DENVER -- Boone Jenner made sure that credit went where credit should for his winning goal. Vapormax Flyknit Outlet .To Brandon Dubinsky for setting up the play. To Cam Atkinson for that on-the-money, no-look pass.A heck of a play by them, Jenner said.Jenner knocked in the winner with 11:03 remaining, Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 18 shots and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the slumping Colorado Avalanche 3-2 on Thursday night.Really happy for Boone to pop one, Dubinsky said.
