Makar scores in 6th round of shootout, Avs beat Lightning

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Cale Makar scored in the sixth round of the shootout to give the Colorado Avalanche a 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.

Makar beat Andrei Vasilevskiy with a wrist shot after Darcy Kuemper denied Anthony Cirelli to begin the sixth round as the Avalanche ended a three-game losing streak.

"You just can't afford in this league to not be carving points out on a regular basis, and we haven't done this so far. Tonight I thought we played with real good purpose, we were definitely a more connected group," Colorado coach Jared Bednar said. "I thought it was a really good hockey game by both teams.
