COLUMBUS — Gabriel Landeskog’s late goal scoring kept the Colorado Avalanche’s winning streak going.
Landeskog scored twice, including a power-play goal at 4:27 of overtime to help the Avalanche extend their winning streak to four with a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over Columbus on Tuesday night.
All three of Colorado’s goals went in off Columbus players.
“We were the best shooters in the game tonight versus our own guy,” Columbus coach Todd Richards said. “You might see one, might see two. Three is a lot and that was all of their goals.”
Rookie scoring leader Nathan MacKinnon, centering the top line with Matt Duchene expected to miss a month with a knee injury, assisted on Landeskog’s tying and winning scores.
“After the second going into the third we talked about not finding any excuses,” Landeskog said of his team that was down 2-0.
“Not using any injuries or what-not as an excuse. And it’s an opportunity for a lot of guys to step up and a lot of guys did. We played a playoff-type of third period.”

DETROIT — If Miguel Cabrera keeps winning MVP awards into the twilight of his career, his massive new contract will become even more lucrative.
In addition to $248 million in guaranteed salary from 2016-25, Cabrera can earn up to $4 million annually in award bonuses. That includes $2 million for each MVP he wins and $1 million for each Triple Crown. For 2014-15, his bonuses remain the same as they were in his previous deal.

Tiger Woods had surgery on his ailing back and said Tuesday he will miss the Masters for the first time in his career.
Woods said on his website that he had surgery Monday in Utah for a pinched nerve that had been hurting him for several months, knowing the surgery would keep him from Augusta National next week for the first time since he was in high school.
The No. 1 player in the world is a four-time Masters champion.
“After attempting to get ready for the Masters, and failing to make the necessary progress, I decided in consultation with my doctors to have this procedure done, Woods said. “I’d like to express my disappointment to the Augusta National membership, staff, volunteers and patrons that I will not be at the Masters.
“It’s a week that’s very special to me,” he said. “It also looks like I’ll be forced to miss several upcoming tournaments to focus on my rehabilitation and getting healthy.”

Cavaliers making late drive for playoff spot PDF Print E-mail

CLEVELAND — Although faint, the Cavaliers have a playoff pulse. And it’s getting stronger.
Seemingly without hope weeks ago, along with other sub-.500 teams in the Eastern Conference, the Cavaliers still have some life left in them despite key injuries and internal upheaval.
With seven games left and a favorable schedule, Cleveland is in the mix to make the playoffs for the first time since 2010, when LeBron James was in his final year wearing wine and gold.
It’s been a remarkable turnaround for the Cavs (30-45), who hit their low point Feb. 5 with a 119-108 loss to a Los Angeles Lakers team that finished their victory with just five players.
“We just kind of stayed the course,” coach Mike Brown explained Sunday after the Cavs won a physical matchup with Indiana to pull within 2 1/2 games of Atlanta for the East’s eighth playoff spot. “Our guys just keep fighting.”
The Cavs have won four of five to climb back within reach of the Hawks, who snapped a six-game losing streak Monday night with a 103-95 win over the woeful Philadelphia 76ers. Cleveland, now three games behind Atlanta for the eighth spot, plays at Orlando on Wednesday before visiting Atlanta on Friday, a game that could determine whether they have anything to play for in the final five games.
