Varlamov's 25 saves help Avs beat Coyotes 3-2

DENVER (AP) - Semyon Varlamov made 25 saves, Gabriel Landeskog had a goal and an assist, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 on Thursday night.

Kevin Porter and Stefan Elliott also scored for Colorado, which went 8-1 at home in December.

Mikkel Boedker had two goals, and Kyle Chipchura had two assists for the Coyotes. Jason LaBarbera stopped 32 shots in the loss.

The Avalanche sustained a blow when center Matt Duchene left the game early in the first period with a knee injury. Duchene got hurt as he right skate got caught in the ice as he tried to deliver a check. He skated to the bench and went immediately to the locker room.
