DENVER — Nico Sturm led a balanced Minnesota scoring attack with two goals, Kaapo Kahkonen was sharp in making 29 saves and the Wild earned their fourth straight win by beating the Colorado Avalanche 6-2. 

Mats Zuccarello, Zach Parise, Marcus Foligno and Ryan Hartman also scored for the Wild, who finished 4-1 on their road swing. 

In all, 10 Minnesota players had at least one point. 

Kahkonen continued to be hard to solve during the win streak. 

J.T. Compher and Nazem Kadri scored for an Avalanche team that’s dropped two in a row. They were 5-0 following a loss this season.

The Wild went 4-1 on their western road trip, and will play Friday at home against the L.A. Kings.
