DENVER (AP) _ Sizzling Joe Sakic scored two goals in a game for the third time in his last five games as the Colorado Avalanche beat San Jose 5-0 Saturday night to tie a franchise record with their eighth straight victory.

Goaltender Patrick Roy recorded his 45th career shutout and moved within three career victories of 400.

Sakic extended his point streak to five games. He has seven goals and five in that stretch. Sakic has 11 goals and 11 assists in 12 games in January, leading the Avalanche to a 9-2-1 record in the month.

Adam Deadmarsh had a goal and two assists and Chris Drury added two assists for Colorado, which matched its eight-game streak from Oct. 18 to Nov. 5, 1995.

The Avlanache have scored 33 goals in the eight games after scoring 96 in their first 40. Roy stopped 22 shots to win his seventh conesutive start.

Mike Vernon was pulled at 4:46 of the second period after giving up three goals. Steve Shields replaced Vernon and stopped 13 of the 15 shots.

The Avalanche led 2-0 in the first on goals by Sakic and Deadmarsh. Sakic sent back a rebound at 10:27 after Vernon had stopped Sylvain Lefebvre and Drury.

Deadmarsh's goal came at 12:44 after Valeri Kamensky dug out the puck behind the net. He nudged it to Deadmarsh, who circled the net and beat Vernon on his stick side.

Roy denied Jeff Friesen with a glove save of a wrist shot from the slot in the opening minute of the period.

Sakic keyed a three-goal second period for the Avalanche with his second goal of the night. Kamensky worked a give-and-go with Deadmarsh at 4:46, which signaled the end of Vernon. Sakic got his second of the night at 12:44 with Colorado on the power play and former Shark Shean Donovan converted a pass from Drury at 18:19.

The Sharks were 0 for 4 on the power play and are now 1 of 14 in three games with Colorado.
