Mauldin leads Avalanche past Wild

DENVER (AP) - Greg Mauldin scored two goals to fuel Colorado's four-goal burst in the second period, and the Avalanche had a season-high goals total to beat the Minnesota Wild 7-4 on Saturday night and snap a three-game losing streak.

However, the game did take a toll on the health of the Avalanche, who saw Chris Stewart, John Michael-Liles and Daniel Winnick all sustain injuries.

Winnick left in the first period after being struck in the right leg by a puck. He left the ice under his own power but was limping noticeably. Stewart apparently sustained a hand injury after
fighting late in the second period with Minnesota's Kyle Brodziak, and Michael-Liles was dazed after sliding into the post and hitting his head midway through the second. Michael-Liles was the only one of the three to return to the game.
