Auld vs. Aebischer

Like their divisional rivals, the Vancouver Canucks, the Colorado Avalanche have had to answer questions regarding their goaltending for much of the season. It wasn't too long ago that Avs GM Pierre Lacroix called up Vitaliy Kolesnik and created a three-goalie controversy with Kolesnik, Peter Budaj and David Aebischer. That's not so much the case anymore as the Avs have been hot - they are 8-2-1 in their January games - thanks in large part to the play of David "No Longer The Swiss Miss" Aebischer.

On the other hand, the Canucks are on a three-game losing skid, though that was preceeded by a run of seven wins in eight games. Alex Auld was in net for all but one of those games.

Here are some stats between Aebischer and Auld to chew on before tonight's game between the Canucks and the Avs:
