DENVER (AP) - Paul Stastny scored two goals and Tyler Arnason added three assists as the Colorado Avalanche beat Phoenix 4-3 Wednesday night, ending the Coyotes' six-game road winning streak.

Milan Hejduk had a goal and two assists and Joe Sakic added two assists for Colorado, winner of seven straight over Phoenix and 10-0-2-1 in the last 13 meetings.

The Coyotes' road streak was the second-longest streak in franchise history. The longest was eight in 1985 when the team was the Winnipeg Jets.

Phoenix made things interesting after falling behind 4-1 midway through the third period. Michael Zigomanis and Shane Doan scored 1:16 apart, but the Coyotes couldn't tie the score even when they pulled goalie Curtis Joseph with 39 seconds remaining.

Colorado has struggled killing penalties, giving up three power-play goals in a loss to San Jose on Monday night. However, Phoenix was 0-for-6 on the power play.
