Varlamov has 29 saves, O'Reilly and McGinn score and Avalanche beat Flyers, 2-1

DENVER - Semyon Varlamov stopped 29 shots, Ryan O'Reilly and Jamie McGinn had a goal each and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 on Thursday night.

Steve Mason also had 29 saves and Wayne Simmonds scored for the Flyers, who had their four-game winning streak stopped.

Philadelphia won the first three on this six-game road trip, scoring four goals in each victory but was stymied by strong goaltending by Colorado.

Varlamov had several good stops throughout the game, including one on Scott Hartnell with 3:24 left. It was the second time Varlamov made a big save on the big forward.

Mason came off for an extra skater with 1:29 left and Philadelphia had several chances but couldn't get the equalizer.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
