GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Wojtek Wolski beat his former Colorado teammates in his Phoenix debut, scoring the go-ahead goal with 22 seconds left in the Coyotes' 3-1 victory over the Avalanche on Thursday night.

Wolski joined the Coyotes on Wednesday in one of the seven deals the team pulled off before the trading deadline.

Lee Stempniak, acquired from Toronto on Wednesday, scored for the Coyotes in the first period, and Radim Vrbata added an empty-net goal with a second left.

Ilya Bryzgalov made 23 saves, allowing only John-Michael Liles' power-play goal in the second period.

With the victory, Phoenix moved into fourth place in the Western Conference -- a point ahead of Los Angeles and three in front of Colorado.

Stempniak opened the scoring at 6:13 of the first period, taking Vernon Fiddler's pass from behind the net and beating Craig Anderson.

Peter Mueller, traded to Colorado along with Kevin Porter for Wolski, assisted on Liles' goal.

NOTES: Bryzgalov tied the franchise goalie season victory record with 33. ... Fiddler picked up his first point since he has two assists Jan. 30 against the Rangers, a stretch of nine games. ... Colorado's Darcy Tucker left the game in the second period after catching a stick in the face. ... Anderson started his 19th straight game.
