NEWARK, N.J., Oct. 15 (UPI) -- Chris Stewart gave Colorado a two-goal lead in the third period Friday and the Avalanche held on to defeat New Jersey 3-2.

The Devils remained winless in three home games this season despite firing 42 shots at Colorado's Craig Anderson.

Colorado's Cody McLeod received a game misconduct penalty in the first period for driving a New Jersey player into the boards, but the Devils could not take advantage of the 5-minute power play that followed.

The Avalanche managed a 1-0 lead after one period despite being outshot 17-3 in the stanza.

Stewart scored on a slapshot 4:31 into the third to give Colorado a 3-1 advantage. Ilya Kovalchuk brought the Devils within one with 11:11 to play in regulation, but Anderson was solid the rest of the way.

Martin Brodeur gave up three goals on 22 shots to take the loss.

Matt Taormina scored a power-play goal for the Devils in the second period, the first of his NHL career.

Colorado has won three of its four games this season.
