DENVER (Ticker) - Milan Hejduk recent productive play is leading to greater success for the Colorado Avalanche.

Hejduk scored twice and Tyler Arnason added his fourth of the season to lead the Avalanche to their fourth win in six games, a 4-1 triumph over the Minnesota Wild.

Avenging a 3-2 loss to Minnesota on October 5, Colorado finished their three-game homestand on a winning note and denied the Wild in their bid for the first 10-win month in franchise history.

Hejduk, who has 10 points in his last eight games, recorded his second multi-goal game of the campaign. The Czech netted a pair in Monday's 6-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

Colorado opened the scoring at 5:02 of the first period. Goaltender Manny Fernandez stopped consecutive shots by defenseman John-Michael Liles and rookie Paul Stastny before Hejduk knocked in the second rebound attempt.

Arnason doubled the margin with 1:32 left in the opening session by weaving his way around the defense before beating Fernandez to the glove side.

After Pavol Demitra halved the deficit with 8:16 left in the second period on a power play, Hejduk answered 56 seconds later while the Avalanche had a man advantage, firing a one-timer of Wojtek Wolski's centering feed for his sixth of the season.
