DENVER (AP) - Craig Anderson made 37 saves, Chris Stewart and T.J. Galiardi scored and the Colorado Avalanche hung on to beat the New Jersey Devils 3-1 on Saturday.
Wojtek Wolski scored an empty-net goal with 12.3 seconds left to seal the win.
Martin Brodeur had 25 saves and Rob Niedermayer scored for the Devils.
New Jersey forward Patrik Elias left the game on a stretcher after being checked by Colorado defenseman Ryan Wilson 38 seconds into the second period. Wilson hit Elias with a high check at the Avalanche blue line with 38 seconds gone in the second period on Saturday.
