Avalanche 5, Red Wings 4

The Red Wings lost a close one to the Avalanche, 5-4 in Colorado, Monday.

Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard was pulled after allowing four goals  on 10 shots in the first period.   Howard was replaced by Joey MacDonald, who allowed only one goal the rest of the way on 16 shots.

Matt Duchene scored twice in Colorado’s four- goal first period and Peter Budaj stopped 26 shots, helping the Avalanche halt the Detroit Red Wings’ three-game winning streak with the 5-4 victory.

Paul Stastny, Kevin Porter and David Jones added goals for the Avalanche in a game that featured two of the NHL’s highest-scoring teams.

Jan Mursak netted his first NHL goal, and Brian Rafalski, Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Holmstrom also scored for the Red Wings.
