Avalanche crush Capitals as Semyon Varlamov stones former employers
Despite some nerves, he also had a good time in his first game against them.
“I got too excited to play against my old team,” said Varlamov, who was drafted by Washington in 2006 and traded to Colorado in 2011.
“That’s why I think I am too nervous. In the warmups, my legs were shaking. The whole first period my legs were shaking. But after the first period, I feel so much better.”
It is the first time the Avalanche franchise is 5-0 since the 1994-95 season when the team was the Quebec Nordiques.
“We take it one day at a time and just say, ‘Why not? Why not us?’” Roy said of Colorado’s early success. “We’re working hard every day. We’re humble. We know we’re playing against good teams.”
“I don’t want to start comparing,” he said, “but at the same time, he’s playing outstanding. Both goalies have been, ‘Wow’, for us. What I like about Varly is he’s always under control.”
Rookie Nathan MacKinnon added his first NHL goal and an assist, and Matt Duchene and Jamie McGinn also scored for Colorado. Paul Stastny earned two assists, including his 400th NHL point as Colorado went 3-0 on a trip that included stops at Toronto and Boston.
“It starts in our end. We’ve got to be stronger. We’ve got to make sure pucks get out,” Fehr said. “I think we need to want the puck a little bit more.”
