BOSTON (AP) -David Jones scored a short-handed goal to lift the Colorado Avalanche over the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Monday.
Craig Anderson made 29 saves for Colorado.
Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi and Blake Wheeler each scored for Boston (2-3), which closed its season-opening homestand.
After squandering an early 2-0 advantage, Colorado regained the lead on Svatos' goal at 13:32 of the second period when he banged home a rebound from the edge of the crease.
About three minutes later, Jones collected a loose puck at center ice, skated in alone and beat goalie Tuukka Rask with a wrister to the glove side to make it 4-2.
Ryder scored on a backhander out of a scramble with 13:36 left in the game, but there was no comeback like Boston's last game on Saturday night when it rallied for three goals in the closing 8:01 before beating the Islanders in a shootout.
The Bruins did have a power play in the final five minutes but were unable to get a shot on goal.
The Avalanche took a lead in the first period on goals by Hejduk and Hannan 37-seconds apart in the opening 6:52.
Hejduk scored on the power-play off the rebound of Kyle Quincey's shot, giving Colorado power-play scores in each of its five games this season. It's the Avalanche's longest stretch to open a season since they had power-play scores in nine straight to begin the 1997-98 campaign.
Hannan, a defenseman, raced in for a rebound and slipped a shot into a wide-open net at 6:52 after Rask shifted to his left to block Jones' shot from the right circle.
Rask, making his second consecutive start, stopped 18 shots.
The Bruins tied it 2-2 on scores by Recchi and Wheeler midway into the second period.
