DENVER - Paul Stastny scored twice and added two assists and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Dallas Stars 6-2 on Monday night.

Erik Johnson and Andre Benoit also scored in a four-goal second period, and Nathan MacKinnon and Tyson Barrie scored for Colorado.

Tyler Seguin had a goal and an assist and Kevin Connauton scored his first NHL goal for the Stars, who have dropped three of the past four.

Goalie Kari Lehtonen stopped 42 shots for Dallas in a rare poor start against Colorado. Lehtonen was 8-3-2 with a 2.52 goals-against average against the Avalanche before Monday.

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
