Jan. 24, 2014 at 11:06 PM   |   Comments

SUNRISE, Fla., Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Jamie McGinn gave Colorado a three-goal lead in the second period Friday and the Avalanche had to hold on to defeat Florida 3-2.

The Panthers fired 20 shots at Semyon Varlamov in the third period and two of them got past the Colorado goaltender to give Florida a chance.

The second of those goals came from Scottie Upshall with 1:43 to play, but Varlamov closed the door and finished with 34 saves to get the win. The Avalanche are 6-1-1 in their last eight outings.

Ryan O'Reilly and Paul Stastny both scored for Colorado in the opening period, the goal by O'Reilly being his career-best 19th of the season.

Tim Thomas gave up three goals on 25 shots.
