Avs carry momentum into game at Washington

WASHINGTON -- The Colorado Avalanche are in last place in the Central Division, but they have a little reason for optimism after recording a 2-1 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins in Pittsburgh on Monday night.

"Gutsy. Liked it," Colorado coach Jared Bednar said after the win, his team's second straight.

The Avalanche will carry that momentum into a game against the Capitals in Washington on Tuesday.
