Both the Colorado Avalanche and the Colorado Rockies postponed games last night as the Denver area mourned the victims of Tuesday's shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo. The Avalanche was to open the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs against San Jose with games last night and tonight. Instead, Games 1 and 2 were moved to San Jose Saturday and Monday, with Games 3 and 4 in Denver next week. "There's nothing more important than respect to our community," Avalanche general manager Pierre Lacroix said.

Jamie McGinn forced overtime by scoring with 2 seconds left in regulation, and Peter Mueller netted the lone shootout goal in the Colorado Avalanche's 5-4 win over the host Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night. McGinn scored twice, Gabriel Landeskog had a goal and assist, and David Jones scored for the Avalanche, who vaulted out of a four-way tie for eighth place in the Western Conference to sixth. Rookie Marcus Foligno scored twice for Buffalo, which inched within three points of eighth-place Washington in the East.

Defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, who played two games earlier this season for the Flyers, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while competing Friday for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and will undergo surgery Thursday. He will be out indefinitely, according to Flyers general manager Ron Hextall. Gostisbehere appeared in Flyers wins over Detroit on Oct. 25 and the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 28, averaging more than 12 minutes each game. A third-round pick in 2012 who helped lead Union College to the NCAA title last season, Gostisbehere suffered the injury during the Phantoms' 3-2 win at Manchester.

Peter Forsberg agreed to a $9.5 million, one-year contract extension with Colorado, but the club will have the final say on whether the injured center plays for the Avalanche next season. Forsberg, who would have earned $11 million including incentives this season in the last year of a three-year contract, has been sidelined since last year's playoffs by a series of injuries. His hopes of returning to the team this month were dashed when an injury to the tendons in his left foot was discovered.

Goaltender Patrick Roy remained on fire, as did the Colorado Avalanche. The Avalanche ran its unbeaten home streak to seven (5-0-2) with a 6-0 victory over the visiting Phoenix Coyotes last night. Roy stopped 20 shots and extended his unbeaten streak to 11 games (9-0-2) with his 34th career shutout. The Avalanche improved its record to an NHL-best 14-5-4. "This was really a team shutout," Roy said. "The guys were sharp tonight and we did good things defensively. " Roy moved into a 23rd-place tie on the all-time career shutout list with Bill Durnam.

Even though the Colorado Avalanche matched a season high with six goals, the postgame talk centered around defense and goaltending. Joe Sakic had two goals and two assists and Jocelyn Thibault stopped 21 shots as the visiting Avalanche won their fifth straight, 6-1, over the Dallas Stars. "We've been playing well on defense, but this was our best defensive game all year," said Thibault, who came within 11 seconds of registering his second career shutout before Brent Gilchrist scored his second goal of the season.

Finally, the Florida Panthers found a way to beat the Colorado Avalanche. Tom Fitzgerald scored shorthanded in the third period and John Vanbiesbrouck stopped 25 shots as the visiting Panthers defeated the Avalanche, 2-1, last night in the first meeting of the teams since the Stanley Cup finals last June. It was a different story this time for the Panthers, who were swept in four straight by Colorado in last season's finals. "Forget the notion that this makes up for us not winning the Stanley Cup," Florida coach Doug MacLean said.

The Flyers continued their winning ways during their homestand, but it wasn't easy in their 4-3 win Saturday over the Colorado Avalanche at the Wells Fargo Center. The power-play unit scored three times and looked healthy, which is more than can be said about the organization's defensemen. A 4-0 lead, with three goals coming on the power play, also looked healthy before Colorado scored three unanswered goals and put some serious late-game pressure on goalie Steve Mason. It was the Flyers' third straight win, all at home.

Ed Snider was in the midst of a rant about how he'd like to take a torch to the NHL's Olympic connection after these Games in Sochi, Russia, that will bring the league to a halt at the end of the week. "No other league does it, why should we?" the Flyers owner said. Snider is worried that the Olympic break, which lasts 2½ weeks and puts some of the game's greatest players at risk of injury, will sap the momentum from his team, which continued one of its best stretches of the season with a 3-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

STEVE MASON sat in his stall, still dripping sweat, with a wet, blue towel draped over the back of his neck to provide some relief. His teammates had long since left the locker room, some had already conducted their postgame interviews. Mason barely had enough energy to untie his skates, his face flushed and pale as the ice on which he just earned the Flyers another two points. Even after taking a second to relax, Mason walked out of the Flyers' training room and said he felt as if his heart was racing "100 miles a minute.

MAX TALBOT had been a member of the Colorado Avalanche for only 24 hours. He had played only one game for Patrick Roy. Talbot had met each of his new teammates only once before lacing up his skates. Yet, Talbot could immediately tell something was different about the Avalanche after Friday's 3-2 win in Dallas. And it wasn't only Colorado's place in the standings, compared with the Flyers'. "I liked the atmosphere, where even though they came back, 2-2, in the third, the bench was just even-keel," Talbot told reporters.

The Colorado Avalanche made the 17-year-old MacKinnon the first pick of the draft yesterday at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

CHRIS KREIDER steered in a pass from Rick Nash 7:03 into overtime, and the New York Rangers stayed alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs with a 4-3 victory over visiting Boston last night. New York, which erased 2-0 and 3-2 deficits in the critical Game 4 matchup in the Eastern Conference semifinals, still trails the series 3-1. The Rangers will need to win again tomorrow in Boston to force a Game 6 back in Madison Square Garden. The Rangers, who were outshot 40-32, won a faceoff deep in their zone, and Nash rushed the puck up ice. He stopped above the right circle and fed a hard pass in front that Kreider skated into and tipped past goalie Tuukka Rask for his first goal of the playoffs.

The Chicago Blackhawks aren't about to mourn the end of their streak. "We're proud of it, but it'll be nice to move on now," defenseman Duncan Keith said after the Blackhawks' 6-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche Friday. The loss was Chicago's first in regulation this season and ended a remarkable run in which they earned at least one point in their first 24 games, an NHL record. "It's hockey. We've lost games before in our lives. It's not like we're going to sit here and cry," Keith said.
