Avalanche Vs. Bruins Final Score: Milan Hejduk Nets Game-Winner In 3rd Period

The Colorado Avalanche waited nearly 108 minutes to score their first goal of the season, but it was the only one that counted. Milan Hejduk put the puck in the back of the net at the 7:57 mark to score the game-winner in the 1-0 decision. Hejduk came from the left wing and got around a bit of Bruins traffic to send it past Tuukka Rask. Jan Hejda and Matt Duchene received assists on the play.

Semyon Varlamov was impressive again in the net, coming up with big save after big save. He faced several particularly tough shots late in the game, but he was a brick wall in net. He picked up the shutout with 30 saves. Rask was solid outside of the goal he allowed, making 35 saves.

The Avalanche (1-1-0, 2 points) resume play on Wednesday with a road trip against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
