DENVER (AP) -- Johan Franzen scored two goals, including the tiebreaker with 12:50 remaining, and Jonas Gustavsson stopped 38 shots, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-2 victory over Colorado on Thursday night to snap the Avalanche's six-game winning streak under new coach Patrick Roy.
Pavel Datsyuk also had two goals and Daniel Alfredsson added three assists for the Red Wings, who lost defenseman Niklas Kronwall early in the first period when he was carried off the ice on a stretcher after being rammed into the boards by Cody McLeod.
Erik Johnson and Gabriel Landeskog scored for the Avalanche as they finished a win short of matching the franchise record for best start (7-0) set by the 1985-86 Quebec Nordiques.
