DENVER (AP) – Bo Horvat had a goal and an assist, Jacob Markstrom made 29 saves and chipped in with an assist, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-1 on Tuesday night. Sven Baertschi and Matt Bartkowski also had goals for the Canucks, who stopped a four-game winless streak. Vancouver’s recent 0-3-1 stretch had dropped them to fifth in the Pacific Division. Francois Beauchemin scored the lone goal for Colorado, and Semyon Varlamov had 25 saves while the Avalanche continued to scuffle on home ice, where they are 12-13-4.

FORMER BRONCO RB CUT BY PATRIOTS

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The New England Patriots have requested waivers on running back Montee Ball. The move Tuesday to cut the former Wisconsin standout comes a day after Ball found out that he wouldn’t face felony charges after an apparent argument with his girlfriend. Ball spent time on the Patriots practice squad late in the season. He was cut by Denver in September. Prosecutors had charged Ball on Monday with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, for an incident at a downtown Madison hotel early Friday. The woman told police she and Ball were arguing when he threw her in the air and she landed on a table, cutting her leg. A criminal complaint says Ball also was charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly striking the woman on the face five days earlier.
