Savard’s long goal leads Blue Jackets pas Avs 4-3

DENVER (AP) — David Savard drove in shot from just inside the blue line with 1:01 left in the third period, lifting the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Sunday night.

Savard, whose turnover early in the game led to a goal for Colorado, was able to get enough on the puck to knock it past Semyon Varlamov for the Blue Jackets’ fifth win in their last six road games.

Brandon Dubinsky scored a pair of goals for the Blue Jackets, and Ryan Johansen and added a goal.

Colorado scored its quickest goal of the season when Jarome Iginla intercepted a wayward pass by Savard in the Blue Jackets’ zone and wristed a shot past Curtis McElhinney 30 seconds into the game.

Gabriel Landeskog and Cody McLeod also had goals for Colorado.

Landeskog put in a backhand shot for Colorado to even the score at 2, but Johansen put the Blue Jackets back in front about 2
