Avalanche Vs. Blue Jackets Score Update: Colorado Takes 2-0 Lead Into 3rd Period

The Colorado Avalanche built on the 1-0 lead over Columbus they brought into the second period with a goal by Gabriel Landeskog at the 11:36-mark. Steve Downie -- a recent acquisition from the Tampa Bay Lightning -- and Ryan O'Reilly assisted on the goal, which was Landeskog's 16th of the season.
