He is 54-27-11, the second-most wins in his first 100 games in Stars/Minnesota North Stars history behind Ed Belfour (60)

Evan Rodrigues' shootout tally was the only time a puck found the net as the Avalanche blanked the Islanders, 1-0. Last week, he scored his 60th NHL when he returned to the lineup following an injury.
