Avs beat New York 7-3; Trouba delivers another hard check

NEW YORK (AP) Logan O'Connor scored twice in a 22-second span in a five-goal second period, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Rangers 7-3 on Wednesday night, ending New York's seven-game winning streak.

Mikko Rantanen also scored twice for Colorado. Nathan MacKinnon, Nazem Kadri and Alex Newhook added goals, and Darcy Kuemper made 26 saves. Kadri, Devon Toews and Samuel Girard each had two assists as the Avalanche improved to 8-2-1 in their last 11 games. They also scored seven times in a 7-5 win at Philadelphia on Monday.

"We're shooting the puck again. The power play looked good and I liked what we're doing offensively," Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. "And Darcy got better as the game went on."
