Colorado Avalanche coach Pratirck Roy met with Mikkel Boedker on Wednesday morning to try and spark some offensive confidence in his new forward. It paid off quickly against the Vancouver Canucks. Boedker scored twice and Colorado regained the second wild card into the Stanley cup playoffs from the Western Conference with a 3-1 victory against the Canucks at Rogers Arena. "Keep playing, just be a little more confident and keep going to the net and good things are going to happen. " Boedker said when asked about Roy's message. "It worked out pretty well." Boedkers second goal broke a 1-1 tie 37 seconds into the third period. Andreas Martinsen scored less than five minutes later for the Avalanche (36-31-4), who moved one point ahead of the Minnesota Wild. Colorado has 11 games left in the regular season; Minnesota has 12. "we need to play all of them like they are our last game," said goaltender Semyon Varlmov, who made 28 saves for Colorado. "I feel like playoffs start for us right now."
