Avalanche Vs. Flames Score Update: Colorado Up Two After First

It definitely qualifies as "too little, too late" but after going 1-4 against the Calgary Flames so far in the 2011-2012 season, the Colorado Avalanche are off to a good start as they look to take a game back from the Flames. The Avs scored two first period goals on Friday night to go into intermission with a 2-0 lead over Calgary.

The night's first goal came courtesy a relatively unfamiliar face: center Mark Oliver, who scored his fourth goal of the season with 3:21 spent in the game. That goal was followed just over seven minutes later by winger David Jones, who lit the lamp for the 19th time this season on assists from Erik Johnson and Gabriel Landeskog.

Semyon Varlamov was steady in goal for the Avs in the first, turning away all 12 of Calgary's shots on goal.
