Ball Arena erupted on Tuesday night when Avalanche defenseman Josh Manson scored the OT winner against the St. Louis Blues to give Colorado a 1-0 lead in their Round 2 series.

The goal, which secured a 3-2 win for the Avs, was awesome for the fans and even better for the players. Manson was mic’d up during the game, a remarkable coincidence, and the NHL released the video of the mayhem.

That is fantastic. The pure joy from Manson as he realizes he just scored his first-ever playoff goal is unreal. The teammates mobbing Manson while all you can really hear is guys yelling “yeah” should give you chills.

They were just as excited as we are, and are now just 11 wins away from completing Mission16W.

Cale Makar shouldn’t have won the Conn Smythe Trophy

While the 23-year-old defenseman was stellar throughout the playoffs, his teammate was actually Colorado's most valuable player
