The Colorado Avalanche continue finding ways to win despite losing key players.
At home, at least.
P.A. Parenteau and Jamie McGinn scored goals 3 minutes, 29 seconds apart in the second period and the host Avalanche rallied to beat the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 on Saturday.
Paul Stastny also scored and Semyon Varlamov made 25 saves for Colorado, which remained unbeaten in three home games.
"In order to have a lot of success in this league, you have to be a dominant home team," Colorado coach Joe Sacco said. "We're off to a good start with a long way to go here. It is the way we want to play at home."
The injury-riddled Avalanche suffered another loss when defenseman Ryan Wilson left the game in the second period with a leg injury. He did not return.
Ducks 7, Kings 4: Nick Bonino scored his third goal on a power play with 11:21 to play, and surging Anaheim beat visiting Los Angeles in the first Freeway Faceoff of the season. The Ducks have won five of seven to start the season.
Coyotes 2, Stars 0: Mike Smith stopped 17 shots and host Phoenix were at their tight-checking best in a win over Dallas.
Blue Jackets 4, Red Wings 2: Artem Anisimov scored twice in the second period, and Steve Mason stopped 32 shots to lead host Columbus past Detroit. Mark Letestu added a short-handed goal, and James Wisniewski also scored for the Blue Jackets before leaving with a concussion after he struck the end boards with his back early in the second period.
