Rangers Vs. Avalanche: Craig Anderson Sharp In Colorado's 5-1 Victory Over New York

In his return from injury, Avalanche goalie Craig Anderson showed he didn’t experience any rust from his layoff since Oct. 26. Anderson made 25 saves on 26 shots and was the second star of the game in the Avalanche’s 5-1 victory over the New York Rangers.

Youngster Matt Duchene, the top star, had a goal and two assists. He collected all three points in the second period, which was when Colorado scored four of its five goals. He assisted on Kevin Porter’s and Kevin Shattenkirk’s goals. Duchene briefly left the rink after Ruslan Fedotenko cross checked him in the neck, but it didn’t slow him down when he returned.

Shattenkirk now has two goals on the season. David Jones and Daniel Winnik scored the other goals.

The New York Rangers replaced starting goalie Henrik Lundqvist with Martin Biron after Duchene’s goal put Colorado up 3-0 in the second. Derek Stepan scored a goal at 6:03 in the third period to spoil the potential shutout.

Riding a three-game winning streak, the Avalanche are now 11-7-1 with 23 points and tied for the Northwest division lead with the Vancouver Canucks.
