Avalanche Clinch Playoff Spot

By  | 

Milan Hejduk and Wojtek Wolski scored 35 seconds apart in the second period and the Colorado Avalanche rallied to beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 Tuesday night to clinch a playoff spot.

After falling behind 2-0 early in the second, John-Michael Liles started the rally with a power-play goal midway through the period. Hejduk and Wolski completed it 5 minutes later.

Peter Forsberg, back after missing the last game with a groin injury, scored his first goal since coming back to the NHL a month ago on a breakaway 5 minutes into the third.

Colorado moved five points ahead of the ninth-place Canucks, who only have two games left to play.
