Avalanche Vs. Penguins Score Update: Pittsburgh Cuts Lead To 3-2 After Two Periods

The Colorado Avalanche are still leading on the road after two periods in Tuesday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but their lead has been trimmed to 3-2 after a goal from Pittsburgh's Pascal Dupuis. Colorado went scoreless in the period after striking for three scores in the first.

The Avalanche once again got some shots against Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, but they weren't able to capitalize during the second period. Dupuis, a right wing, scored his fourth goal of the season near the period's midway point, with Craig Adams and Arron Asham assisting on the play. Colorado's Ryan O'Burne got docked for his second penalty of the night, getting two minutes in the box for interference.

Hanging onto this game would be huge for the Avalanche, who have lost seven of their past nine games after a strong start to the season. The Penguins are hoping to keep pace with the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers in the Atlantic division.
