TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Alex Tanguay and Nathan MacKinnon each had a goal and an assist, Semyon Varlamov made 34 saves and the Colorado Avalanche ended a four-game losing streak by beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 on Thursday night.
Varlamov won his 108th game with the Avalanche and moved past Dan Bouchard into second place on the franchise wins list. Jarome Iginla had two assists to move past Phil Housley (1,232) into sole possession of 38th place with 1,233 points in his career.
Tampa Bay, coming off a 1-1-2 road trip, got a goal from Alex Killorn.
Tanguay opened the scoring during a goal-mouth scramble with 4:03 left in the first. A no-goal call on the ice was overturned after a video review.
The Avalanche made it 2-0 with 6:56 left in the second after Iginla sent a pass from behind net off goalie Ben Bishop that MacKinnon put into the net from in-close.
