Duchene put Colorado up 1-0 at 8:16 of the first on a somewhat innocent looking wrist shot that trickled across the goal line. His power-play goal from in-close made it 2-0 with 6:22 left in the second. It was the first multi-goal game of the youngster's career.
Anderson stopped a good scoring chance by Steven Stamkos just 24 seconds into the game en route to his third shutout this season and 10th overall. He has opened the season by starting 26 of Colorado's 28 games.
Tampa Bay goalie Antero Niittymaki had 26 saves. The Lightning dropped to 6-2-4 at home.
Wojtek Wolski added an empty-net goal at 19:46 of the third to ice the game for Colorado.
Duchene, taken third overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, has four goals and seven points over his last seven games. Chris Stewart assisted on both of Duchene's goals to help the Avalanche improve to 6-0-0 against the Eastern Conference this season.
Colorado defenseman Adam Foote left with 4:06 remaining in the second period after it appeared he was hit in the leg by a shot. He returned to start the third period.
