Avalanche 4, Canucks 1

By  | 

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- T.J Galiardi scored twice, Peter Budaj made 20 saves, and the Colorado Avalanche snapped an eight-game losing streak with a surprising 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night.

Milan Hejduk had a goal and two assists, and Ben Guite also scored to help Colorado snap an 0-7-1 skid and put a dent in the Canucks' playoff positioning.

Pavol Demitra snapped Budaj's shutout bid with 4:38 left, but by then it was too late. Coming off a 5-3 loss in Edmonton on Saturday night and playing at home for just the second time in the last nine games, the Canucks couldn't take advantage of an injury-riddled Avalanche team in last place in the Western Conference.
