Denver • Ray Emery stopped 17 shots to remain unbeaten this season, Patrick Kane had a goal and two assists, and Chicago held off Colorado 5-2 on Monday night in the first meeting since the Avalanche halted the Blackhawks' record points streak.

Jimmy Hayes and Andrew Shaw scored 57 seconds apart in the first period, Brent Seabrook contributed another and Jonathan Toews added a late insurance goal for the surging Blackhawks, who have won three straight to move to 3-2-0 after their NHL-record 21-0-3 start to the season was ended in the Mile High City on March 8.

Emery, the backup to Corey Crawford, extended his league record with his 11th consecutive victory to start the season.

Gabriel Landeskog and Milan Hejduk scored for slumping Colorado, which has lost a season-high four in a row.

Kane, the Blackhawks' leading scorer, nearly had a second goal on a breakaway early in the third period, only to be turned away by the left pad of Semyon Varlamov.
