Hot Duchene leads Avs

at Canadiens 1 0 1 2
Blue Jackets 1 0 0 1
NEWARK, N.J. — Matt Duchene scored again, Reto Berra made 27 saves and the Avalanche beat the Devils 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Duchene had a franchise-record 11 November goals, and picked up right where he left off on the first day of December. He opened the scoring at 2:10 of the second period with a shot from the right circle that hit goalie Cory Schneider in the left arm and trickled into the net.

Tyson Barrie also scored for Colorado, which got its third win in the last eight games. The Avalanche improved to 8-0-1 in its last nine games against the Devils.

Kyle Palmieri scored for New Jersey, and Schneider made 23 stops.

Berra got the start in the second of back-to-back games on the road. Semyon Varlamov gave up four goals Monday in a 5-3 loss to the Islanders in Brooklyn.

Barrie powered Colorado to a 2-0 lead with a rising wrist shot from the right circle at 6:15 of the second.

The Devils broke through 2:09 into the third period, scoring off a faceoff. Travis Zajac drew the puck back to Palmieri, who fired a shot that glanced off defenseman Nate Guenin.

The Devils outshot the Avalanche 9-6 in the third but could not get the equalizer.

Fans received an Adam Henrique bobblehead.

New Jersey scratched defenseman David Schlemko, right wing Brian O'Neill and left wing Stefan Matteau. The Colorado scratches were left wing Andrew Agozzino and defenseman Brandon Gormley.

Avalanche forward Jarome Iginla played in his 1,417th game, tying Luke Richardson for 28th on the career list.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: Kings defenseman Matt Greene is scheduled to have shoulder surgery Thursday and will be out indefinitely. He has played in three games this season, going scoreless with eight penalty minutes. The 32-year-old former alternate captain was a key contributor to Los Angeles' Stanley Cup champion teams in 2012 and 2014, providing physical defense and steady leadership. He scored a career-high 15 points in 2011-12, but has just 16 points in 128 games over the last four seasons. Greene played five games during the 2012-13 regular season, undergoing surgery on a herniated disc in his back. … Predators center Mike Fisher left Tuesday's game against the Coyotes with a lower-body injury and the team said he would not return.
