Found April 02, 2014 on Pro Sports Daily:
"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.

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.

And just like that, he was a healthy...

Waiver-wire acquisition has played major role in Blue Jackets run
