Anderson makes 29 saves, Avs win 5th straight

DENVER (AP) - Craig Anderson stopped 29 shots, Matt Duchene and Brandon Yip both scored, and the Colorado Avalanche won their fifth straight by topping the Nashville Predators 2-1 on Friday night.

Cody Franson had a goal, and Pekka Rinne made 21 saves for the Predators. Nashville, which has a better away mark than at home, has dropped two straight on the road and three consecutive overall.

Anderson, the Avalanche's only goalie during the winning streak, has allowed only two goals in his last three starts.
