DENVER (AP) - T.J. Galiardi broke a second-period tie, Craig Anderson stopped 27 shots and the Colorado Avalanche won their sixth straight game, beating the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 on Sunday night.
Ryan Wilson and Kevin Porter also scored for the Avalanche, the highest-scoring team in the NHL.
Michael Cammalleri and Alexandre Picard scored for Montreal.
The Canadiens pulled goalie Carey Price for an extra skater with 1:08 left, but couldn't tie it.
Anderson was solid in net as he matched a career high with his sixth straight win. He helped the Avalanche kill a late penalty and earlier thwarted a scoring attempt from Andrei Kostitsyn, lunging out of the net and knocking the puck off Kostitsyn's stick.
