Denver • Jamie Benn scored his first two goals of the season, and the Dallas Stars beat Colorado 3-2 on Monday, spoiling the night for Milan Hejduk as the Avalanche forward was honored for playing in his 1,000th NHL game.
Brenden Morrow also scored, and Kari Lehtonen made 29 saves for Dallas.
Hejduk had a goal as he did in his first career game and P.A. Parenteau added another in the Avalanche's first home loss of the season.
Referee Chris Rooney was knocked out of the game by a puck to the head.
