrie ... tougher for him because he's a defensive defenseman and doesn't have the opportunity to go and get a big goal for us. But his teammates did it for him." Feb 5 - 11:48 AM
