NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Nick Holden scored two goals and had an assist and the Colorado Avalanche held off the Nashville Predators 5-4 Saturday night for their fourth straight victory.

Jan Hejda, Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene each scored a goal for Colorado, which is 8-1-1 over its past 10 games. The Avalanche earned their first win in Nashville since Jan. 6, 2009, ending a 0-6-1 skid.

Goalie Semyon Varlamov made 27 saves and improved to 11-0-5, tying the Avalanche record for going 16 consecutive games without a regulation loss.

The Predators scored three straight goals after trailing 5-1 in the third, and Roman Josi's goal at 17:03 gave them a chance to force overtime. But Varlamov stopped a flurry in the final minutes, including shots from Josi and Mike Fisher for the win.
