Bozak, Blues beat Avalanche in OT, tighten Stanley Cup playoff series
May 26 (UPI) -- Center Tyler Bozak beat goaltender Darcy Kuemper for a score in overtime to lead the St. The score came 3:38 into the bonus period of the 5-4 victory Wednesday at Ball Arena in Denver. Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon scored three goals and logged an assist in the loss. "We gotta move on, come back and win Game 6 on the road," MacKinnon said.
The Avalanche scored the first of three unanswered scores when MacKinnon lit the lamp 3:51 into the first period. Left wing Gabriel Landeskog pushed the Avalanche lead to three 4:02 into the second period. Thomas found the net for his first score midway through the third. MacKinnon scored a go-ahead goal for the Avalanche less than two minutes later.
Blues left wing Pavel Buchnevich received a pass while along the right boards deep in Avalanche territory at the start of that sequence. Bozak then ended the Avalanche's hopes to clinch a Western Conference finals spot in Game 5 just minutes into the extra period. Bozak recovered the puck behind the Avalanche net and skated to the left side.
