ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Craig Anderson made 32 saves to help Colorado beat the Minnesota Wild 4-1 on Friday night, a victory tempered by the loss of center Ryan O'Reilly after he crashed headfirst into the boards.
Colorado led 2-0 early in the second period when O'Reilly was taken off the ice on a stretcher after losing his balance and slamming into the boards. A team official said O'Reilly had movement in his arms and legs and was taken to Regions Hospital.
The injury delayed the game for about 10 minutes.
Kevin Porter, Milan Hejduk, Tomas Fleischmann and Ryan Wilson scored for Colorado.
Andrew Brunette scored for Minnesota.
