NHL roundup: Viktor Fasth, Ducks shut out Avalanche

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 in Denver.

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. The 30-year-old Swedish goaltender has been quite a find for the Ducks since he signed as a free agent over the offseason. He’s yet to allow more than two goals in any of his four starts.

A backup to Jonas Hiller, Fasth is making a strong case for more time in the net. His best save against Colorado was when Milan Hejduk skated in late in the final period and lined a shot that Fasth gobbled up with his chest.

Stars 3, Oilers 2 — Jaromir Jagr scored in overtime, Jamie Benn had a goal and an assist and Derek Roy scored a power-play goal as visiting Dallas defeated Edmonton. Ales Hemsky and Justin Schultz scored for the Oilers.
