Landeskog has goal and 2 assists, Stastny has 2 points as Avalanche beat Coyotes 4-2

DENVER - Gabriel Landeskog had a goal and two assists, Paul Stastny had a goal and an assist and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-2 on Friday night.

Semyon Varlamov stopped 40 shots in his first game after playing for Russia in the Sochi Olympics, and P.A. Parenteau and Nate Guenin also scored for Colorado, which bounced back from blowing a two-goal lead in a loss to Los Angeles on Wednesday. Guenin's goal was his first in nearly two years after spending all of last season in the American Hockey League.

Shane Doan had two goals and Thomas Greiss had 29 saves for Phoenix, which lost 3-2 in a shootout at Winnipeg on Thursday night is 0-2-1 in its last three games to hurt its playoff chances in the season's final six weeks.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
