Viktor Fasth stopped 31 shots for his first NHL shutout and Francois Beauchemin scored in his 500th career game, lifting the surging Anaheim Ducks to a 3-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night.

Sheldon Souray and Saku Koivu each added a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who won their fourth straight game.

Fasth stymied the struggling Avalanche with one sprawling save after another to help Anaheim start a six-game road swing on a good note. The 30-year-old Swedish goaltender has been quite a find for the Ducks since he signed as a free agent over the offseason. He's yet to allow more than two goals in any of his four starts.
