Avalanche Beat Blues for 5th Straight Time
DENVER (AP) -- Defenseman John-Michael Liles scored twice in the first period, Peter Budaj stopped 28 shots, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the struggling St. Louis Blues 6-3 on Monday night.

Brandon Yip and David Jones scored 17 seconds apart in the second period, and Paul Stastny and Kevin Porter added goals for the Avalanche, who have won five straight over the Blues.

Alexander Steen scored 54 seconds in, Carlo Colaiacovo added a goal, and Brad Boyes had one on a power play, but St. Louis lost its fourth straight.

Budaj bested Jaroslav Halak, who came in allowing 1.79 goals a game but surrendered a season-high six.
