ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Jan Hejda scored the go-ahead goal at 10:20 of the third period and the Colorado Avalanche snapped a nine-game road losing skid, beating the Minnesota Wild 4-2 on Monday night.
Colorado won on the road for the first time since Oct. 22 and extended Minnesota's winless streak to seven games.
