Brandon Saad found the back of the net on Thursday helping lift the Avalanche to a 4-2 road win over the St. Louis Blues. He put up a goal, a plus-1 rating, 2 PIMs and one shot.
St. Louis was attempting to clear the zone and Tyson Jost knocked the puck down with his glove only to recover it in the corner. He found Saad hanging out in front of the net and received a nice backhand pass. Saad manufactured a single-deke in close which was enough to open up Jordan Binnington and give the Avs a lead they wouldn't relinquish. He's up to fifteen goals and 24 points this year. His veteran presence will surely help the Avalanche in the post season.
Brandon Saad scored the third goal of the game in Colorado's 5-4 win over the Minnesota Wild on Monday. He finished the game with a goal, a plus-1 rating and one shot.
The goal was on the rebound as he was planted in the crease while a shot came in from the point. It was arguably a cross-checking penalty by Saad but the ref was right there and decided to let it go. He's up to 12 goals on the year and can be used in streaming situations due to Colorado's scoring upside every night.
Brandon Saad potted a goal in a losing effort as the Avalanche fell 5-4 in OT to the Ducks. He finished the game with a goal, an even-rating, two shots and one hit.
Saad was playing fundamental hockey on this one as he drifted through the slot and into the crease with his stick on the ice. Burakovsky made a nice cut-back in the corner and put it right on his stick for his 9th of the season. Saad is a viable streaming option with the Avalanche's ability to score nightly.
Brandon Saad scored the game tying goal on Sunday but the Avalanche came away with a 4-3 overtime loss to the Minnesota Wild. He finished the game with one goal, a minus-1 rating and two shots.
Saad took a pass from Nazem Kadri and was able to coral the rolling puck just in time for a shot that rang off the post and in. It's his fifth goal of the year and is on a four game point streak. If you gave up early on Saad it's time to get him back in your lineup. He's up to five goals and three assists in his first year as a member of the Avalanche.
Brandon Saad scored twice in Colorado's 7-3 victory over the visiting San Jose Sharks on Tuesday. He finished the game with two points, a plus one rating, two PIM's and three shots.
Saad's first goal came while he was camped out in front of the net while all eyes were on Makar, he made a one-two deke and slid it past Martin Jones. The second came on a tic-tac-toe where he was well positioned to fire a one-timer. That's number two and three for Saad. The Avalanche will want this to carry on after they acquired him from Chicago. He's up to three points (all goals) so far this season but isn't really producing anywhere else on the fantasy radar. Goal, assist and PPP upside is there but he isn't hitting or blocking shots and is currently -7.
