Jiggy pitches shutout as Avs blank Stars

DENVER (AP) - Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 24 saves for his first save in two seasons and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Dallas Stars 3-0 Friday night.

Paul Stastny and Chuck Kobasew had a goal each and Matt Duchene scored an empty-net goal with 4.5 seconds left to seal the win and snap Colorado's three-game skid.

Giguere's last shutout was against Ottawa on Feb. 6, 2010, when he was with Anaheim.

Kari Lehtonen had 42 saves for Dallas, which has lost four straight.

Colorado has struggled at home this season, winning for just the third time in 10 games.
