Stars beat Avs 3-2 at Pepsi Center

Milan Hejduk played career game #1000 in loss

DENVER -  

Jamie Benn scored his first two goals of the season, and the Dallas Stars beat Colorado 3-2 on Monday, spoiling the night for Milan Hejduk as the Avalanche forward was honored for playing in his 1,000th NHL game.
 
   Brenden Morrow also scored, and Kari Lehtonen made 29 saves for Dallas.
 
   Hejduk had a goal -- as he did in his first career game -- and P.A. Parenteau added another in the Avalanche's first home loss of the season.
 
   There was a scary moment early in the game when referee Chris Rooney was hit by a puck after a shot by Dallas defenseman Jamie Oleksiak deflected off the skate of Colorado's Paul Stastny.
 
   The puck appeared to carom off the head of Rooney, who stayed down behind the Avalanche net. Rooney eventually skated off the ice.
 
   No update was given on his condition.
