Halak, Canucks Contain High-flying Avalanche in 3-1 Win
DENVER (AP) — Brock Boeser and J.T. Miller scored 1:52 apart early in the third period, Jaroslav Halak stopped 32 shots and the Vancouver Canucks beat the NHL-leading Colorado Avalanche 3-1. Boeser got things rolling by taking advantage of a turnover with a goal 1:23 into the final period. Miller knocked in another off a rebound moments later. Bo Horvat added an empty-net goal as the Canucks finished 1-2 against the Avalanche this season. The Avalanche have been the third-period comeback kings this season, but couldn’t add to their total of 10. Nazem Kadri’s power-play goal made it 2-1 early in the third.
