DENVER - Gabriel Landeskog scored a goal and assisted on rookie Nathan Mackinnon's go-ahead score, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-1 Saturday night for their second six-game win streak this season.

Ryan O'Reilly also had a goal and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 29 saves for the Avalanche, whose 12-1 start is the best in franchise history. P.A. Parenteau added an empty-net score at 19:22 of the third.

Brendan Gallagher scored a power-play goal for the Canadiens.

Landeskog, who had the game's first goal, fired a shot from the wing that bounced away from goalie Peter Budaj. Mackinnon backhanded the rebound into the net to put the Avalanche on top 2-1 at 8:01 of the third. Little more than three minutes later, O'Reilly got a wraparound shot through Budaj for another goal.
