Avalanche Vs. Canucks Score Update: Last Minute Vancouver Surge Ties Game, 2-2

The Colorado Avalanche entered the waning minutes of the second period with 2-0 lead and had realistic hopes of easing into a comfortable win, but the Vancouver Canucks had other plans and quickly knotted the game at 2-2.

After killing a power play to start the second period, the Avalanche held strong until an interference penalty on RW Steve Downie opened another opportunity. Colorado took advantage as LW Jamie McGinn fired a 22-foot wrister for a power play goal and a 2-0 Avalanche lead. But when a RW David Jones penalty gave the Canucks a power play with just under 5:00 remaining in the period, a LW Mason Raymond wristshot halved the Colorado advantage, 2-1.

Just moments later, right after the Avalanche had fired four consecutive shots on the Vancouver goal, the Canucks returend fire with a LW Chris Higgins 21-foot goal and a tied, 2-2 game.
