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.
