GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Mike Smith stopped 21 shots, Lauri Korpikoski and Martin Hanzal both scored, and the Phoenix Coyotes extended their point streak to five games with a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Wild on Monday night.

Korpikoski scored his fourth goal - all against Finnish goaltenders - in the first period, and Hanzal got his third in three games in the second. Smith was sharp for the second straight start, giving up a goal on a turnover in the second period and fighting off a power play by the Wild in the closing minutes.

Zach Parise scored his 200th career goal, and Niklas Backstrom stopped 32 shots for Minnesota. The Wild went more than 15 minutes without a shot spanning the second and third periods and hit the post twice to remain winless on the road this season (0-3-1).

STARS 3, AVALANCHE 2

DENVER (AP) - Jamie Benn scored his first two goals of the season, and Dallas beat Colorado, spoiling the night for Milan Hejduk as the Avalanche forward was honored for playing in his 1,000th NHL game.

Brenden Morrow also scored, and Kari Lehtonen made 29 saves for Dallas.

Hejduk had a goal - as he did in his first career game - and P.A. Parenteau added another in Colorado's first home loss of the season.

There was a scary moment early in the game when referee Chris Rooney was hit by a puck after a shot by Dallas defenseman Jamie Oleksiak deflected off the skate of Colorado's Paul Stastny.

The puck appeared to carom off the head of Rooney, who stayed down behind the Avalanche net. Rooney eventually skated off the ice.

No update was given on his condition.

Benn and Morrow staked the Stars to a 2-0, first-period lead.

Hejduk skated in his 1,000th NHL game, becoming the 30th player to reach that milestone with the same organization. He is the first player to do it with Colorado.

HURRICANES 4, MAPLE LEAFS 1

TORONTO (AP) - Jordan Staal scored his first goal with the Hurricanes, and his brother Eric added the winner in Carolina's victory over Toronto.

Jeff Skinner had three assists, Patrick Dwyer added a goal and an assist, and Justin Faulk also scored for Carolina. Cam Ward backed up the offense with a 41-save performance.

Matt Frattin scored the only goal for the Maple Leafs. James Reimer made 35 saves.
