Red Wings Hold On To Beat Avalanche 3-2

DETROIT (AP) – Damien Brunner ended his 15-game scoring drought and Jimmy Howard made a late save to help the Detroit Red Wings hold off the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 on Monday night.

Justin Abdelkader scored late in the first period, Danny Cleary put Detroit ahead by two at 6:28 of the second and Brunner had a one-timer a few minutes later.

The Red Wings, coming off a 7-1 loss to Chicago, allowed a 3-0 lead to turn into a one-goal game.

Colorado avoided a shutout with a power-play goal at 14:08 of the third period when Jamie McGinn’s backhander from between the circles sailed over a sprawling Howard.

Avalanche forward Cody McLeod checked Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith into Howard, who couldn’t get off the ice in time to get in a position to stop McGinn’s shot.
