Avs continue Boston success

BOSTON — Matt Duchene scored his 10th goal and John Mitchell got his first, lifting the Avalanche over the Bruins 4-2 on Thursday night.

Colorado won for the 10th time in 11 visits to Boston, where it hasn't lost since 1998.

Duchene's goal 5:30 into the game was the first of three unassisted scores for Colorado, which shut down Boston in the third period after David Pastrnak scored twice in the second to pull the Bruins within 3-2.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Anders Lee's second goal of the game with just over seven minutes remaining lifted the host Islanders to a 3-2 victory over the Blues. Lee's go-ahead score on a slap shot came after Casey Cizikas won a faceoff in the Blues zone and sent the puck back to Lee, who rifled it past Allen with 7:18 left. Lee, who started the season slowly, has seven goals in his last eight games. … Sidney Crosby got his 18th goal and added an assist to lead the visiting Penguins over the Panthers 5-1. Pittsburgh, which visits the Lightning on Saturday, has won four straight and five of its past six.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office denied the Vegas Golden Knights' trademark application a little more than two weeks after the new NHL franchise unveiled its name and logo. The office cites potential confusion with the team name for the College of Saint Rose in New York, which is also the Golden Knights.
