DENVER (AP) _ Josef Marha scored his first NHL goal and added an assist and multi-million dollar man Joe Sakic had his first goal of the season as the Colorado Avalanche remained unbeaten Tuesday night with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins.

Adam Deadmarsh had a goal and an assist for Colorado (3-0-1), winners of its last three games. Goaltender Craig Billington stopped 28 of 30 shots including a breakaway attempt by Per-Johan Axelsson late in the third period as Patrick Roy was given the night off.

Ted Donato had his first goal of the season and Tim Taylor got his second for the Bruins, who lost their second straight. Byron Dafoe made 20 saves.

Marha broke a 1-1 tie at 14:16 of the second period flipping a backhander over a sprawled Dafoe. Donato split the defense to send a backhanded shot between the legs of Billington and tied the game at 2:28 of the period.

Deadmarsh send a rebound shot over Dafoe at 18:23 of the second period with the Avalanche on the power play.

Sakic _ who signed a three-year $21 million deal with the Avalanche this season after going into the free agent market _ gave Colorado a 1-0 lead 16:16 into the first period.

The Avalanche captain broke in alone on Dafoe after receiving a pass from Deadmarsh at the red line and sent a waist-high wrist shot past Dafoe's stick.
