ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Gabriel Landeskog had a goal and two assists, Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 27 saves to set a franchise record with his sixth straight win to start a season, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Friday.
Jan Hejda and Nathan MacKinnon also scored for the Avs, who won for the fourth time in their past five games.
Dany Heatley scored his fourth goal in six games for Minnesota and Zach Parise returned ahead of schedule from a foot injury.
Parise -- Minnesota's leading scorer -- was supposed to be out 2 to 3 weeks after blocking a shot with his left foot on Monday, but skated during warmups and felt good enough to play.
Despite Parise's comeback, the Wild lost their third straight.
