ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Semyon Varlamov made 37 saves and Brad Malone got the go-ahead goal with 11:33 left in the third, leading the Colorado Avalanche to a 2-1 preseason victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night.

Guillaume Desbiens opened the scoring for Colorado at 12:20 of the second period with a 45-foot wrist shot past Jonas Hiller’s glove, following a turnover by forward Jakob Silfverberg in the Anaheim zone. Silfverberg left the game with 5:02 remaining because of an undisclosed injury.

Kyle Palmieri tied it 57 seconds into the third on a breakaway goal set up by defenseman Francois Beauchemin, who played his first game since reconstructive surgery on his right knee.

Hiller finished with 23 saves.

Varlamov had a league-worst 21 losses and a 3.02 goals-against average for Colorado during the lockout shortened 48-game schedule in 2012-13.
