DETROIT (AP) - Jordan Leopold scored on a penalty shot and added an assist and Andrew Raycroft made 34 saves as the Colorado Avalanche held on for a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night.
Wojtek Wolski and Paul Stastny also scored for Colorado.
Tomas Holmstrom and Marian Hossa scored for Detroit. Chris Osgood stopped 24 shots.
Hossa brought the Red Wings to within a goal 7:07 into the third period when he scored from the left circle off a face off won by Henrik Zetterberg. It was Hossa's 16th goal.
Leopold scored on a penalty shot 1:51 into the third for his fifth goal.
He put a backhand over Osgood's shoulder after the Red Wings' Brett Lebda was called for covering the puck in the crease.
Holmstrom cut the Avalanche's lead to 2-1 at 9:10 of the second period. With a delayed penalty being called on Colorado and Osgood pulled for a sixth attacker, Holmstrom scored on a goal-mouth scramble for his ninth goal.
Colorado scored on two of its first four shots to take a 2-0 lead 4:34 into the game.
Wolski capitalized on a turnover by Johan Franzen in the neutral zone and scored on a breakaway at 1:07 for his seventh goal. Holmstrom took a hooking penalty at 3:49 and it took 45 seconds for Stastny to make it 2-0 as he beat Osgood with a shot from the inside edge of the left circle. It was Stastny's seventh goal.
Notes: Colorado RW Marek Svatos missed his second game because of a back injury. ... The Avalanche scored two goals in losing all four games to Detroit last season. ... Holmstrom has two goals in his past two games.
