The Avs, who had either led or were tied after two periods in their previous 10 games, trailed the visiting Winnipeg Jets after 40 minutes Sunday night and were hoping to take advantage of the Jets' shootout victory in Dallas the previous night. Mission accomplished. The Avs got goals from Jan Hejda and Paul Stastny to triumph 3-2 and improve to 10-1, the best start in Quebec/Colorado franchise history. The 1994-95 Nordiques began 9-1 in 1994-95, a year before they became the Avs. Stastny broke a 2-2 with 5:28 remaining in regulation, scoring back-door off a pass from Gabe Landeskog.

Stastny's second goal of the season helped make Av...
