Rookie Makar, Avs cruise to 4-0 round-robin win over Stars

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) High-scoring rookie defenseman Cale Makar connected on an early power-play goal, 30-year-old Pavel Francouz recorded a shutout in his postseason debut and the Colorado Avalanche cruised to a 4-0 round-robin win over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night.

Joonas Donskoi, Vladislav Namestnikov and Andre Burakovsky also scored as the Avalanche improved to 2-0 in the three-game round that will determine playoff seeding for the top four teams in the Western Conference.

"We're certainly trying to give ourselves every advantage we possibly can going into the playoffs and home ice is one of them even though we're playing in Edmonton," coach Jared Bednar said. "I like to see our team get rewarded through all their hard work through the regular season and get the top seed and then we reset and start over for a seven-game series."
