DENVER (AP) - Anthony Stewart scored 1:49 into overtime and the Atlanta Thrashers matched a franchise record with their sixth straight victory, 3-2 over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.

Dustin Byfuglien and Rich Peverley added goals for the Thrashers, who also won six in a row in March 2009.

Ondrej Pavelec made 29 saves. By winning all six games during the streak, Pavelec broke the team record for consecutive wins by a goalie. Johan Hedberg (2009) and Pavelec had shared the mark at five.

During the winning streak, Pavelec has stopped 230 of 238 shots.

David Jones and Matt Duchene had third-period goals for Colorado. Peter Budaj stopped 28 shots for the Avalanche, who had their four-game home winning streak snapped.
