Avs move to 3-0 after 2-1 win over Leafs

TORONTO (AP) - P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Colorado Avalanche edge the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Tied 1-1 going into the third, Colorado went ahead at 2:30 on a two-on-one with Jamie McGinn setting up Parenteau.

The goal stood up to video review.

"According to Rule 78.4 'if an attacking player has the puck deflect into the net, off his skate or body, in any manner, the goal shall be allowed.' Good goal Colorado," the NHL said in explaining the call.

Avs rookie Nathan MacKinnon, the 18-year-old first overall pick in the draft, got an assist - his fourth - on Parenteau's third goal of the season. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which got another terrific start from Semyon Varlamov in net.

Joffrey Lupul scored for Toronto (3-1-0).
