Paul Stastny had two goals and an assist, and the low-scoring Colorado Avalanche broke out for a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Wild on Monday night.

Marek Svatos, David Jones, T.J. Hensick and Milan Hejduk also scored for Colorado, which entered the game as the second lowest scoring team in the Western Conference.

The Avalanche (12-12-0) had a 20-6 shots on goal advantage midway through the second period and capitalized on several Wild turnovers and miscues to build an insurmountable lead.

Hejduk, Hensick and Stastny scored three straight goals in the second -- all coming after Minnesota turnovers -- to give Colorado a 6-3 lead. The offensive outburst was even more surprising since it came against the Wild, the NHL's toughest team to score against.
