Despite putting 27 shots on net Thursday night, the Colorado Avalanche couldn't get one past Minnesota goaltender Niklas Backstrom and were defeated by the Wild, 1-0.

Devin Setoguchi scored the Wild's lone goal at 17:29 of the third period.  

Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere, in his fifth start with the Avalanche, stopped 17 of 18 shots, and is now 3-2-0 on the season.

The Avalanche return home for an eight-game homestand that will begin tomorrow night against the Dallas Stars.  It will be the longest continuous homestand in Avalanche history.  

NOTES: Avalanche forward Brandon Yip, who missed the previous 18 games with a broken forearm, made his first appearance of the season going scoreless with three shots on goal in 12:00 TOI...David Jones earned his second career fighting major (both this season) in a scrap with Wild defenseman Justin Falk.
