DENVER - Viktor Fasth stopped 31 shots for his first NHL shutout and Francois Beauchemin scored in his 500th career game, lifting the surging Anaheim Ducks to a 3-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night.
Sheldon Souray and Saku Koivu each added a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who won their fourth straight game.
Fasth stymied the struggling Avalanche with one sprawling save after another to help Anaheim start a six-game road swing on a good note.
BRUINS 2, CANADIENS 1
MONTREAL (AP) — Linemates Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored in the opening 2:05 of the third period, lifting Boston to a victory over the Canadiens.
The win moved the Bruins (7-1-1) into sole possession of first place in the Northeast Division and kept Montreal (6-3-0) from taking over the division lead.
P.K. Subban scored his first of the season on a second period power play for Montreal, whose five-game home winning streak ended. Boston outshot Montreal 23-22.
STARS 3, OILERS 2, OT
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Jaromir Jagr scored in overtime, lifting the Stars to a victory over the injury-riddled Oilers for their first winning streak of the season.
Jagr beat Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk 1:46 into the extra period with a high wrist shot for his third goal of the season.
Jamie Benn and Derek Roy scored in regulation for the Stars, who improved to 5-5-1. Dallas has won two in a row.
Ales Hemsky and Justin Schultz scored for the Oilers, who were without three of their top four centres — Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (day to day with a shoulder injury), Shawn Horcoff (broken knuckle) and Eric Belanger (broken toes).
Adding to their woes, centre Anton Lander left the game in the first period with a foot injury.
The Oilers (4-3-3) are winless in their last four games.
