The following night the Eagles fared much better in a 5-0 win over San Jose including a 23 save shutout for Justus Annunen and goals from all of Jean-Luc Foudy, Sampo Ranta, Martin Kaut and Alex Beaucage. What a nice note to enter their holiday break on and give the Avalanche performances to mull over as they will likely continue to need reinforcements when they begin play again.

Bonus: Oskar Olausson scored on a great individual effort 25 seconds into an exhibition game in advance of Sweden getting underway at the World Junior Championship.
