Avalanche’s Brett Heimlich named third star in win despite not playing a second

Yahoo! Sports

As technology continues to advance and become an increasing influence on professional hockey, the players on the ice aren’t the only ones responsible for determining the outcome of games anymore.

Whether you’re a fan of it or not, video review has been expanding and the job of a team’s video coach and their staff have become all the more important as a result. Thursday night’s clash between the Colorado Avalanche and Boston Bruins at the Pepsi Center was a prime example as the decisions of Brett Heimlich ultimately helped his side come out on top.

To reward him for his efforts and two successful challenges, Colorado’s broadcast on the contest named him the game’s third star.
