Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Red Wings rebounded from a lopsided
loss by holding on for a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche at Joe Louis
Justin Abdelkader, Daniel Cleary and Damien Brunner each had a goal for
Detroit, which was coming off Sunday's 7-1 home setback to Chicago.
Pulled against the Blackhawks, Jimmy Howard finished with 22 saves Monday
against a Colorado team struggling mightily on the road this season.
The Avalanche have dropped 12 straight away from Pepsi Center.
