GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Wojtek Wolski beat his former Colorado teammates in his Phoenix debut, scoring the go-ahead goal with 22 seconds left in the Coyotes' 3-1 victory over the Avalanche on Thursday night.
Wolski joined the Coyotes on Wednesday in one of the seven deals the team pulled off before the trading deadline.
Lee Stempniak, acquired from Toronto on Wednesday, scored for the Coyotes in the first period, and Radim Vrbata added an empty-net goal with a second left. Ilya Bryzgalov made 23 saves, allowing only John-Michael Liles' power-play goal in the second period.
