Tyson Barrie had a tiebreaking goal late in the third period, Gabriel Landeskog and Nikita Zadorov also scored and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Ducks 3-1 on Friday night.
Jonathan Bernier had 17 saves against his former team and Mikko Rantanen and Sven Andrighetto had two assists each for the Avalanche. Colorado (4-1) is off to its best start after five games since 2013-14.
The news was not all good for Colorado. Nathan MacKinnon left the game with a right eye injury in the first period. MacKinnon was hurt when Anaheim's Derek Grant got his stick under MacKinnon's visor at 13:52 of the period. MacKinnon was on the ice for a while and was helped off by a trainer.
