Jones' short-handed goal helps Avs beat Bruins
The Colorado Avalanche are enjoying an unexpectedly strong start. The Boston Bruins are surprising for another reason.
David Jones scored a short-handed goal to lift the Avalanche over the Bruins 4-3 on Monday, sending the top team in the Eastern Conference last season to its third loss in five games.
Marek Svatos had a tiebreaking, power-play goal midway into the second period and Milan Hejduk and Scott Hannan also scored for the Avalanche (3-1-1).
