Avalanche head back to playoffs after 5-2 win over Blues

Gabriel Landeskog sat at his locker stall, his skates still laced and most of his gear still on.

Game No. 82 for these two boiled down to a winner-take-all scenario. Although, there was one caveat — the Avalanche couldn’t allow the game to go to overtime since the Blues held the tiebreaker. St. Louis pulled out all the stops late in the third: Taking out goalie Jake Allen with around 4:35 remaining. Landeskog and Nieto sealed the win with empty-net tallies that sent the raucous crowd into full celebration mode.

Credit to Colorado they’ve improved immensely over the last couple of years, Allen said. They played well again tonight.

Colorado finished with 95 points to become first NHL team to post a 40-point gain over an 82-game season since the Pittsburgh Penguins jumped 47 from 2005-06 (58) to 2006-07 (105).

He’s focused, he’s committed, he wants to get something done, as do all of them in there, Hurdle said. He led the way today. And he showed the other guys in that rotation. Gave them a nice blueprint to follow moving forward.

Cincinnati’s only hit came on a single to center by starting pitcher Tyler Mahle with one out in the third. The Reds managed just three more baserunners the rest of the way. Taillon was sitting at 94 pitches through eight innings when Hurdle checked to see if he was still good to go.

Pittsburgh’s bullpen never stirred as Taillon (2-0) finished off the first shutout of his career and the Pirates’ first one-hitter since A.J. Burnett did it against the Chicago Cubs on July 31, 2012.
