Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog: Cashes in on blunder

Landeskog scored a goal on three shots, added three hits and went plus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blues in Game 3. Landeskog's goal won't count as an empty-netter even though Ville Husso was caught between the crease and the bench when it was scored. Fortunate or not, they all count the same, and Landeskog's up to five tallies in seven playoff games. The 29-year-old has added five helpers, 37 hits, 22 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in the postseason.

With Gabriel Landeskog set to return, Avalanche head into Stanley Cup Playoffs 'healthiest we've been all year'

Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog: Returns with two points

Landeskog scored a power-play goal on five shots, added an assist, logged six hits and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Predators in Game 1. Landeskog missed the end of the regular season, but he didn't skip a beat upon his return to the lineup. The 29-year-old helped out on an Artturi Lehkonen goal in the first period before scoring one of his own in the second. Landeskog started the series on the second line -- Valeri Nichushkin has clicked on the top line in Landeskog's absence, and head coach Jared Bednar clearly didn't want to disrupt the chemistry. Landeskog posted 30 goals and 29 helpers in 51 regular-season contests, so he should be capable of solid offense and physicality during the Avalanche's postseason run.

Avalanche's Gabriel Landeskog: Remaining back in Denver

Landeskog (knee) did not travel with the Avs for their three-game road trip but is expected to start skating at home, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports Wednesday. Landeskog has already missed the team's last 17 contests and will be on the shelf for at least three more based on his current timeline. Once cleared to play, the 29-year-old Swede should be a lock for a first-line role. As such, Landeskog should immediately return to being a great fantasy asset upon his return..
