ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Dan Hinote scored two goals in the third period, and goalie Manny Legace continued his mastery over Colorado as the St. Louis Blues beat the Avalanche 4-1 on Friday night.

Brad Boyes scored his fourth goal for the Blues, who extended their winning streak to three games and are 3-1-0 for the first time since 1997-98. Jay McClement had the other St. Louis goal and Paul Kariya picked up an assist, giving him six this season.

Legace made 24 saves in improving his career mark against the Avalanche to 12-1.

Colorado's Jose Theodore, who made 19 saves, fell to 0-4 lifetime against the Blues.

Paul Stastny scored his fifth goal for the Avalanche.

With the game tied at 1-1 early in the third period, Lee Stempniak tried to beat Theodore with a wraparound attempt. Theodore stopped that, but the puck came to McClement on the right side. Theodore stopped McClement's first attempt, but McClement put in his own rebound to make it 2-1 at the 4:57 mark.

Just over a minute later, Hinote, who was a healthy scratch the past two games, converted Jamal Mayer's centering attempt to make it 3-1 with 14:00 left.

Hinote scored again at 15:59 to make it a three-goal lead.

Theodore was starting his first game after recovering from minor knee surgery. The Blues greeted him rudely when just over a minute into the game, Kariya skated in alone down the right side. Theodore stopped Kariya's shot, but Boyes put the rebound home at 1:14.

Stastny, who grew up in St. Louis, tied it when he banked in a shot off Kariya's skate that surprised Legace.

Notes: Colorado forward Andrew Brunette played in his 375th consecutive game, the third-longest active streak in the NHL. ... Kariya has scored a point in all four games. ... The Blues are 2-0 at Scottrade Center. St. Louis went 18-19-4 at home last season and were 30-42-10 the last two. ... Nine of the Blues' 15 goals have come in the third period.
