Jost took control and pushed it ahead to Compher, who slid an expert pass along the crease to Bourque for his third goal of the season.The Avalanche added to it as they connected on two long passes to set up Jost. The 19-year-old split two defenders just in front of the blue line and beat Jones’ glove for his fourth of the season.Ward cut the deficit to 2-1 with 6:31 left in the period after scoring on a rebound.
