Francouz steps in, Avs beat Wild in SO, 14th home win in row

DENVER (AP) A disputed goal, a questionable hit and a thrilling finish - the Wild-Avalanche rivalry is still going strong after 19 years.

Colorado goaltender Pavel Francouz stopped 25 shots in relief of injured Darcy Kuemper and three more in the shootout, and the Avalanche beat Minnesota 4-3 on Monday for its 14th straight home win.

The teams forged a rivalry when Minnesota upset Colorado in the first round of the 2003 playoffs. Two more postseason upsets in the next nine years - one by each team - and several battles in the regular season kept it alive, and Monday a new chapter was added when Wild forward Jordan Greenway knocked Kuemper out of the game in the second period.
