GLENDALE, Ariz. -- 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
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.
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.
