|Jones Scores 2 Goals as Avs Beat Blackhawks 5-2
|DENVER (AP) -- Gabriel Landeskog broke a tie 38 seconds into the third period and David Jones added two goals, helping the Colorado Avalanche snap a five-game skid with a 5-2 win over the struggling Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
Peter Mueller and Jones scored 35 seconds apart in the second period to send the Avalanche to their third victory in four games against Chicago this season. Kyle Quincey tacked on an empty-net goal with just more than 2 minutes remaining.
Brent Seabrook and Patrick Kane had goals for the Blackhawks, who dropped their eighth straight on the road. They haven't won away from United Center since Dec. 14 at Minnesota. Chicago is 0-3-1 on its nine-game trip.
