DALLAS -- Bill Guerin and Mike Modano showed why they were voted All-Star starters, setting each other up for early goals as the Dallas Stars beat the Colorado Avalanche 6-3 Saturday, stretching their unbeaten streak to nine straight.

Avalanche goaltender Patrick Roy didn't live up to his 11th All-Star selection, giving up four goals for a third straight game and getting pulled after two periods. He stopped only 13 of 17 shots.

Brenden Morrow and Niko Kapanen caught Roy out of position on rebounds to give Dallas a 4-1 lead. Jason Arnott scored a power-play goal off backup David Aebischer early in the third period, then Modano scored into an empty net with 1:34 left.
