Avs fall again

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - John Madden scored with 9:05 left to break a tie and lift the Minnesota Wild to a must-have 5-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.

Rookie defenseman Jared Spurgeon tacked on another score less than three minutes later and Kyle Brodziak added an empty-netter to pad Minnesota's lead, dropping the Avalanche to 2-16-2 since Jan. 18.

Kevin Porter and Paul Stastny had goals for the Avalanche, but they again hit their ceiling: They're averaging less than two scores during this terrible 20-game stretch. For the season, they're a 0-27-4 when getting only two or fewer goals.

Martin Havlat and Andrew Brunette scored for the Wild.
