"Finding a way" has coincided with the Avalanche's opening-night motto "Why not us" all season, and Tuesday night the Avs fought hard enough to earn two points at Nationwide Arena.
A fluke third-period goal by Brad Malone and a real nice one by captain Gabe Landeskog erased Columbus' two-goal lead, and Landeskog scored off a fortunate bounce with 32.2 seconds remaining in overtime for an improbable 3-2 victory that stunned a playoff-hopeful Blue Jackets crowd of 16,550.
"We're certainly finding ways to win," said Landeskog, who is on a scoring tear with five goals and seven points in his last four games, "and that's what you have to do at this time of year with home-ice advantage at stake."
Beginning the playoffs in Denver against Chicago is looking more realistic for the Avs, who extended their Central Division lead over the defending Stanley Cup champion to three points. Colorado has seven remaining games; the Blackhawks h...
BEST OF MAXIM
One: A slow start with non-crisp passing is no way to get into playoff form. Columbus needs to start getting "up" for games from the first drop of the puck. There was very little of that in the first period.
Two: The second period was where they got their mojo working. They had sustained pressure in the Colorado zone and were able to cycle the puck with relative ease. Scoring...

s/t to The Whistler who sent me this video in an email today. Brad Malone absolutely works Derek MacKenzie. Not even a close fight; Malone also scored a goal as well.
Message received, lesson learned.
Columbus Blue Jackets winger Cam Atkinson hadn't missed a game all year. And it wasn't as if he hadn't been producing. After all, the former Boston College star had scored 18 goals through early March. But something was apparently missing from his game, at least in the eyes of head coach Todd Richards.
And just like that, he was a healthy...
As a player, Corey Tropp's ignition switch is stuck in the "on" position. His motor is always revving, and that's one of the reasons the Blue Jackets winger's season has gone from waiver wire castoff to impact player on a playoff contending team.
He was acquired by Columbus in late November, from the Buffalo Sabres. To that point, it wasn't the best of times...
Center Thomas Tynan signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday. Financial terms of the contract were not released.
A third-round pick (No. 66) in the 2011 NHL Draft, the 22-year-old will report to Springfield of the American Hockey League on an amateur tryout agreement. He will be eligible to play in the Calder Cup Playoffs.
Landeskog and Varlamov have both been key contributors to the Avalanche this season. Varlamov leads the NHL with 38 wins.
Gabe Landeskog, along with some help from Columbus Blue Jackets’ players Nick Foligno and Jack Johnson, carried the Colorado Avalanche to a comeback victory over Columbus, 3-2 in overtime.
In a game that Columbus needed to win to help secure their place in the...
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Gabriel Landeskog scored twice, including a power-play goal at 4:27 of overtime to help the Colorado Avalanche extend their winning streak to four with a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.
Rookie scoring leader Nathan MacKinnon, centering the top line with Matt Duchene expected to miss a month with a knee injury, assisted on both of...
