NHL.com @NHL

DENVER - David Savard drove in shot from just inside the blue line at 18:59 of 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.
