DENVER -- Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 30 shots, Ryan O'Reilly and Paul Stastny had goals and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Calgary Flames 4-2 on Friday night.

John Mitchell and Matt Duchene also scored for the Avalanche.

The Avalanche joined the 1995 Quebec Nordiques for the best 15-game start in franchise history. Colorado (13-2) needed 29 games to earn 26 points in last year's lockout shortened season.

Mike Cammalleri had two goals and Mikael Backlund had two assists for Calgary, which has dropped seven of nine. Goalie Karri Ramo made 23 saves for the Flames.
