The three shooters accounted for 40 percent of the total shots on goal, but Ryan Miller was perfect in the net. Forsberg had the greatest opportunity with just over 19 minute of ice time. He has scored in his last two efforts although it took five shots against the Avalanche Saturday night to sink one goal.
