DENVER – It was Presidents' Day, so it was fitting that defense and goaltending took the holiday off. At least the offenses showed up.
Most of the action happened in the second period, when the teams combined for seven goals.
The Avalanche had seven different goal scorers, including the first career goal for rookie defenseman Tyson Barrie. Chuck Kobasew scored his first of the season. Paul Stastny and Jamie McGinn also added goals. Semyon Varlamov made 33 shots in the win.
Chris Mason got the start for the Predators (7-4-5), but was pulled after the sixth Colorado goal. Nashville got goals from five different players, including captain Shea Weber.
Colorado gets back in action Wednesday when they host rookie sensation Vladimir Tarasenko and the St. Louis Blues.
