Wild edge Avs in first game back from break

DENVER (AP) - Andrew Brunette scored twice and Jose Theodore stopped 38 shots, helping the Minnesota Wild hold off a rusty Colorado Avalanche squad for a 4-3 win on Thursday night.

Kyle Brodziak and Pierre-Marc Bouchard also added goals as the Wild won for the sixth time in their past seven games.

The Avalanche started off sluggish in their first contest in more than a week, allowing two goals in a 61-second span at the outset. They were scheduled to play Tuesday in St. Louis after the All-Star break, but it was postponed due to weather.

Milan Hejduk scored twice and Chris Stewart added another with 10.7 seconds remaining for the slumping Avalanche, who have dropped four of their past five.
