BOSTON (AP) - Milan Hejduk scored with 12:03 left in the third period and Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 shots for his fifth career shutout, lifting the Colorado Avalanche to a 1-0 win over the Boston Bruins on Monday.
The Stanley Cup champion Bruins have lost two of three to start the season.
Hejduk scored the Avalanche's first goal of the season. They lost 3-0 at home to Detroit in their opener Saturday night.
Varlamov was acquired from Washington for a pair of draft picks during the summer. He had 36 saves in the loss to the Red Wings.
