DALLAS (AP) _ Patrick Roy stopped 27 shots for his 46th career shutout and the Colorado Avalanche extended their franchise-long winning streak to 12 games with a 3-0 victory over the Dallas Stars on Sunday.

Roy won his 11th consecutive decision and registered his fifth shutout of the season as he blanked the team with the most points in the Western Conference.

Roy, who has three shutouts during his personal 11-game streak, passed his stiffest test of the afternoon during a two-man Dallas power play midway through the third period. Roy stopped three quick shots while his team was down two players.

Colorado's winning streak is the NHL's longest since the Pittsburgh Penguins won a league-record 17 straight in 1993.

Claude Lemieux, Chris Drury and Jon Klemm scored for Colorado, which last lost on Jan. 9, 3-2 at Detroit.

After a scoreless first period, Colorado got the game's first goal from Lemieux at 8:14 of the second period. His blast from the right circle got through the pads of Stars goalie Ed Belfour for Lemieux's 20th goal.

Drury made it 2-0 with 17:49 left on a power play, beating Belfour from the high slot for his 11th goal.

Klemm added his first of the season off a two-on-one break with Peter Forsberg with 4:03.

Dallas held a 27-12 shots-on-goal advantage, but Colorado's penalty killers kept the Stars off the scoreboard on seven power play chances.

Dallas, 3-1-1 in its last five games, is now only four points ahead of Phoenix and six in front of Colorado in the Western Conference playoff race.

Stars forward Brian Skrudland suffered a first-period chest contusion and did not return.
