ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) It was one of the best days of Pavel Francouz's life.
Francouz finalized a $4 million, two-year contract extension with Colorado, and then made 26 saves to record his first NHL shutout in the Avalanche's 1-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.
"A lot of good stuff happened to me today," Francouz said. "It is a day to remember and a great feeling for use. I have to thank the guys because they played really well in front of me today. They blocked a lot of shots, and they were desperately trying to get the shutout for me."
