COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Dan Lacosta made 31 saves - including a toe stop on Marek Svatos with seconds remaining - for his first career shutout in his second NHL start as the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-0 on Tuesday night.

Lacosta, who won his first start Saturday, a 3-2 overtime decision over Western-Conference leading San Jose, played again because rookie Steve Mason is out due to mononucleosis. Regular backup Wade Dubielewicz has the flu.

Andrew Murray, Jason Williams and Fredrik Modin scored third-period goals and Jan Hejda added two assists for Columbus, which swept the season series (4-0) from the Avalanche for the first time.
