Previous Game: Ducks Fall at Colorado, 6-1

DENVER -- Despite outshooting the Avalanche 36-29, the Ducks came out of Denver with a 6-1 defeat on Opening Night.

The outcome could have been much different for the Ducks, a team in the midst of a three-game road trip to start the season. After controlling the puck down low in the Avalanche's zone after the opening faceoff, Saku Koivu's point-blank shot hit the post just 20 seconds into the game.

Avalanche forward Ryan O'Reilly opened the scoring at 15:39 of the first period moments after Varlamov made two big stops from point-blank range. Playing left wing on a line with Duchene and Downie, O'Reilly deflected an attempted pass by Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin just inside the Anaheim blue line, skated down the middle and beat goalie Viktor Fasth on a breakaway.

The Avalanche seized control in the second period with three goals on nine shots.

Varlamov kept the Ducks off the board less than a minute after when he stopped Corey Perry's blast from the right hash marks after an Avalanche turnover.

McGinn increased the lead to 4-0 at 17:20. Tanguay shot the puck past the net and MacKinnon went back to get it. He was facing the end boards when he made a no-look pass to McGinn, who beat Fasth with a quick shot from low in the right circle.

McGinn collected his second goal of the game at 11:14 to complete a pretty passing play with PA Parenteau and MacKinnon. Parenteau skated near the right-wing boards and passed to MacKinnon near the right post. The rookie quickly fed McGinn to make it 5-0.

Duchene scored into a half-open net on a power play at 13:42 off a cross-ice pass from Downie after Tanguay fired a shot from the right point.

Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg ruined Varlamov's bid for a shutout with 6.4 seconds remaining. The 22-year-old, acquired in the offseason for Bobby Ryan, chipped the puck over the shoulder of Varlamov for his first goal in a Ducks uniform.
