NHL Capsules: Viktor Fasth helps surging Ducks shut out Avalanche

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.
